Introducing Throwback Tuesday with Whale of a time

Hello lovely peeps

I've got another unblogged card for you today, which was only posted in a group on Facebook last year. As I still have several old cards to show you I thought I'd make a regular thing of it and have

Throwback Tuesdays

 When I've eventually blogged all of my old cards I plan on using Throwback Tuesday to show you new cards that I make with old stamps. I've got dozens of old stamps in my stash, the majority of which are unused, so it will give me a good excuse to get them out and have a play.

So my first official 'Throwback Tuesday' card is a simple one. The papers, image and sentiment are all from the Starfish and Sandcastles VIP XXL Collection at Polkadoodles.

I printed the whale onto two different papers and cut one of them out to paper piece on top of the other. I coloured in the bottom of the whale with a dark grey Promarker.

The sentiment was cut with a circle die and layered on a slightly larger circle which I coloured with a red Promarker. For a bit of texture I added Fluffy Stuff where the water splashes are and heated it (it will still puff up if you leave it overnight to dry but I'm impatient, lol)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:- 
Pink and Main Challenge #23 Red, white and blue
Angie's Digital Stamps #11 Anything Goes + twist: Red, White and/or Blue
Dragonfly Journeys #95 Red, White, Blue

Thanks for stopping by,
