Newton’s Nook – Hey, Gull Friend!

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog with an extra card to share! I feel like summer is winding down already so I’m clutching on with both hands enjoying all things beach, sun and fun!

For today’s fun card, I stamped the image from Gull Friends and colored it with my copics. Then I use the coordinating dies to cut them out. I too a white panel and inked up the Sunscape stencil with blending brushes and Lawn Fawn inks. When I removed the stencil I went over the whole panel with the light yellow ink to remove the harsh white and help the seagulls pop a little more.

Next, I took another white panel and die cut it with one of the Sea Borders dies for the top of my water layer. I used a blending brush to ink the top with a teal ink. Then I die cut both inked panels with the largest Framework die. I stamped my sentiment on the bottom right corner of the wave panel and lined the back of both panels with foam tape. I carefully lined up the two and adhered them together.

For a little extra contrast I took another panel, inked the edge up with seedless preserves distress oxide ink and splattered it with water. I adhered it to a white card base and then popped my scene panels in place. Then I used liquid adhesive to adhere my seagulls tucked underneath the edge of the water border.

For finishing touches on today’s card I used black glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents on the bird’s beaks and feet.

These birds color up really quick and I always enjoy ink blending so this card could be fun to mass produce and send out to a group of friends. Or just have on hand when you need to send some happy mail.
