Whale You Be Mine?
Well, work and family have gotten the better of me and it's been a while since I had a chance to participate in a challenge or post an entry here on my blog. I won a gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store this week and got some fun new dies and stamps in and felt the need to play. So without further ado, my first card today is for the CTD355 challenge over at the Color Throwdown blog and the Casology Cue Card aquatic challenge. I started by doing a smooshing technique onto some Canson watercolor paper using 3 different colors of distress inks. I cut the panel down and die cut it into strips using the Lawn Fawn rolling hills dies to create my waves. I used the same dies to cut some opaque vellum and then layered them together over a medium gray panel of cardstock onto a white card base. Using the stamps and dies from the Lawn Fawn Whale You Be Mine set I created my adorable little whales and them mounted them between the panels so they were facing one another. I stamped my sentiment using some Snow pigment ink and then heat embossed it using white detail embossing powder and then added some white dashed lines around the card and the waves to add a bit more visual interest. I think this card is too cute and will have to give it to my little granddaughter for Valentine's Day!
