Whale Showers

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  after all of the comments both here and on facebook on the last Whale card I created, I thought I would share the other one I made using the same set - Taylored Expressions Showered with Love stamp set - whimsical is always such a lovely change of pace.

I have stamped the whale using Imagine Memento ink in Teal Zeal, the waves are also in Teal Zeal and the water spout in Tuxedo Black - the hearts have been coloured using Chameleon PensThe cloud is from the Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sun and Clouds Etched Dies - I find that I use this cloud a lot with whimsical images - just the right size!

The card front has been cut using light blue card stock and the Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies.  This has  been popped up onto a white card base cut/embossed using Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

The waves have been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped up above the base of the card front also using 3D Foam Squares.  The Whale has been popped up using 3D Foam Squares for dimension.  The water spout has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors, the hearts coloured and adhered above the whales head using double sided tape.  

The sentiment has been stamped using Tuxedo Black ink and cut/embossed using the tag from the Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Elegance Becca Feeken Giving Occasions Stamp and Die Set.  The die has been used as a stencil and sponged using Summer Sky Ink inside the cutting lines.  This has been popped up using 3D Foam Squares centred below the waves.  Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer has been used to create faux water drops around the water spout and the hearts have also had a coat added - for that extra shimmer.
