Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!!  Lori here today with the newly released exclusive Cheapo Dies Seagull die.

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and inked the top using a cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass distress ink.  For the bottom of the card I took Salty Ocean distress oxide and rubbed that onto the paper with a blending tool. I added some Peeled Paint distress oxide on top of that and then I spritzed it with water and dried the paper with my heat gun.  I took the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Seagull and cut it out twice, once with white paper and once with brown.  I in-laid the brown pieces so that the pilings looked real and then I added the seagull on top.  I used Copic markers to color the seagull. I took some black ink and stamped the sentiment onto the Neenah paper and then added that to the white card base.

Be sure to stop back often to see more creative ways to use these wonderful dies!

Thanks for stopping by!
