Hello, gullfriend

Hello Everyone,

I am popping in today with a last minute card for the current MFT Sketch Challenge #387.


I started with stamping an colouring the funny seagulls from the MFT Seaside seagulls set using Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out, adorned them with funny google eyes and added glossy accent to their beaks.


For the background I masked off 3 stripes on Bristol Smooth paper using painter’s tape. I applied Distress inks (Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China). Then I taped down the MFT Abstract stencil and went back with the same inks. Before removing the stencil I sprayed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.


When my panel was all dry I heat embossed in white 3 of the sentiments form the same stamp set.


Finally I used 3D foam squares to mount the seagulls and added some clouds too with liquid glue.


I will also link this up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge All things bright and beautiful and Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you like this card and will join me next time too for more fun projects.

See you,
