Two fish, blue fishPosted: March 23, 2017
I have a third alcohol ink background to share today. I think this one might be my favourite. I love the splash of colour above the waves. I didn’t set out to create the sea complete with wavy splashes above the surface; I just experimented with colours, ink and blending solution using a felt pad to lay colour over colour. The result was little bubbles but also excess spatter which is what made it so sea-like. I cut one fish out of sparkly dark blue cardstock and the other out of white.
I cut one fish out of sparkly dark blue cardstock and the other out of white. I ended up using the same blue cardstock for the card base and the white cardstock for a very narrow mat to frame the panel.
You probably recognise the title of today’s post as being taken from one of Dr Seuss’ delightful books. One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue fish was one of my early favourites and one I used when teaching each of my children to read.
