Twinkling Koi

Happy Monday, my friends!  For those of you who are without power and/or have suffered damage due to Hurricane Irene, you are in my thoughts and prayers that things will be back on track for you soon.

My card today uses a koi fish image by Local King Rubber Stamp.  My card is also being featured on the Dolce blog with all the supplies I used, if you're interested.     I stamped the fish in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the koi with Twinkling H20s.  I used a fine tip watercolor brush for his scales.  In real life, he shimmer so beautifully.
