Fun card with seagulls for WSC538

Fun card with seagulls and a sunset for WSC538 at the MFT Blog.

Hello again! I’m back to share a fun card with seagulls and a sunset that I made for WSC538 at the MFT Blog.

This week’s sketch features a square format, although you can adapt it however you prefer. It’s been a while since I made a square card (if you don’t count the shadow boxes) so I did just that.

I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left and it suddenly reminded me of a sunset over the sea. To inkblend the sky, I used the following Premium Dye Inks: Moroccan Spice, Fire Coral, Candied Jam, Orange Zest, Butterscotch and Lemon Drop.

After I was done, I grabbed the Circle Extraordinaire Stencil to create the sun. For the water, which you can barely see, I chose Distress Oxide Inks in three tones: Faded Jeans, Broken China and Tumbled Glass.

I partially covered it with a strip of Heavyweight Translucent Vellum on which I heat embossed a sentiment from the hilarious Seaside Seagulls set. The birds are of course from the same set.

I stamped them with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink on Copic friendly markers and colored them with W5, W3, W1, W00, YR27, YR68 and YR61. Next, I fussy cut them and added some Glossy Accents to their beaks and open eye. I also die cut some vellum clouds with the Petite Clouds Die-namics, which I added according to the sketch.

When assembling my 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ (12cm x 12xm) card I thought that it looked too plain, so I added the cute shark from the BB Friends with Fins set and an enamel heart. I hope my card has inspired you to participate in WSC538. You could be the lucky winner of a $50 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique!
