Whimsy Stamps: Whale

I'm very excited to show you my Whale card today!

Followed a sketch by Mojo Monday. Papers by Best Creation.

This adorable whale is a digi by Crissy for Whimsy Stamps. I was stumped for coloring ideas. I loved how sherribarron worked her whale and used that for inspiration. I used Loew-Cornell pencils and started with a light layer of grey. Then, I added bits of blue here and there for shading and dimension.

Topped with glossy accents and a bit of stickles on the water.

I punched dots from the orange paper, foam dotted and topped with glossy accents. Added stick pins and brads.

This digi sentiment is also by Crissy. The coloring samples at Whimsy Stamps are excellent, too! The ribbon is from Ms, the xmas selection from 2010. I tell you what, they had the best ribbon last holiday season and so much of it is versatile! I will be a lot less modest this coming season and just buy with reckless abandon :)

Thanks for stopping by!
