fish rider

Liz is also a fan of nudes, so I wanted to make her a special birthday card. The origami fish is made from a page of a libretto for Die Fledermaus that I got at a library book sale. The origami pattern is from a book my late sister Jeannie brought back for me when she stayed in Japan for a while. I think it was around 1970. She liked unusual things, and I know she would have loved this card. The water plants* at the bottom were done with a metal leafing technique. *Liz interpreted them as flames of hell - which is a very cool concept (wish I had thought of it!).
