How does a bird become a whale?

Let me lose with a stamp and that is how a bird becomes a whale. I spied this idea over at Splitcoast Stampers. I saw a couple of cards so not sure who the clever original person is. If anyone does I sure would like to acknowledge them. I did make a couple of changes and made it my version.

The bird is from a Stampin Up set called 'Good Friends' which I have stamped here using Rose Red.

Tadah!! Now we have a whale. I stamped the whale up in SU Brocade Blue made sure not to ink the middle feather of the tail. Added a dot of black for his eye. For the water spout I inked up the birds tail with SU Bashful Blue and added kindy glitz. Now for the rest of the card. All the card and papers are from Stamping Up as this is another card front to offer for the swap on my retreat this coming weekend. Base card is Baja Breeze, then Pacific Point followed by Kiwi Kiss and then a torn bit of paper from the 'Good Morning Sunshine' set and more Pacific Point. I did the greeting on the computer.
