Whale Hello There
by Donna

Hello everyone!

Since this weekend is the unofficial start of the summer season, I thought I would create a fun summer themed card for you today.

Whale 1

To create this card I used blue alcohol inks on glossy cardstock to make a background for the whale to hang out on. I stamped the whale and waves on watercolor cardstock and colored the images using distress inks.  The colors of distress ink I used were: Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Pumice Stone and Worn Lipstick. 


To assemble the card I cut out the whale and the waves.  I cut around the whale fin and tucked the waves under it. Glue these to the alcohol background layer and adhere it to a licorice cardstock layer.  Using foam adhesive I glued this to a white card base. Stamp the greeting on the bottom right corner of the card and you're done.

Pretty easy right?

 Thanks for stopping by today and I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!




I love your card design, especially tucking the waves under the whale's fin! I am just getting into alcohol inks and thank you for an idea of how to use such a background. Well done!

I like how the whale is positioned on this beauty -tfs

what a fun way to say hi to someone and love that background, I only recently invested in some distress inks so am still learning to use them but love how effective they are on your background.

A great way to start the summer Donna!

Oh, that whale is too cute! Love the punny sentiment!
