Wednesday Stamper - Fish

I've missed the last two Wednesday Stamper Challenges as a result of being away and then too busy, so I thought I would ensure I joined in this week by doing something simple and quick as a relaxing Friday night lead in to the weekend (a long one at that as I have a day off work on Monday!!)

As the theme is fish I thought I would use this lovely Pisces stamp by Chapel Road. I bought it in Brisbane (when there for Stamping Down Under) three years ago because I just loved it, but incredibly, this is the first time I have used it! How/why does that happen??? Perhaps I have too many stamps...

Anyway this ATC only uses this stamp and a favourite tiny text stamp by Collections (Julie van Oosten) and has a background which has been coloured with Starburst Stain (in a blue shade), Moon Shadow Mist (aqua and gold) and also gold, white & black inks. I used a gold gel pen to emphasize the wording. As per usual the glimmer from the Moon Shadow Mist doesn't show up in the scan.

Ciao for now...
