CAS227 challenge covered here. Seagull up on PopDots. Background watercolour 'swooshing' with Baby Wipe and finger, chalk rubbing with a few extra dots and spots of watercolour crayons and white gel pen (waves). Silhouette dog stamp (AlexStamping) in Black Versafine and fishing pair digi. I like the effect of the "off the page" seagull.

Oh my goodness this is gorgeous! Love the soft background you created and the silhouette scene is perfect for this card. And the off the page seagull knocks this one out of the ballpark! TFS this amazing creation!

This is a wonderful interpretation, of a day on the beach. This is a very typical sight. Beautiful coloring, right down to the shadowing on the sand. Love those images. I can almost hear the calling of the gull's, and the rolling waves. I love the popped-up seagull, slightly off the page. I could go ,on, and on. I just love everything about this beautiful card. tfs.

Oh this really is the perfect Summer scene and I love your muted tones on this!! Your seagull does looks fabulous off the side of the card!! My holiday place is right by the beach and this is a scene we see regularly with a dad and his children fishing!!

This is just a gorgeus card! My husban, dad, and brother in law all enjoy fishing at the beach. Now my son is kind of getting in to it. This makes me think of him and my dad. Love how you created your whole scene! The shadows behind the people and dog and all the color is just perfect. Lovin' the popped up seagull. That really brings it all together.
