Narwhal Whales Birthday Card

Hi everyone :-D 

Today I want to share with you CAS (clean and simple), Narwhal Whales Birthday Card

First I made a panel. I used stencil from Create a Smile 'Sending Sunshine' kit. I colored white cardstock paper with Stormy Sky Distressed Ink, using blending tool. Then I sprayed whole panel with water and splattered it with water, using paintbrush. After drying, I splattered the panel with white tempera color mixed with water, using paintbrush. Then I removed stencil and cut out the size I wanted. I glued 3-D foams behind blue panel and glued it on a white card base. 

I stamped a sentiment on the card base. This sentiment is from Jane's Doodles 'Under the Sea' stamp set

I stamped narwhals from Create a Smile 'Underwater Love' stamp set on a scrap of cardstock paper. Then I mixed Black Soot Distressed Ink with water. I continued adding water until I got grey color and colored narwhals with it. 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. 

At the end I added a bit of gloss resin on narwhal's tusks and added few dots of resin on blue panel, to create glossy accents 

Card dimensions are 107 mm x 139 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").
