Sorry, my picture sucks! My whales are island indigo blue but the right whale looks pretty dark...
As soon as I saw the Oh, Whale! set in the Spring Catalog I knew I wanted it. When I saw the color combination from Dynamic Duos I knew I wanted to use my whale stamp.
First off, I used the Cloudy Day embossing folder to emboss Whisper White cardstock. I regretted this move later when I decided to put hearts coming out of the whale's blowhole. I stamped a whale image then used the happy Whale Clearlits die to cut out the whale. Then I used the die again to cut out another whale. Coming from Hawaii, I love anything crafty (but NOT corny) that reminds me of Hawaii. I found the wave die in a scrapbooking store that I discovered in Colorado Springs and I had to have it. I thought these waves could work perfectly with my whales. I layered the waves and I also threw in the fish that were cut out with the whale die since I had them. I stamped the hearts and the sentiment in Melon Mambo ink.
