W is for Whale

W is for whales.  These big beautiful creatures of the sea.  I don't think we understand the size of these creatures until we can get up close and personal, not that I have.
These creatures are beyond amazing to me.  They are so big, but can still get their bodies out of the water like the above picture.  They are a support to other life, by allowing barnacles and sea lice to attach to their skin and live there.
There are over 75 different species of whales in the sea.  The best known whales are the humpback, orca, and blue whales to name a few.  Did you know that whales like to sing?  They do.  They use their singing to communicate with other whales.
Today, I want to share a card that shows off a cute little whale.
The base of the card is Whip Cream cardstock.  I then took the scallop border die from the Border Basics and die cut with Huckleberry Fusion, Blue Lagoon, Beach Ball, Beach Breeze and Pool Play cardstock.  I actually used the negative to create the layers of waves.
I then stamped the whale from the Whale You ATS (Bloom Benefit from the Bloom This Way catalog) with Black Licorice ink on Whip Cream cardstock.  I then used Huckleberry Fusion ink and sponged the whale.  I added him to the card with foam squares.
I didn't have the right sentiment, so I printed the sentiment with my computer and Whip Cream cardstock, cut it into to strips and then cut each of the words apart.  I added the words to the card using foam squares.
To finish the card, I added some Journey Sequins-Blue Skies for bubbles.  Enjoy!
