CI#114 Whale Done - the ocean blues #useyourstash

It has been a while since I played with the Whale Done set- I love all the new products but I feel guilty sometimes about all the sets which get left behind from the Annual Catalogue, so I was happy to pull this one out.

The inspiration Picture this week is of Mooloolaba Beach which has a strong family connection for me as my Mum and Dad bought a unit there in the mid 80's and it has been a favourite family holiday destination for many many years.
I think you can go whale watching from Mooloolaba , although I live further north on the Qld coast and they are perhaps easier to see here.
My ocean depths was a mix of sponging both Balmy Blue and Coastal Cabana onto some shimmer cardstock, and my big blue whale has been clear embossed over the ink for some added depth, although it doesn't show well in the photo.

I have used a few old and new products to complete my project but I think that will be my goal for 2022, #useyourstash. 
I do love the new "Pebbles Enamel Shapes" embellishments and I have used quite a few on my seabed. These are from the new January -June Mini Catalogue.
There's such a great whimsical feel about the Whale Done stampset


Sadly the embossing folder has retired, as has the ribbon and twine, but they added a little something extra to my ocean card, so I was happy to utilise them,
