A Birthday Gondola Ride card (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi crafty friends,

I had a lot of fun creating this card. I fussy cut The Paper Shelter images out and then used my oxide inks to create the background. This was a bit of an experiment with my embossing ink pen to scribble lines then add some white embossing powder to create a wave effect. I accidentally smudged the funny little seagulls I doodled on, I think they were a mistake to start with but, I can usually find a way to cover errors up but there was nothing I could do to fix this. So we'll say the big seagull is travelling so fast he's leaving a trail lol.
