Blog Blitz: Gentle Koi
by JJ Bolton


I'm excited to be here on Day 2 of the new release Blog Blitz!  I hope you had a chance to stop by yesterday to see the amazing set of dies Jeanne debuted.  They are so cool!  Speaking of cool, I'm in love with this Gentle Wave die.  It makes a perfect wave background, but I can think of all kinds of ways to use this die.


For this card, I watercolored a panel and then die cut it with the Gentle Wave die.  I layered it over a piece of light blue vellum.  In person, the vellum gives the waves a really soft look.  I also used watercolors to color my koi fish.  Koi are naturally splotchy, which is so easy to do with watercolors.  I just die cut the fish using watercolor paper and then sprayed them with water.  Then I picked up the watercolor and just touched it to the fish.  The color will spread by itself and then all you have to do it set it with a heat gun.  Super easy! 


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  And with all Blog Blitzes, all you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to win one of these awesome Gentle Wave dies!
