Farewell My Fishy Friend

This is a monochromatic card I've made a few times, to illustrate water-colouring techniques. I have stamped the crab in Staz-On Jet Black Ink on Watercolour Paper and then used my Aqua Painter with Certainly Celery and Old Olive ink pads to colour the crab.

I'm certainly going to miss Fishy Friends. Ditto the versatile birthday set called It's Your Birthday. The patterned paper I've used in the card above, available in several colours, is also retiring and has been discounted by 25% so it's very tempting and affordable to buy, as are many other paper packs.

I might also mentioned that Stampin' Up! ink pads will be priced at $11.95 from the 1 April 2009, a $2 increase. The refills will be $5.95, a $1 increase. So if there are any you're considering buying, it may be worth deciding before the end of the month to beat the price rise.

Love from Crafty Kim

Ooohhhh! I love this one! So effective in monochrome. Your star and flower cards in the next post look great all lined up - love the Bud Basics one, will miss that set!

Kim, just love this card. The monochromatic style looks lovely in green - so serene looking.
Beautiful job - you've inspired me to try this though I don't have the crab set but can think of other images to use.
Thanks for shaeing!
