Ribbon Fish Tutorial

Edited: When I made my ribbon fish, I literally do it based on my own trial and error. I do not follow anyone's tutorial and I stated it clearly on my post that I made the ribbon fish design myself based on trial and error. However, Karyn, who's a ribbon sculpture artist contacted me and let me know that she had written a ribbon fish tutorial years back and since selling ribbon sculpture tutorial is her way to earn a living, I decided to pull out my free fish tutorial to support her. If you want, you can purchase the ribbon fish tutorial from her site HERE.

I think it's important for artist to support each other and I hope you can understand my decision to pull out this free ribbon tutorial. Thank you for your understanding. :)

---------------------------------

Hi peeps! Finally, I finished my ribbon fish tutorial. Heh... sorry it took so long. Good thing, some of you are persistent & keep me to hold my promise. My first fish card is the one that I used for my blog header (see card on the right side of the header).

It might take you a couple trial & error to get the fish looks right. The first time I did this fish for Gallery Idol, I didn't have any direction on how to do it. I basically figured it out myself just by looking at the end result. Took me at least an hour for my first try. This time, it only took 10 minutes.

With a fish like this, you don't need much of anything else to make your card shine. I made a super simple, CAS looking card. I do adore my fish.


Thank you so much for stopping by here. Hugs, Vera.
