The Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary Challenge - Letter G

The letter "G" takes centre stage this week in the Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary Challenge and I have chosen the word gull for my entry.

The background for my postcard was brayered using Fresco paints. The lighthouse and gulls were stamped onto card, cut out and glued to the base card. I very lightly coloured the lighthouse and its surrounds before adding my computer generated dictionary definition.
