Koi Tattoo Art Tag

Hello Everyone!

Rachael here with a really quick and easy project that packs a lot of punch! The finished project can be used as a gift tag on a present, an accent on a page or an addition on a greeting card. This project features the Koi Tattoo set and is not exactly a tutorial, but just a little project for inspiration. ;-) I hope you like it.

After stamping out and coloring my Koi, I started out using a plain craft tag, some no-name blue ink (to set off the orange Koi) and my brayer.

I rolled the brayer in the ink on all sides to make sure I had an even application and layed down the color. I did this twice until my tag was completely covered.

I cut out my Koi and placed it on the tag and stamped 'harmony". Next I used the small wave stamps from the set to create a textrued background. After gluing my koi fish down I slightly distressed the edges of the tag and added some green ribbon. You could add a little glitter to this, or perhaps some glossy accents for a wet look.

Voila! Easy and fast, with a big punch!

Hope you enjoy this little project and you're inspired to use your Koi Tattoo set! ;) Its one of my favorites!
