Koi in Gold

I inked up the images with a Delicata Golden Glitz ink pad, stamped onto watercolor paper, sprinkled emboss powder and heat set. 

Next, I colored with Tombow Dual Brush Pens, using the direct method of applying color and then spreading the color with a water-brush. I started with a clean water-brush, damp not saturated, in the lightest areas and moved to darkest.

For the water and sky, I used a combination of the above technique and also the indirect technique of scribbling color onto a palette, picking up color and spreading.

The background design paper is from A Little Bit Oriental - Papercrafting Collection - Luxury Designer Paper Pad.  I added a sentiment and small lily from the set.

On the inside I used a piece of the colored watercolor paper and stamp the the small lily.
