Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Hey, Gullfriend!


Hello, Hope your day is off to a good start. It’s Sketch Week at The Paper Players and Ann is our hostess. She has a fun and easy sketch to inspire us. You know I love this seagull stamp set from MFT so I hope you don’t mind seeing him once again. As you may or may not know, I am enthralled with making backgrounds these days and I have another warm weather scene for you. It is perfect beach weather and 80 here, and I think our winter is officially over. Boohoo! I just hope we don’t jump straight to the 90s any time soon.

Card Details: I used two patterned stencils and Oxide inks to make my background. The sun-ray and the wave stencil are from MFT. Along with a Circle stencil made from a piece of acetate to start things off. As I was writing this post and looking at my picture, I realized I never finished coloring my seagull. OOPS! Oh, well!

Come check out what the rest of the talented team did this week,

and I hope you will be inspired to join us!
