Splish Splash


CAS-ual Fridays is making the most of the end of summer with this week's challenge which is to create a project featuring something you might see in or at the ocean.  This little gull from the Paper Smooches Surf and Turf set looks so lonely to me - perhaps he's thinking of his long lost gull-friend...  Sorry.  Couldn't resist!  :D  Have a wonderful day!

Supplies Used
Cardstock: (White) Bazzill, (So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Bird & pilings from Surf & Turf, Sentiment from Word Up) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

Die:  (Half & Half Dies) PTI
Gems:  (Tangerine  assortments) Doodlebug

Copics:  YR04 & C-1

Wave bye-bye to summer, Jen! This is so adorable. Especially love how you used the die shape and the gems (you're a gem, too).
