Welcome to the September Hop that showcases the new stamp sets from MFP/ A Heinrich Company!
This stamp set is called Koi Fish.  I made this card with a very special friend in mind.  We have been friends since 1965, and she has Koi fish in the pond behind her house!
                                                                             
I stamped these with Memento ink and then colored with Copics, using a couple of different shades.  I mounted the fish up on a blue round CS, to imitate a pond.  The sentiment is printed on a panel, that was also highlighted with orange CS to tie in the colors of the fish.  I added some plastic "air bubbles" as accents!  I am so glad you stopped by today.

Your koi fish look like they are swimming around in the pond enjoying themselves.
