Whimsie Doodles Valentine Fish


I have one more Whimsie Doodles card to share with you today before my time as their January Guest Designer is finished.  This cutie is called Valentine Fish.  It's colored with Copic markers using a "feathering technique" where you blend two different color families together.  I haven't done that for awhile and this fish looked like the perfect opportunity to give it a try.  The Copic marker colors I used are BG10, BG11, BG13, B0000, YG01, YG03, YG13 and the "waves" are Copic X Press It colored with the BG10 marker.

My paper choices are Via Vellum Basic Black, Stampin' Up! Taken With Teal, Hero Arts Meadow & Copic X Press It.  I added a little texture to the Meadow panel with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the "waves" are made from a Papertrey Ink. scalloped border die.  My layout started with an Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps sketch from earlier this month but it doesn't look much like the sketch anymore.
