Pun Fun watercolor card

Here's an image from Pun Fun. The main image is stamped on Watercolor Paper with black StaZon Ink. It is colored with markers and an Aqua Painter. I used Brocade Blue marker along the inside edge of the whale, then a line of Bashful Blue inside the first line. My AquaPainter was used to blend the colors together and move the ink toward the center for a dark to lighter shading. Tempting turquoise was used for the water. The background on this card is called a faux handmade paper technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter. The background paper was paper pierced and the faux stitching done with a teal marker.

The whale circle was cut out and dry embossed using Nestabilities dies. A piece of grosgrain ribbon was the finishing touch.
