 Welcome to the last day of the hop! I hope you have enjoyed all the inspiration this week!  Today's feature is "Wealthy Fish".  

 While I was working on this card, I remembered that a very dear stamping friend gave me quite a bit of treasure and these wide staples were part of the stash.  I thought they added a bit of interest to the card. 

 The inside:

For my second set I found an art piece on google as my inspiration.  I went with steel blue ink and TH Fired Brick.  I misted one of the cards with steel blue mist but left the first card clean.  Which one do you think looks better?

Thanks for looking!

  1. The first card is really pretty, but the set of cards made me exclaim outloud! The line images with the grey ink and just a pop of red have a lovely Asian feel, so calm and peaceful and beautiful! ;)

  2. I keep scrolling up to look at them again, lol :)

  3. First card is very pretty but 2nd one is really gorgeous with that fire ball of a sun and the bamboo in the steel blue.

  4. Super fabulous work! I am especially fond of the clean and simple cards....lovely.

  5. The first card is beautiful. I love the colors and the background paper.
    The second and third cards are outstanding! The are beautiful and the essence of oriental themes.

  6. Beautiful cards. I was especially drawn to the bamboo card. I like how you have only a partial bamboo image in the lefthand corner. Stunning work!

  7. I love the different styles you have used here! The really fussy fish which is gorgeous, both inside and out, and then the striking black and red combos. Great balance and very striking!

  8. Fantastic cards! I really like the one with fire red sun!
