Whale delighting in "Groovy Skies"

This is my first ever splitcoaststampers colour challenge. (The challenge was groovy skies: soft sky & groovy guava). Love these colours together! I do have to admit that I cheated ;-) by adding a hint of black behind the image and some cool caribbean for the sea.

DETAILS: I used white craft ink first to do the mist and then stamped the critters. (I was worried about the show through, but I guess it's okay. I painted the "shadows" on the "mist" with the not quite navy wash.(Man, "Shadows on the Mist" sounds like the title of a really BAD book!).I'm hooked on colour challenges now. (Gotta break free of the blues!) Thanks "emilymomto3boys" for putting them out there.

Have a great day,
