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?
