Sweet Pea - Koi on white

Good Morning! If you are looking for Paper Sunddaes Birthday Blog Hop - please scroll down!
I've been neglecting my Sweet Pea Stamps lately, so here is a little remedy.
I used Koi from ching-chou kuik's collection, stamped her on watercolor paper and used water based markers and aquapainter for coloring. I'm not using reds very often, so it was a bit of challenge for me ;) With the very colorful image I decided to use all white background and accessories. I was itching to add a bit of color around the edges of flowers, but this week's challenge on Sweet Pea Stampers is to use all white (except the image) - so I resisted ;)
The die cut flowers and the medallion are dry embossed and the background panel is wet embossed using a hollographic EP, just to give it a little extra sparkle.

I'm entering it into the following challenge:
In a Sweet Pea Dream - under the sea (mermaid)
Sweet Pea Stampers - all white
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - bingo - I used the bottom row - die cuts, embossing, ribbon
Make it Colorful - coloring with red (for the reds I used my daughter's Crayola markers - so no colors or names...)

Ingredients:
Stamps - Sweet Pea Koi, Stampendous - background stamp with little leaves
Media - Versafine Ink, Versamark, SU & Crayola markers, aqua painter
Paper - Watercolor paper, SU Whisper White
Other - Heartfelt Creations - posy die, Spellbinders Medallion die, Nestabilities Scalloped Oval, SU embossing folder, ribbons, jeweled brad, bling
