It's Been a Long Time.....OSA

It has been many years since I've played in the Oriental Stamp Art Yahoo Group Challenges (OSA), and just last week rejoined after a long absence. This is my first card for the group, and it's for the weekly layout challenge, a good place to get my feet wet. The background is a new stamp from Fred Mullet called Mizu Ga Furu/Water Sprinkles and the Koi are from an old I Brake for Stamps set. I added some white chalk ink thru a stencil on the background, and sprinkled it with embossing powder. The layout called for a small edge, so I added the fishnet to the edges.


It feels good to be back!  hugs........
