CAS Koi


The latest in my long-running series of koi- carp themed cards! That's because it is my partner's parents' big hobby and this is a birthday card for his step-father.

I used some watercolour paper I'd attempted a background technique on, stamped and gold-embossed the fish (Sheena Douglass)  on it , and cut it out. For the background , I used a Chinese script stamp by Oyster stamps.

  9. That's what I love about a handmade card, it can be tailor made to fit the recipients perfectly. I think the layout is brilliant, the placement of the Chinese text is so clever and the golden carpe looks fantastic. Well done!
