Funky Fossil Designs "Dreaming of Japan" card

Today, I have played with a new stamp set from Funky Fossil Designs called "Dreaming of Japan".

I especially liked the fish on this set, so it was an obvious choice to start making something with that stamp.

I started with a piece of dark blue card and used the Funky Fossil "Pebbles Stencil" with "Tumbled Glass" Distress Oxide Ink. I then die cut a circle shape from the card.

On a piece of white card, I stamped the fish three times using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  I coloured the fish using white, black and orange Posca Pens and then cut them out, sticking them on the circle background.

On a piece of white card, I used "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide inks throughthe  Funky Fossil "Fish Background" stencil.  Then mounted the circle onto the white stencilled card.

In the bottom right hand corner of the card, I stamped "Good Luck" using Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink.  I then added small gold dots using a gel pen, between the pebbles on the blue background.
