This card is a double challenge:
MojoMonday (MOJO96) sketch http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/2009/07/mojo-monday-week-96.html; and
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday (FTTC25) http://flourishesnewsletter.blogspot.com/2009/07/flourishes-timeless-tuesday_20.html, to use shimmerz on our card.
My background panels, which to me represent sea grasses, are done with the shaving cream technique. The swirly bg is done with sponging on cuttlebugged cs. I also sponged around the koi, which have been watercolored, then covered in gold shimmerz. tfl
