Water

Hi Everyone,

this is again one of my last minute entries - my specialty ;), in case you don't know that....

I have to play with the current Mod Squad challenge - the theme is water. The main reason however is not the theme I admit, but the challenge sponsor - THE Ryn Tanaka from Designs by Ryn.

I had been thinking about her stamps needing some ink and now I have a perfect excuse to pull them out.....


Made a water color background. Die cut a circle from it. Stamped the bubbles, die cut the Koi (Memory Box) and did my little color lifting trick to make the bubbles more 3D-ish. Die cut the fish again from some leftover piece of water colored card stock and glued them in, just a bit off-set to give it more interest. Added the sentiment, which is by Clearly Besotted stamps. 


My long time blog follower probably know that I am a big fan of Ryn's, but then - who isn't? Her water droplet stamps are just fabulous and an all time favorite of mine!

Noch 'ne nasse Karte .. *kicher*, sieht aber richtig toll aus, wie die Goldfischchen so leuchten.

Fabulous!!!! I have a Ryn stamp that's NBUS. Shame on me. And I've probably missed this deadline.

Becca Cruger said...

Wow. That's the only word I can dream up right now. This design is incredible and I love the bubble technique!

The realism here is awesome. Perfect use of Ryn's stamps. Love koi anyway but allowing them to swim around in this wonderfully designed water has to make them happy...it sure makes me happy.

This is like looking down into a Koi water garden - I'm amazed at how beautiful those water droplets look!

Ryn Tanaka said...

Aw, thanks so much for what you wrote Cornelia! You made me smile :) Love the watercolour effect that you got with the bubbles and the circular design. I feel like I'm looking down into a koi pond. Beautiful piece!

Ryn Tanaka said...

Hmmm... Doesn't look like my first comment posted... I'll try again. Thanks so much of what you wrote Cornelia. You put a smile on my face :) Needed that today. Love the watercolour effect that you got with the bubbles and the circular composition of this card. I feel like I'm looking down into a koi pond. Beautifully done! Thanks for sharing. Always love seeing your art! Xo
