I haven't played along with the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge for a while. I just never seemed to get around to it. But this week I made a point to get in on time!
The theme this week is "Zodiac Signs". I got a set of Tropical-themed stamps with last months "Creative Stamper" magazine and I chose the rather fabulous-looking fish for Pisces.
The background is watercolour card that's been used to mop up excess paint. I want over it with a fairly wet wash of Luminarte Acrylic Glaze in Azurite. The fish was stamped and embossed in black and then coloured with alcohol markers and a white gel pen. I used a bubbles stencil (homemade) to sponge on some white ink around the fish.
The colours are more muted than I would have liked due to being coloured onto a darker background. If I were to do it again I'd stamp first, mask off the fish, lay down the background and then colour.
