Framed Koi

Hello! Leah here today with a card that has a beautiful image and a wonderful saying. I love sentiments that have a lot of meaning. The stamp set I used is called Framed Koi and Kanji with a Wee Butterfly.

I just love this sentiment. He who obtains has little he who scatters has much. So true! I stamped the image and sentiment onto watercolor paper and colored it with Tombow markers. For the water I used a very light blue and quickly covered the entire background. I then went over the water in the front of the image around the koi with the same blue to achieve a darker tone. I love how one color can give varying effects.

The bit of patterned paper is from a collage sheet from Bmuse. I added a twine bow to finish it. I hope you enjoyed my card and be sure to scatter some kindness today!

    The whole concept and execution of your design is lovely, Leah. The quote is especially true, so combining it with the koi pond and flowers finishes off the card perfectly.

    What a great sentiment – I don’t remember noticing that one. I really like the combination of the fish pond image with the lovely flying bird paper in the background – and the bow finishes it off beautifully.
