Hope Your Birthday Is A Splash! | GSD Share Your Design Challenge #17

Hi Everyone! Today I want to share with you a card I created from Gerda Steiner Designs! The stamp set is called  Heavy Friends. I am so excited to use this stamp, because I won challenge #15 which you can view HERE and HERE! The winner receives a $15.00 credit to use in her store.


Today I'm submitting this card for Challenge #17






Aren't they the cutest?
The base of the card is from MFT, and I also used their polka dot background stamp. The ink is from Brutus Monroe the gradient ink pad Sea Glass.

My ocean background I started by blending in some distress inks. I used Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Peacock Feathers. I really didn't like the way it turned out so I spritzed my craft mat with water and speared the ink over the panel. I added water drops to soak up some ink to give it a ocean feel. Then I sprayed white color shine from Heidi Swapp to give it the shine it needed.

I colored both whales with my copics using W2, W5, W8, 0, R85, and the copic multi-liner. I also used Festive Berries marker from Ranger for the blow hearts. 
After I used Glossy Accents on their eyes, blow hole, and the bubbles and hearts.
I then traced around the image with the Copic multi-liner.
The sentiment and whales were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Blank.

That completes my card for today, hope you enjoyed it!
Come play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Lori
