a whale of a card

hello there, friends!

today i have a card to share that's also on the newton's nook blog

i had a ton of fun making this card, mostly because it involved watercoloring, and i'm totally into that right now! ha ha! 

so here it is:

love it! i used the sweet whale image from sea-son's greetings (not just for christmas cards, people!) and popped him up over that super fun 'ocean'! :) all of the images were watercolored and fussy cut over the watercolored 'ocean'! 

i used three different blue-y shades for the ocean, i have not yet mastered 'shading' with watercolors yet! but i like the ocean, nonetheless! :) 

for the sentiment, i just sewed on some tiny type letters (another of my OBSESSIONS! lol!), and then i added a strip of washi to the side of the card, popping up the whole watercolor panel! 

so fun!
don't forget about the current inky paws challenge over on the newton's nook blog! you can find it here, and guess what? there's a NEW and FREE digitial image you can use, too!


  1. This is super adorable!! Love the water coloring and the type letters are just AWESOME! Love type fonts too :)
