watercolored fish

Yesterday’s inspiration challenge at SCS had me reaching for my  fish stamps from Fred Mullett. 

I started by inking up the fish image in several waterbased markers.  Three shades each of yellow and blue (light, medium and dark) were applied directly to the image which was then lightly spritzed with water and stamped on watercolor paper.   The intent was to keep the main panel clean and simple

I added the postage images (from Limited Edition) and text (from Above The Mark) on the main panel, with the text stamped on the base card as well.  Paper piercing on the lower right was added to draw the eye fron the upper left corner to the lower right.

The piece that inspired this card is show below.

Thanks for stopping by!
