Card Challenges

I love the colours chosen for this next challenge! Blues are a favourite, I love the cool, calm effect it brings to any project. I tried a watercolour effect for the background, stamped the koi with a darker blue ink, added a touch of green for the seaweed floating in the background, and stamped with an asian stamp in traditional red ink for the finishing touch.

This was stamped for the Playdate Cafe Challenge PDCC12. And, I also used this card for the Stamp Something "Blue and White" Challenge and the Just a little Something challenge with watercolours.

Hope you like it!
