Hey Gill-Friend!

Hey everyone! I thought that I would participate in this weeks Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge and I posted the inspiration photo below. I'm also trying my hand a trying out for their Sparks DT Call :) I decided to use the Surf and Turf set because I have been dying to ink it up :D

I both water coloured the seagull and paper pieced him with bits of scraps for the pop of orange in his beak to mimic the inspiration image. I notice that my designer papers are looking a little green in the photos but I assure you that they are lovely shades of turquoise in real life to match the blue monochromatic theme of the poster and I used 2 sentiments from the set as well in the upper corner of the card to touch on the typography aspect :)
