FTTC50 Peaceful Koi Pond

I was very excited to see the new challenge over at Flourishes, this week, was to create a scene. One of my very favorite stamp sets I have purchased from them is the Waterlily set. It includes 16 stamps and there are so many ways to use it!

I chose a very straight forward approach to this card, by stamping and coloring multiple pieces and then assembling them in layers using Pop Dots. The images were colored in OMS and colored pencils. My fish were all coated in Crystal Effects. I used Stickles for sparkle and I few Dewdrops as accents.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
