Adventures in Stamping - Glitterfish!

Maybe I've been watching too many crazy fish movies on Syfy lately (like Sharktopus, Frankenfish and Piranhaconda) but I really wanted to do a fish this week!
The trick was using glitter, which was part of the rule for this week.
So....
I painted my base white, then I sponged on Wham! Pow! (Orange) by Color Club and Twiggie (Green) by Color Club. Then I painted over that with Essence Glorious Aquarius (Glitter). Stamped my Koi fish with Konad white and then top coated.
I loved it, but I should have done the fish upside down so it faced out instead of in!

  24. Beautifully stamped. Love how the design seems suspended over the glitter. Though I wish the base was more darker for the stamping to shine
