Smiling Whale ...

Good morning! I'm hosting the Great Impressions Blog today.

I had a card to make for my daughter to mail out and decided on this adorable Smiling Whale (G373).

I pulled out one of my Tri-Fold Notecards for today's project. This way my daughter will have a lot of room to do her thing.

Since I was creating with a water image, I decided to do some water coloring with my Faber-Castell Gelatos. I'm still learning my way around with water coloring, but I think the recipient will love it. For the ocean I water colored the blue, stamped the Water Swirl Border (H200) with White Pigment Ink, and cut the top for the swirls.

I added a 1/4" border of water colored paper along the bottom of each fold, and added the Just Floating (E648) sentiment on the first fold.

This card will actually be used as a Thank You card for some very special people. A picture of my daughter holding the gift they provided the funds for will be added to one of the panels of the card.

Here's a closer look at Smiling Whale (G373) ...
