Friday means a brand new color dare from the Design Team at Color My Heart!
This week we have a really pretty combo of colors: Crystal Blue, Peacock, Whisper with White Daisy. I love this combo but had to resist pulling out a flower stamp set. I seem to gravitate towards the flowers but need to push my boundaries a bit. LOL
So I ended up with the very cute Operation Smile stamp set called Animal Greetings. What's even better about the cuteness of this stamp set is that for every purchase of Animal Greetings, Close To My Heart will donate $7.00 to Operation Smile! Operation Smile provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates in children.
What a worthy cause!
Back to my card..... I used a blending pen to paint the sky and water using the ink in the top of the ink pads. The whale was colored with a marker. Some layers and embellishments later and it's done!
