Tons of Love

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by.  I have been praying around with backgrounds and am loving the way this one turned out - and of course the whale.  There are whales surfacing everywhere at the moment and I love seeing the photos - they are so amazing.

The card font has been created by spraying Little Birdie Crafts Color Spray in Ocean Mist onto acetate, this has then been spritzed with water and a piece of white card stock placed on top and the Colour Spray allowed to soak in - the results are instant and I am pretty sure you would never get the same result twice!

I have cut/embossed the card front using the largest die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting MachineIt has then been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The Whale has been coloured using Chameleon Pens, fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped up onto the card front also using 3D Foam Squares.  A computer generated sentiment has been layered onto slightly larger Black card stock and adhered below the whale using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

I have finished by adding water drops using Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer.
