My Little Seagull

I bought Simply Homemade magazine this month just to get the free Emma Ball stamps and paper collection, and was then waiting for a challenge theme to suit the images.

Well, suddenly there are several !!

The first is CD Sunday - Seaside Treasures.

Secondly, Artful Times - Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

Thirdly, Emergency Crafters - Summer Sun.

I created the background using various digikits on Serif CraftArtist (my new love - could spend hours playing and trying to learn new things). Everything else is the gorgeous Emma Ball designs - stamps, papers and embellishments. I coloured the stamped images with Copic marker pens - E31, B60, BV23, BV29, Y38, YR16, E53, E50.

A simple, but bright and cheery, summer birthday card.

BTW - hope you love my little seagull as much as I do?!

  8. Such a bright colourful card and I love the seagull. We have a baby one at work that has just hatched out on the flat roof. We have adopted him and are now officially aunties to Sidney Seagull. He seems to get bigger every day so his mummy is obviously taking good care of him.
