Art Neko: koi

This card is made with an Art Neko rubber stamp
called Koi Pond and can be found here.

I made the card for the Oriental Stamp Art group
where the technique of the month is Faux Stitching.

I stamped this with a kaleidacolor Desert Heat.
This is a multi color inkpad.
Next I used a ruler with holes (from Tim Holtz) and a 
craft pick pen all around the image. With a black marker
I went from hole to hole to make the faux stitching.

Next i stamped the sentiment in black on the right top corner,
glued the panel to black paper and then onto the deep red card.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day.

What a stunning card Hetty - love how you have used the Kaleidacolor ink, and made the faux stitching. The way you have mounted the o,mage panel really finishes the card in a dramatic way.

The Kaleidacolor pad was a great choice for those koi...and your faux stitching is so realistic looking.
Thank you too for sharing the photos in another post of your husband's birthday outing, I enjoyed those. I admit I don't know much about Maastricht other than giving its name to one of the EU treaties! So it was lovely to see it as a real place.
