Have a Whale of a time!

Here's a card I was having a play with today.  

I started having some fun with the whale from Fox and Friends stamping him first in Tempting Turquoise then straight into Pacific Point before stamping him on Whisper White.  I then masked him and using a stencil scrap from Swirls and Scribbles Sizzlit, I sponged both Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point to create a splashy background.  

The background cards are also scraps in both colours.  Stamped the border stamp from Fresh Vintage in Pacific Point onto the Tempting Turquoise card and the jumbled Birthday stamp from Happiest Birthday Wishes in Pacific Point onto the same coloured card stock.  I used a White Gel Pen to make some faux stitching.

The sentiment is also from Happiest Birthday Wishes and is stamped in Pacific Point and punched out using the Modern Label Punch.  It just fits without the exclamation mark. 

Here's how I finished off the inside -

I repeated the process of stamping the whales in both colours along some Whisper White card and using the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch I made a choppy wave effect along the top.  Whale was die cut with the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet.  I cut out the word in both colours then snipped a wavy edge and attached the Tempting Turquoise onto the Pacific Point letters.  The rest was handwritten with the White Gel Pen. 

As I've used masking I'm going to pop this into Less is More
