Lawnscaping One Layer Challenge

This morning I made my card for the Lawnscaping Challenge.

They ask you to make a one layer card. For me they are the most complicated cards to make, cause if you do something wrong (like an accidental thumb print), you can't use anything to cover it. So I should say that this card took me a couple of tries.
There is a lot of masking done on this card, but I should start explaining how I did the whales. I tried reverse stamping, but I didn't like that the lines weren't sharp enough, so I stamped a whale, scanned it with my computer and used photoshop to mirror the image. Then I printed this, and stamped the original whale on the other side, over the masked flower.
I think it sounds more complicated than it actually was. Then I masked the whales and the place for the sentiment, and stamp the hearts from Teeny Tiny Backdrops over the entire front of the card using Broken china and Chipped sapphire.
I created the sentiment with Harold's ABCs and stamped it with Fired Brick.
Then I colored the whales and the flower with Promarkers, and to finish it, I added some glossy accents and used distress inks on the edges of the card.

Hope you liked it and thank you for stopping by!!
