Hey there! It’s Jen waving hello to you with the hot new May release. I’ve had so much fun with the Make Waves SVGs. As soon as I saw the set, I couldn’t wait to cut out that cute seagull and have him bobbing on the waves. And after I cut out the seagull and waves, I noticed I had a fabulous stencil left over:
Well, I was also excited to use the Fun in the Sun Digi and I went ahead and spread some Paper Glaze through my freshly cut stencil. That fun wavy background was just right for this cool cat to float and enjoy her margarita. I guess ocean scenes always get me thinking of portholes which put me in the mood for some round cards. I decided to make this into a get well card with one of my favorite retired TCP sentiments.
For my gull card, instead of a porthole, I used the life preserver to frame the seagull. I cut each piece with my Brother ScanNCut out of Neenah Solar White and sponged on all the colors with Distress Oxide, shading each piece a bit just by using the brush that I usually use for black or gray ink. I popped up just the top of the bird and let the bottom rest more in the water. And of course, I needed to add some glitter to the waves.
Frankly, I love to make seagull cards, because I can use one of my favorite birthday sentiments. “29 again? How gull-ible do you think I am?” I’ve made the inside sentiment using my very own handwritten font and I am sharing the file on my blog if you are interested.
