Hello from the sea! It’s time for another new set by Paperie Ink. This time we have a flock of fun on this 5″ X 7″ card. I’m using the new set called, Mine, Mine Mine. There are so many cute seagulls in this set along with the trunk, sea accessories and a few phrases, too. I believe I used all of the seagull images on this 5″ X 7″ card. In fact, two were duplicated. They are so adorable, I had to use them all!
To make this card, I started by applying a light wash on watercolor paper. Shades of blue with a little green/tan coloring at the bottom set the stage for this flock. I always like to splatter a little color to make it look imperfect. I used a gold and a dark teal for the splotches. I stamped, colored, and fussy cut the seagulls. I used the following colors:
- Seagulls: C3, C1, Y38, YR07
- Trunks in E47, E44, E43, E50
- Bobbers in R489, R46, R29, R14, C3, C1
I also applied more Copic browns to the base to make it more “sandy” like.
I noticed that one of the seagulls is in a funny position and it reminded me of skydiving, something my 18-year old daughter just signed up to do this summer. Yikes! Anyway, I had to hand draw this simple parachute for the one with his knees bent. It looks like he is ready to land! This is simple to draw. Once I positioned the seagull and the parachute, I drew lines with a black fine-tip marker and ruler and then attached the images permanently with dimensional foam tabs. Easy peasy! This card would be cute for family or a friends! Just add the appropriate phrase for the event inside (birthday, get-together invite, anniversary, etc.)
