{Technique Tuesday} Whale Hello, Santa

Hi, everyone! I have a fun holiday card using September's Wendell the Whale with four older sets. Imagine my delight when I discovered that the hat from Dear Santa was perfectly proportioned to fit on Wendell. Isn't he so cute as Santa? I was able to combine sentiments from both sets to create a unique one for the card.

The two big fish are from Olive the Octopus and the two little fish (stamped and coloured twice) are from Sassy Love Your Guts. I also loved that I was able to find multiple fish in different sizes from other sets. The gorgeous waves were made using the On the Waves Border Die.

All of the stamping was heat embossed, and the images and background were watercoloured and sponged with distress inks (colours linked below). To finish, I added clear round drops to the surface of the water.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is such a fun card! I love the pop of red from the Santa hat (oh, and the one little fish!) against the more muted colours of the background.

Whale done Emily! (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

It's always great when you have an idea and you find you have all of the elements to make it come together so well.
