The Challenge 64-Whale Done

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Mojo Monday sketch! 

The Challenge is back with a new challenge!  Next up in our rotation is a color challenge.  This week we're featuring the combination of navy, lime, blue, and gray.

Whale Done card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery ElleI used the colors along with Avery Elle's Whale Hello set to make a simple scene.  One of the set's whales is my focal image. I colored it with Copic markers, then cut it out with the matching die.  The image was adhered to a blue dot embossed card front over a pair of navy blue die cut waves.  The edges of the waves were rubbed with white pigment ink to highlight the edges.  I filled in the empty space on the cardfront with a pair of die cut clouds, then added the "whale done" sentiment on a narrow lime green strip set across the clouds.

Check out what the rest of the talented team at The Challenge has created based on this week's color combination.  Here's where to find them:
