This koi is one of the most brilliant stamps ever.
Hyperbole is fun, and sometimes, it's true.
I used the Hero Arts Wood background stamp through a 1.75" square mask punched out of a post-it. Then, leaving the mask in place, I sponged a bit of the same color ink (Ancient Page Neptune) to fill in the water. After removing the mask, I stamped the koi just ever so slightly falling out of the lines of the square. The sentiment tucks right into the koi and hangs off the edge a bit as well. This may mean it doesn't qualify for the challenge exactly, but it's pretty darn close!
