Sunday Stamps! #283

Hello, and happy Sunday! Today, I have a super fun card to share with you using the Waves of Inspiration and the Whale Done bundles. 

To create my card, I first stamped the beautiful wave from the Waves of Inspiration Bundle twice using Starry Sky ink onto Starry Sky cardstock. I then hand cut one complete one and a a partial image of the second one.   I just have to say: Isn't the color Starry Sky just so dang beautiful?!

After deciding how I wanted my waves to sit on my Basic White layer, I added Sweet Sorbet, Calypso Coral and Balmy Blue inks using the Blending Brushes to create my sunset/sunrise sky scene.

Next, I stamped the whale using Memento Black ink and colored him with the Light Starry Sky Stampin' Blend before punching him out with the Whale Builder Punch.  I also punched out a separate white "eye" and dotted it with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to make his eye pop.

To completed my sky scene and after stamping my sentiment, I added some clouds from the Waves of Inspiration and the Rainbow of Happiness Bundles.
My card follows the new color challenge at Sunday Stamps!

  1. Oh wow, Annette, what a perfect combo! I love seeing that fabulous whale in that perfect wave - gorgeous! And love that stunning soft background!

  2. I love the combo of Waves of Inspiration and Whale Done -- so fun! Beautiful pink in the background to offset the waves.
