cloud9 lure the best watercolor (Cloud9, SSS)

Take a gander at the inspiration photo over at Cloud9 (yep, I finally own some WPlus9 stamps so I can play) and what do ya see?

Besides the protea in the bouquet (my bridesmaids carried them anno damals) my eye went immediately to the watercolor BG.  Love.

So off I went.  Inked a Hero Arts Class Fabric Design BG stamp with Antique Linen , spritzed with water and stamped onto panel.  Inked the edges. Put some Distress Inks spritzed with water on my craft sheet and  created my watercolored fish.  What to do with the leftover mess on the craft sheet.  Smear some of the color onto my stamped BG!

Although I own Folk Art Florals and this was clearly a bouquet photo, I couldn't go there.  Had to give it an edge.  And the fish are the only other WPlus9 I currently possess.  So, a "bouquet" of fish.  In a mason jar vase stamped onto alcohol inked acetate.  Hanging on a fishing rod represented by a repeatedly-stamped sentiment.  The leaves - they're pretty true to the inspiration photo.  Edge?  Yes.  WhomIgonnasenditto?  Clueless.

Also playing at Simon Says Stamp - A Bit o' Green.

Thanks for looking.
