Whale You Be Mine? Mini Circle Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #136)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today a new challenge started at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

The theme for this fortnight is #136, Valentins Tag / Valentines Day

This time our lucky winner will win this lovely Quilling Kit.

For this challenge I made this Whale You Be Mine? Mini Circle Card. Tiny card for my honey. :o)

For this card, I used my brand new Lawn Fawn 'Whale You Be Mine' Stamp Set. This is my first stamp set from Lawn Fawn. :o)

First I made a background panel. I heat embossed sentiment on a white watercoloring paper and colored the panel in Ink smooshing technique. I used Stabilo markers, plastic pocket bag, sprayer bottle and water. I added some color on plastic pocket bag, sprayed it with water and smooshed color on the panel. I was adding color by color, couple of layers, drying them between.

When I was satisfied with colors and pattern, I glued the panel on a white card base.

Then I stamped whale image on a piece of the thicker watercolor paper. I drew eyelashes on the whale so its a female whale. I did it with superfine permanent black pen. I colored her in watercoloring technique with Distress Ink Hickory Smoke.

After drying, I fussy cut the whale, colored edges with black pen, added 3D dots on the back and placed the whale on the card. I added three enamel stickers and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: d = 63 mm (2 1/2").
