Connie-The Koi

I came across this image by ching-chou kuik titled
"The Koi"
that had been stamped onto some vellum
some time ago and decided to play....
I cut a white mat and then a frame by 
fitting 2 dies together (by SB) and
airbrushed the scallop frame and 
UTEE'd it.
Then I used some gorgeous background paper
from a seed corn company ad.... can you believe it?
I added some gel stickers in one corner but
didn't want to cover too much.
You can find this beautiful stamp over at
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love the turqouise color you've used in hair and dress. Nice contrast. Cool with UTEE. :)

  2. Connie, lovely job. I love the background paper and the swirl you added, gives it a sealife look. Very pretty

  3. Lovely colours Connie. Always interested and inspired by different techniques and styles.
    Best wishes, Sharon

  4. Really cool backing. Love it.
    Hugs Nat

  5. Very pretty technique Connie. I love that swirl. Lovely

  6. This is lovely - such a great technique to colour on vellum, it gives a lovely soft effect. Perfect for the underwater theme of this image. Love the upclying too - that paper from an advert is great! :)


  7. Gorgeous Connie! Just felt like sitting in an U-boat looking through out a bull eye seeing this beauty in the sea. Great technique!
    Hugs, Karina
