Elegant Koi
by Nancy Penir


Greetings, my Poppy friends! I have a thing for koi. Oh yes, big time! My DH built me a koi pond so that I could watch them. We started with 5, and have been blessed with offspring. We have nearly 30 now! Take a peek...


They're truly elegant creatures, that inspired my card.


My Elegant Koi card began with treating the base with Distress Oxide Inks, and sprinkling water and ink for a watery effect.


I also cut my koi several times from shimmer cardstock.


I think a beautiful koi makes a dramatic statement on a simple 'hello' card, don't you?

Hope you liked my post today. And hope you have a wonderful day of crafting!

Love your inlaid Koi fish, watching them is so relaxing and they are so unique like your card design! Thanks for sharing.
