One Layer with a Flourish...

I've made my One Layer Wednesday card (on Thursday!)...I was making some thank you cards with Moby, the whale stamp from A muse, and piercing the spout on top of his head when I suddenly remembered Susan's challenge for the week to use a flourish on a OLC.  I pulled out one of my first stamps sets, a flourish set from Autumn Leaves, and found the perfect-although-kind-of-large flourish for Moby.


Supplies:

Paper:  Stamping Bella
Ink:  palette hybrid noir
Stamps:  A muse (moby, thanks), Autumn Leaves, PTI (piece of cake)
Accessories:  A muse twinkle stickers, paper piercer, copics, corner chomper

I coloured Moby with copics and added some bling to his spout.  Because the left side of the card seemed kind of empty, and because Moby looked like he was flying in the air rather than floating in water, I added a few lines of piercing to ground him in a very subtle way.  I think it works!

Gorgeous, I know I'm a whale person but despite my bias this is adorable. I love the way you've grounded the whale with the piercing. A really cool OLW card. Hev:)
