Stamp a Background Challenge--Create A Smile Stamps!

Hi friends!! Welcome to another challenge for Create A Smile Stamps!!  It's another fun one and one of my favourite things to do...stamp a background!!
I chose to use the Funky Feathers Stamp Set for my card today.  This was one of the first CAS sets I bought and love it till this day!!  To start, I cut down some white cardstock to 4.25 X 4.25 inches.  I took a ruler and drew a line corner to corner to find the centre.

I chose one of the stamps and placed it in one of the sections.  I stamped then rotated the cardstock 180 degrees so I got the identical placement on the opposite side.  You do have to remove and place the stamp for the opposite sides.

I flipped the stamp in the opposite direction and lined it up directly over the pencil line in between the stamped feathers. After picking the stamp up with the Misti door, I erased all the pencil lines and continued stamping in this manner.

This is what I ended up with.  I did stamp the feathers in the corners with an acrylic block to finish the pattern.  I should mention that the stamping was done on Bristol Smooth paper with Versaclair Ink (which is waterproof when dry).

I coloured the background with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens for a light watercolour look.  I stamped one of the cute seagulls from the Gull Gang set, also on Bristol and added a bit of grey ink to create some shadows and orange to the feet and beak.

I used foam tape to mount him to a zig zag circle die cut from vellum.  I also used foam tape to adhere the circle to create quite a bit of dimension. I wanted the seagull to stand out from the busy background.

I white heat embossed the sentiments onto black cardstock and trimmed each word out separately. And of course, used foam tape to adhere!  To add a little bit more colour, I die cut a few hearts and used a pink Tombow marker to add some colour.

I added the panel to a 4.25 X 4.25 inch card base.  I added the hearts with foam tape and also decided to add some clear droplets.  A bit of sparkle to the hearts and some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the feet and beak of the gull, finish this card!!

This would make a great Valentine but I think could be given any time of year!!

I hope you'll play along with us!!  I love seeing all the great entries!!
