Whale of a Time for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my new email follower :D

 I thought I'd show you how I made my whale card with Leonie's fab pattern stamps.
First I stamped the swirls from the Tangled Tails set onto a post-it to make a mask.
Little tip: cut through 3 or 4 post-its at once to save on cutting time

I stamped the swirls several times onto some blue Craft Asylum paper, masking as I went

I cut along the top of the waves ready to slot my whale into (I repeated this a couple of times elsewhere in the middle of the sea)

For my whales I started with the 'S' shape (also from Tangled Tails)
The pencil outline is where I was going to cut.

To make the 'tail' more realistic I drew a little curl on the end with a black fineliner pen.

 I made 3 of these and slotted them into place in the sea. The sentiment was done on my computer and I matted the whole thing on another Craft Asylum paper before mounting onto a 5x7 white card blank. The charm and twine etc. are from my stash.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
