Winnefred Whale

It seems like forever since I've posted but I finally have internet again.  It's a bit of a jumble because I am switching back and forth between two computers but at least it is working.  Today's card is from Whimsy Stamps latest digi release and this one is Winnefred Whale from Chrissy's digis, as is that perfectly matched sentiment.  The striped paper is from Paperloft and the smaller background piece is from a 6x6 pad called the Timepiece Collection by Bo Bunny.  I coloured the image with Copics and used a white pen for the water ripples.  I was quite happy with the clouds - I made a simple little template and although it isn't too complicated or detailed, I'm happy with them.  The sparkle on Winnefred is Glamour Dust by DecoArt... man, I love that stuff!  The buttons were a fab Ebay purchase... 1/2 pound of buttons and there's such a great selection that I think I'm going to have to have more!
