You're S'Whale


Today's card is for the colour challenge at the Paper Players.  I knew I wanted to use the whale from this Essentials by Ellen set but I didn't want to do my usual and pop him up on some wave dies so I went for this vent heart from Simon Says Stamp instead.  I'm not very good at using unusual colours for things (pretty sure there aren't any merlot coloured whales in the world) so it felt good to nudge myself a bit out of my comfort zone.  I ended up with two cards in the end but can't decide my favourite.  Which one do you like best?

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Not Quite Navy, Bravo Burgundy, Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from S'Whale) Essentials by Ellen
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Heart Vent, Holiday Shapes) Simon Says Stamp, (Flag, Speech bubble) My Favourite Things
Other:  (Nuvo Navy Blue, Oyster Grey & Ebony Black Crystal Drops) Tonic

Easy - it's your s'nautical heart, and the merlot whale!!
wait... maybe it's the wine-y s'whale?
Or I choose both!

Oh my gosh, these are too stinkin' cute! I LOVE the first one...and in the stamping world, we can merlot whales or purple narwhals or green starfish or anything we want!! It's adorable! Thanks for using my colors this week at the Paper Players!

Two great cards Jen and whilst the first one is my favourite, I love the sentiment in particular on the second one too! A fabulous CAS card that creatively uses our colours! Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!
