Flying Gulls

Hello friends.  I'm so glad you could stop by!

a perfect piece to put them on in my background box.

This is GORGEOUS Bonnie! I love those seagulls...think I need to check those dies out! And the background was perfect for them too...don't you just love when it all comes together so easily but looks like you spent hours on it?! And the sentiment couldn't be any more perfect either...lovely, lovely card my friend!! :0)

Gorgeous sky you watercolored (again!), Bonnie! I love how the colors blend. Adding the light green and grayish blue to the bottom is just fantastic! I bought these seagulls dies when I saw one of Karen's cards. I'm sure the dies will sell more after this post!! :-) Hideko xx

Simply Gor-juss! You did create a perfect background for the seagulls. It is very soothing and serene, and does that sentiment fit perfectly. TFS & Hugs (Love QACAS)

What a beautiful summer card. That background is so perfect with the seagulls -- it must have been hanging out in your stash just waiting for this perfect opportunity. Love the heartfelt sentiment.

I was also gifted these bird die cuts in a recent order but didn't know how to use them... and now I do. Thanks for showing!

Just love the background you created for those crisp white seagulls, Bonnie!!

The painting of that sky could not be more beautiful, Bonnie. The card may be easy but the idea is brilliant and beautifully executed! What a fabulous card and love the watercoloring on this.

Brenda said...

Wow Bonnie, that background is stunning! I love how the seagulls look against it. The colors you have in your sky are so pretty and the green looks like a line of trees in the distance. The darker blue looks like the ocean-yeah don't ask me how you can have tree's and an ocean in the same view, but that's what I see. lol It could be a lake maybe too close by the ocean?! We have seagulls in town and we are 4 hours away from the beach, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it! lol Love this one and it sure doesn't look QCAS! Hugs, Brenda

JoAnn said...

Loll said...

WOW! I was amazed by the impression !! Such a beautiful background! I adore that you left the white areas as if the image was blurry in the fog. What an amazing experience when you look at this miracle!

What a beautiful ocean sky, just perfect for those MB seagulls. That sentiment definitely sets the tone for this card. Stamping it in a caramel colour to match the card base gives a peaceful aura. Beautiful xx
