Bird Punch Gull on the Jetty

Well I am in awe of  Michelle Zindorf and her amazing brayer work and use of different Stampin' Up! tools. I found her thanks to Splitcoast Stampers. This is a CASE from Sue at splitcoaststampers.com, who has CASEd Michelle Zindorf's  great website http://zindorf.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2011/06/08/on-the-dock-tutorial-428/
It is amazing to me how many talented people are so willing to share their work for inspiration. Thanks to them...

My version is made using the following: The jetty posts are made using the great Early Espresso C'oredinations cardstock which distresses so easily. It is torn, crushed and folded and tied with string. The gull is made using the fabulous Bird Punch which is then trimmed a little to be a less plump bird and sponged with Crumb Cake ink, as is the wing. The beak is coloured with River Rock, and the legs hand drawn. I don't have a brayer so the sea is done by swiping the inkpad over the card,and the sky is sponged on. I used Bordering Blue which is a retired colour but one I still love, and the sky uses more of this and some Baja Breeze. The waves are highlighted with the White Signo Gel Pen. The scene is then mounted on Bordering Blue cardstock and Night of Navy. The birthday stamp is from the Tiny Tags set.
I love the Bird Punch, and i love using one tool in variety of ways.  Thanks for  looking, Liz
