Same Fish, Another Wish

This is the page I made in Ruthy's deco themed "Once Upon A Time".
For the water background I used bubbles stamped with sparkly white ink on blue paper, and a piece of bubble wrap attached with decorative pins.
The postcard, which fits exactly, was taken from my never-throw-anything-away stash, its side punched to resemble a page torn from a book.
I added Michael Strong's Cloisonné Fish, stamped and heat embossed with copper embossing powder on an orange CS. You can see how different the gold fish looks like when used in a different context.
The text says:
"Once upon a time there lived an old fisherman... Do grownups believe in fairy tales? If you do - make a wish... the gold fish is waiting!"
It's an homage to Alexander Pushkin's tale "The Fisherman and the Golden Fish".

    Love this page, Dorly! The postcard is so beautiful. I also like the concept of a never-throw-anything-away stash, it is very familiar to me. I'm a big fan of recycling and using the oddest stuff in my artwork.

  2. דף מדליק - אהבתי את השימוש בניילון פצפצים ובחותמת הדג האהובה עלי.
    כתמיד, אין על מייקל סטרונג.

  3. Very clever Dorly. And I love the bubbles.

  4. אהבתי מאוד את השימוש בחומרים שונים - כמו הפצפצים.
    קראתי גם את המאמר שלך על הדקו, והייתי שמחה לשמוע פרטים איך מצטרפים לשרשרת כזו.


  5. OMY! I love the fish... nice card!!! I'm inviting you to my blog! I had a lot of recycled stuff... :)

    You have a beautiful blog!

  6. I absolutely love this page. I wanted to wait until I see it LIVE but it is really amazing. Thanks for your work.

  7. מגניב, מחוכם ואפילו יפה!
    אני רוצה גם דקו....
