Hugs and Fishes



Happy Friday!  I've been wanting to play with this image for some challenges all week. So glad I got it done in time.  This cute whale is from a Doodle Pantry set called Winter Eskimo. I used the outline whale image from the set and added some digital paper piecing to the underside of the whale.  Coloring was done with Copics.   After coloring the image, I fussy cut in out by hand and mounted it with dimensionals on top of the water background paper. The sentiment is also from the same set.  All papers are by Stampin Up.  I used various die cuts and punches to finish my design.  I'm happy with how this turned out; and think it will be a fun birthday card for one of the little guys in our family.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Milk Coffee Challenge -- Add Stripes
Pile It On #22 -- Primary Colors

Thanks for your visiting.  Have a great day!
