Dancing Fish


This week I attended a Fred Mullett "Dancing Fish" workshop. Mr. Mullett is from the United States and is quite entertaining. This fish is just one of many fish stamps he has designed. It was approximately 10 inches long. While not a lover of fish stamps, I was able to experiment with one of his flower stamps, using the technique that he taught us in the five hour class. Here is my third attempt at this fish. I worked totally independently on this fish, choosing from over 50 transparent and opaque embossing powders. Being a lover of bold colour, I experimented with black, neon purple, medium green, and neon green embossing powders, using a cocktail straw cut on an angle, gently arranging colour where I wanted. Then, I lightly sprinkled a vanilla embossing powder over the entire fish. Enhanced features are painted with an inexpensive children's watercolour paint set. Interesting, eh?

Sounds like this technique is extremely labour-intensive, but the results are terrific.

Glad to see you have a blog now. I'll put a link on mine to yours.

Oh, my, this is beautiful! Are you serious - a 10" stamp?? Wow, I don't think I've ever seen one that large. Sounds like a fish story to me. lol Seriously, it's a great card.
