Embedded Koi



I'm not always very good at following instructions for techniques, but I thought I'd have a go at the 'embedded image' tutorial at Technique Time Tuesday.

This was not my first attempt! I tried two other stamps and different colours of embossing powder but I found it worked best with copper embossing powder and my old friend, the koi stamp.

I like the effect created by the technique...a bit like enamelling. I think I'll be using it again.

Marina, I'm so glad that you'll use it again, because this is STUNNING! GORGEOUS use of the technique--it makes your friendly koi look like he (or she) is just under the surface of a pond! GORGEOUS, friend! Thanks for joining us at TTT! :)
