Fishing Around for a Card Front
Stopping in to once again share a card front made by Brandy. Wow, I love the scene she created using the Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea stamp set and Coral Reef Collage stamp sets. A little masking was used to place that stunning goldfish over the conch shell. The fish and shell were stamped and white heat embossed onto some watercolor paper. This makes coloring the image very easy as the embossing creates ridges that prevent the water from spreading too much. The image was colored using her Mission Gold watercolors. The colors are far more vibrant than this picture allows - one of the unfortunate facts of the Mission Gold watercolors. In person, stunning!
Brandy used a white gel pen to hand draw all of those bubbles. So fantastic, it feels like we're all in the coral reef enjoying this view, doesn't it?
This card front isn't yet finished into a card. If Brandy sends me a photo, I'll share with you all here. I just couldn't wait to share the card front since it turned out so nicely.
