Seagulls by the Sea

Happy Friday to everyone! There 's a new challenge over at Bloggers Challenge. This time, the challenge is to create a project that includes birds. I am currently away from home and after digging through my stash, find only these seagulls included in the Beyond the Sea plate by Artistic Outpost to be traveling with me. To create my tag, I began with white card stock. I stamped the light house image with Rich Cocoa Memento ink. The balance of the white card stock was distressed with Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen Distress Ink. I grunged up the edges of the card stock by ripping, tearing and folding portions of the edges. On scrap card stock, I stamped, trimmed and watercolored with various Distress Inks the shell gatherer, and the starfish, crab and shells. Each were then applied to the tag front with dimensionals over top of draped cheesecloth. The sentiment was stamped onto sea foam twill tape and mounted toward the bottom of the tag. Simple embellishments include vintage buttons, Copper Liquid Pearls, a scrap of burlap, and a binder clip by Ideology. I am also entering this tag at Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge is to show a tag. I hope each of you has a wonderful weekend. Thanks for dropping by! Yvonne

The washed out colours appeal greatly to me, the way that nature bleaches the colour from shells and buildings.
So beautiful.
