Best Wishes – a “Whale”y Great Card

I feel like I can never have enough cards on hand for mens’ birthdays – So I made three of this card today to add to my arsenal! This one matched up well with 2 challenges.

Here is my card:


I used a stamp set that I received in a Studio Calico kit a couple years back! All the images on this card are from that set! Using Mint Macaron & Night of Navy ink pads I stamped up this scene. I did the generation stamping to get various depths of color for my ocean!  My whale features the “rock n’ roll” technique – inking up first in the mint and then rolling it on the navy ink pad. I covered my whale with glossy accents – I am not sure you can see that in this photo – but I did, really!! Then I used a Doodlebug Beetle Black Sprinkle for his eye!! And there you have it – My “Whale”y great card!!

I am linking this card up to these 2 challenges:

Less Is MoreWeek #276 One Layer Card: At Sea


INKspirationalChallenge # 108 Colour: Mint & Navy

I used Stampin’ Up! Ink colors -Mint Macaron & Night of Navy!

Again, thank you for your visits – they make me smile!!

Have a wonderful day and Happy creating!!!

    The ‘rock and roll’ technique is a new one to me, and I really do think it gives a great bi-colour effect on your lovely card. Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges. Come back next time! Marina
