Colourful Whale

Time for another Tiddly Inks challenge and this week the theme is:

Colour Me!

So. Something bright and colourful. I printed off the whale which was a freebie ages ago when I first discovered Tiddly Inks and I've coloured it with Promarkers (plus glossy accents on the hearts - no card will ever be safe from glossy accents again!) I then decided to cut it out and add to an acetate card (had some lying around and was too lazy to put away!)

The 'waves' paper is from Dreams Come True by Funky Hand (and was also lying around so had to use it!) and I've attempted to cut waves into the paper, inked the edges and then slightly curled them. The fishy backing paper was a bargain 12x12 sheet from K and Co - Flat Whale and I bought it for 25p a while ago.

Bit of dotting around the edge of the bright paper with a blue gel pen and its complete! Not sure if the whale will stay attached as I've used glue and in my experience it tends to dry a bit too much over time....
