Ooh look what the postie brought me

One of the Crafting Coven, the lovely Becky, posted me this fab gift! A wonderful Tim Holtz paper and a couple of great quality stamps! what a lovely surprise.

I couldn't wait to experiment.
Becky bought me this stamp as my cousin is a tattoo artists and specialises in Japanese tattoo's, so the koi ties in nicely. I coloured in the image with pro markers, distressed the edge with my ever useful distress inks, matted and layered on a couple of pieces of card and added a ribbon and message.

I coloured in with promarkers and added a bit of glitter on the wings with my sakura pens. Distressed the edge of the design and mat and layered it. I punched ferns from green vellum that I stamped with bits of bown ink to add depth, layering up some angelina fibres that I ironed into a sheet and separated into smaller pieces by tearing it, adding a fabric brad for a bit of dimension.

Finally adding some gems for that little bit of sparkle.

I am looking forward to experimenting with these.

Happy crafting
