Glittery Koi Pond

     For a private ATC swap on my Design Divas group the theme was pond life.  Well, I had just received this Lotus Garden stamp set from Bombshell stamps and you know how I am about koi so....

     The koi were stamped on acetate and then glitter was added to the back. I found this technique on the Bombshell stamp site (thanks Kathi) and just loved it with the darling fish.  The background paper is K&Co and stamped with a unknown kanji stamp that was embossed with glitter. The entire card was then mounted onto gold wrapping paper.(Ladies, you really should buy yourself a roll of gold wrapping paper at Christmas time, it is soooo much cheaper than purchasing gold paper at the store and it lasts forever.)
