Whale Song

Hello.  Welcome.  I made a card for a friend.  

I did a watercolour wash with blue and green distress inks and cut Memory Box Tiny Bubbles die many times.  This is a two part die so I found a piece of greeny packaging in the scraps box to cut the back piece and then some strips of blue card, also scraps, to cut the bubble detail, and stuck them together.  Then I added them all over the card.  I stamped embossed and coloured the Rubber Dance whale, also with distress inks and some white gel pen highlights.  The Rubber Dance sentiment is stamped on vellum and I used Memory Box Lisette Buckle to attatch it to the card.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
