I'm sliding in just under the wire with this sweet, simple card for the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch. I went with a mostly monochromatic color scheme on this ocean themed design.
Clear and Simple Stamps Seaside Sentiments 1 set. I stamped them in blue pigment ink, then carefully cut them out. The eyes were dotted with a bit of a gray Pico Embellisher for contrast. I used foam tape to adhere the whales to a light blue card base with a wavy edged panel along the bottom. The waves were made with two different sized circle punches. The set's "whale, hello there" sentiment was stamped above the whales in blue. I felt like the design was missing something, so I stamped a trio of teeny, tiny red hearts from the Taglines: Critters stamp set between the whales in contrasting red pigment ink. The little pops of red were just enough to finish the design!
