Beluga Whale Birthday Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #121)

Happy Friday everyone :-D 

It´s time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

The theme for this fortnight is #121, Unter dem Meer / Under the Sea

Our sponsor for this challenge is Görlach GmbH, with a fabulous prize for one lucky winnerset of sparkling gem stones made of glass.

For this challenge I made this CAS (clean and simple), Beluga Whale Birthday Card

First I made a panel. I colored white paper (160 grams) with Stormy Sky Distressed Ink, using blending tool. Then I sprayed whole panel with water and splattered it with water, using paintbrush. After drying on the air, I splattered the panel with white tempera color mixed with water, using paintbrush. 

After the panel was completely dry, I stamped sentiment on the panel and glued panel on the white cardstock card base. 

I stamped a whale on a scrap of cardstock paper. Then I mixed Black Soot Distressed Ink with a lot of water. I continued adding water until I got light grey color. When I was satisfied with color, I shaded the whole image, using fine paintbrush. After drying, I fussy cut the image, colored edges with black permanent marker, glued 3-D foams on it and placed it on the card. 

Both, image and sentiment are from Jane's Doodles 'Under the Sea' stamp set .

Card dimensions are 95 mm x 133 mm (3 3/4" x 5 1/4").
