Paper Smooches August Release #2 - Flower Frame Dies

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to a new post with Paper Smooche's  latest release! I just love everything about it! For this post I have played with the super fun Wavy Wishes and Flower Frame Dies to create a sweet little shaker card:   




I started out by making a cardbase from white cardstock and then cut a square panel through both cardstock and a piece of foam. I Cut my flower frame and then cut my cirklewindow through the center of my cardstock and foam making sure it was a little larger than the inside of the frame.
I then cut a pice of blue cardstock to which I stamped my sentiment and adhered that to the cardbase befor adding my seqinces and adhering my window panel. 
When all that was done I stamped and colored the cute birds from Wavy Wishes cut some leaves from 3D Cross die and adhered them together with the Flower Frame Dies to the front.

Sunday Watercolors: Seagulls





While on Åstol I was inspired to paint seagulls - a bird I love and think is beautiful - but they can find quite scary too... Anyway I started out with the color one but was disappointed with it - too strict and too boring so I used the same sketch and created another version (the top one) which I like better.

I use Winsor Newtons Artists' watercolors and Daniel Smith's extra fine watercolors. The paper I use is 140lb 300 grams Arches rough or fine.
