Designs by Ryn - Fish tag

Quite a while before my holiday I had an email from Ryn asking me if I would make some samples using her stamps and once I had seen her designs I couldn't resist, especially these fishy ones.

I made some background card using paints, die-cut a tag and stamped the school of fish over it using stormy sky DI. 

Some others were cut out and added for dimension. The Koi were stamped in black archival over alcohol inked mirri board and cut out. They were edged with a black Sharpie pen to give them a clear outline and definition.

These are beautifully drawn stamps with a fabulous sketched effect and they are very deeply etched to produce excellent stamped results. Do go over and take a look at what Ryn designs and sells. She is also on Facebook here.

Stamps I used -

Let me know if you have any stamps by Ryn and what you make/made.
