Whale Hello
by Trina Pham

Whale hello everyone!  As you might have guessed, I have a punny nautical card to share today.  It was inspired by Sandy Allnock and her collection of porthole cards.


The background was created with blue, aqua and green alcohol inks on yupo paper.  Spritz it with rubbing alcohol to give it a bubbles texture.  Went in with a Copic Colorless Blender to add even more bubbles. The large whale from Wonderful Whale Frame was die cut three times from mixed media paper and colored with Copics.  


Two circle dies from Circle Basics were then used to die cut from mixed media paper twice and from silver foil paper once.  They were stacked for dimension to form the porthole frame.  The sentiment from Oceanside Typewriter Sentiments was stamped in blue on a mixed media panel, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.


Mounted the panel onto a white card base with fun foam for more dimension and drew in the nails on the silver porthole frame with a black Copic marker to finish.  And that is all.  Thank you for dropping in.  Have a wonderful week.





I love the puns and this is so fun. We are on the same page with puns and portholes and yours is gorgeous with the silver paper and nails. Love the scene you made.

Lovely coloring and design on this sweet card.

Wow!!! Such fabulous alcohol ink background for those whales, and the metallic frame for the porthole is just perfect! It's a very interesting card, and love the clean look!!

What a fun way to use these whales, Trina! Wonderful coloring!

Fabulous! Just like looking through the porthole on a boat. Love the metallic frame and the great watery background.

Delightful card, Trina. Saw Sandy's porthole cards, also. Your inspired design works so well. Thanks for sharing your card and the tip about spraying alcohol to get the bubbles.

OMG..Trina your alcohol ink ocean background is gorgeous for your beautifully colored whales. Love how you layered your circles with the top foil layer and drawn in porthole nails..so clever. TFS your beauty my friend. Hugs...Nancy
