I started my cards by stamping the whale with Black Memento Ink. I then restamped the image with VersaMark ink and added clear embossing powder.  Next, I watercolored the whales. I used both Zig Clean Color Real Brush WaterColor Pens and Altenew Watercolor Pans to color the whales.

Once everything was colored I began working on my cards. I started by using Distress Oxide Ink (Faded Jeans) and the Waves Stencil from Simon Says Stamp. I then went over my inked area with Broken China ink and spritzed my background with water. 

To finish my card, I stamped my sentiment on a banner and attached everything to my card front with foam adhesive.

On my next card, I used the Patterned Paper from Bella Blvd, Secrets of the Sea paper line. I cut a 3 inch strip and mounted it on the left side of my card. I then cut out a few coordinating banners and added my sentiment and my watercolored whale to my card front.

I hope you get a chance to stop by Technique Tuesday website and see their New Release!
