What a hilarious new set from Vera Lane Studios, Sakana. I made a card featuring her, although had to couple her with an image from another Vera Lane Studios set, Ocean 11

Isn't Sakana awesome ! I coloured her with copics, gel pen and distress ink. Then fussy cut her and tied bakers twine bows in her hair. The fish is coloured the same way. But I also used a micron pen to add tiny little scales to his face. Looks so effective doesn't it.

The background is a Gelli® print, then I added some additional teal with a catalyst tool. And matted this onto a white card base.

I just love this colour combination. One thing I have learned in my experimentation and exploration of arts, crafts and mixed media is to not be afraid of colour. Yes I look at the colour wheel ... get a little guidance but then I go for it. Whats the worst that can happen, its just paper - right :)

Have a wonderful day x
