A whale of a birthday!

Hi there. It's my birthday today and I've been celebrating by making cards! Again! My Husband has been busy cleaning the bathrooms - not a bad pressie:)

I decided to combine 2 of my favourite Lesia Zgharda stamps to make a masculine card, because it's my Nephew's birthday in a few days. 
I coloured the images with Zig Markers and an Aquabrush. It isn't watercolour paper, so I didn't use much water.  The sentiment is from The Ton Stamps.

I'm sharing my card at the following challenges and in a Design Team call at Perfectly CAS.

Here is another card I made for my daughter to give her boyfriend. 

I sponged the background with Distress Inks & Distress Oxides, using a stencil for the 'sea'. The dies are from Penny Black . Sorry I've forgotten which stamp I used. 

I'm sharing this card at the following:-
