Harbor Gulls


Isn't this a wonderful image? It's a new digital image from The Prairie Fairy called Harbor Gulls. I was so pleased at how it looked when colored with Copics. I thought the image was striking enough that it didn't need a lot of embellshments so I kept it pretty plain. Our challenge theme this week at Fairy Fun Friday is Embossing. I used both heat and dry embossing on this piece. Heat embossed was the map stamp on the frame and with clear ultra thick embossing powder around the parimeter of the base layer. Everything else is pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, just leave a comment and I will update this post with the response.

Products Used:
Paper: SU Natural and Not Quite Navy CS, Digital DP Coming Home pack from Little Scrap Garden (looks like it is no longer available - couldn't find a link)
Accessories: SU Word Window Punch, Top Note die and brass brads, Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles and Distressed Stripes embossing folders

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great day!

Blessings & hugs,
