Drifting Seagull

Before summer is out of here soon, I'd like to share my seagull card. I'm proud of this, and I'll tell you why.


This bird die cut (Papertrey Ink's On The Farm dies) is actually a DUCK. I felt pretty clever! (wink)

I decided to make the duck into a seagull by using a light gray marker for wing color, and added him to some ocean waves (My Favorite Things Catch A Wave dies). I already had a "frame" pre-made (from die-cutting a rectangle out of a scrap piece of white cardstock), so I created a little scene IN & OUT of that frame.


The sandy scene at the bottom of the card was made with burlap, seashells from an OLD All Night Media rubber stamp set, and splatters of "sand" from Itty Bitty Backgrounds / Stampin' UP!


OH, and I did add some Sand sequins, too, from Pretty Pink Posh. They give it that little extra something, I think!

Ha! The duck looks just like a seagull! I love this. So clean and pretty and beachy. Love how you did the sand area with the burlap and the seashells and sequins. The sponging and Itty Bitty complete the scene perfectly.
