Koi Valentine


So I have to be honest, the way the Koi turned out totally surprised me!! I was happy that the colours blended well and then thought I would try to use the blender pen to make scales. And what do you know they look cool! Hahaha I'm lov'n the blender pen.

All you do is colour and shade your image.
Allow it to dry.
Take your blender pen and dab it on the image.
The blender markers sort of suck the colour out as it dries.

Supplies

I love the vintage baby cards...each one is so sweet! There is something endearing about vintage designs with baby items.

And the Koi! WOWZA! They are beautiful and what a fabulous, subtle technique with the scales. They look like they will swim right off the card.

Oooh! The koi came out so adorable! I feel like I am at a Pagoda Restaurant. The orange one is probably my fave. I love the way that you made the scales Melyssa, sooo adorable.
