A Week of Pun Fun - Day 5

Need a Get Well... ahem... Get Whale Soon card? Pun Fun has got you covered! What I like best about this card is the color combination... It's Night of Navy, Tempting Turquoise, and a touch of textured Certainly Celery. Striking, isn't it?

I stamped the whale onto Whisper White cardstock using black StazOn ink. To color him in, I tried something new that worked rather well for me. Some of you may know that it is difficult to color in a large image like this with the blender pen and ink pad lids. Smaller areas are definitely much easier because you don't have a lot of time to "move" the color around with this method. So what I did here was I used my Stampin' Pastels to first color the whale a consistent shade of Brocade Blue. Then I pulled out my Blender Pen and the Brocade ink pad and gave him some depth along the edges! Voila! Problem solved! It worked beautifully! I colored the water with the Blender Pen and Tempting Turquoise (he must be in the Caribbean... *sigh*).

I sponged and wheeled the Tempting Turquoise layer with the Sweet Stars wheel and the same color ink. The Certainly Celery piece is pierced for interest, and the element in the lower corner is the Word Window punch with 3 Night of Navy eyelets. The card needed some more white, so I just tied on a scrap of Whisper White Taffeta ribbon, which mocks the whale's blow hole!

Only 2 more days left in my Week of Pun Fun! Have I convinced you to purchase it yet? Remember that on Saturday I will be telling you about an added bonus if you choose to purchase the set through me! Be sure to stay tuned!

I love your card! What a clever idea with the ribbon! My mind must be clouded by seasonal allergies because the first thing I thought of with the white ribbon was a tissue!
