Gothic Unicorn Card

Hello all I'm here to share a card I made for Lost Coast Designs Challenge stamped background.
I started out with a piece of black cardstock and Grunge Diamond Background. I used Versafine  ink and white embossing power and made the background. I did add sparkle to the feathers and the horn.

Next I took Teri Unicorn and stamped it with black in on a white piece of cardstock. Then I colored it with Copic markers. Then I tore around the colored Teri Unicorn image. Then I added to the embossed piece that I did earlier. Then I added to a white card base.

You can still enter this challenge here. I hope you will play along.

Kitty behind the curtain

Hello all in blog land. I'm here with a card I made for Lost Coast Designs challenge. Stamped backgrounds is what it is called. You can check out some of the backgrounds here or here for your ATCs or here for some Carmen's Verandas backgrounds.

I started off with some watercolor paper and I took my Nuance powers and made them into a watercolor and painted a "sky"  background.  I set that aside to dry and I worked on the cat image. It is  Curtain Cat from KatzelKraft. Lost Coast Designs is carrying some.

I had it already stamped out and colored on a different piece of cardstock. I had stamped a saying and I smudged the ink on it so I couldn't use it for what I wanted but I didn't want to throw the card away. We all know what I'm talking about right.
Next I cut out the curtain cat and edged it with black marker so you don't see the white edge from cutting out. Added glossy accents to eyes because they need to be glossy. Set that aside to dry and then I went back to the watercolor sky.



So I grabbed my Flying Birds background stamp and stamped it on my watercolor sky background.
Then I adhered the curtain cat to the side of the card.   

The I took a circle and painted it some of the Nuance powers to make a moon and attached to the top of the card.
All put together. I hope to see your creation with stamped backgrounds.

You can join the fun here. You can also join over on our Facebook group.

Fly Card

Hello all. Over at the Lost Coast Portal the challenge is Pretty as a picture.

What catches your eye?  The colors, the shapes, the nest, the eggs?
What caught my eye was the nest and the red and white color.
Frist I stamped the nest  and colored it with different brown Copic markers.
It felt like I was playing pick-up sticks with coloring.  Next I colored the leaves with different colors.
 Then I fussy cut it out and added to a red piece of cardstock and then added that to white card base.

Then I stamped the word Fly and added the to some black cardstock then added to the card.
I hope you come and play in the Pretty as a picture challenge.

Black, White and 1 color

Hello all in blog land. I'm here with Blank Page Muse challenge for this month. What is the challenge you might ask? Well it is Black, White and one color.
 I picked purple for my one color. My favorite color.

 I started off with white cardstock to make the card base. Then I stamped Vintage Paper Pattern Distressed stamp randomly over the card front with black ink. Next I took a border stamp from Words by Jane Sentiments & Silhouette Images and stamped that randomly over the card front also with black ink. I set that aside so I work on the center part of the card.

I took a piece of scrap piece of watercolor paper and a purple watercolor crayon a colored the whole thing. Then I stamped vintage paper pattern distressed stamp on the edge of it with black ink. Next I stamped mannequin dress form with Versmark ink and embossed it with white embossing power. Then I layered it on black cardstock.
 Then I added it to the front of the card.

 As I was looking at it I felt it still needed something. So I had a keyhole that I made from a mold and I painted black.

Here is my card again to see it all together.
Please come join us over at Blank Page Muse here

Hello I'm here with a Lost Coast Designs Challenge. Pretty as a Picture is what it is called. Over at the Portal is where it is at. Photo Inspiration - be inspired by the colors, the subject, the shapes, just tell us what inspired your project
 I have made a ATC for this challenge.  What I inspired me in making this ATC is the color, the window frame and the twigs from the nest.
I took Distress Oxide ink in red and brown tones and I did the smooshing technique on my craft mat with them. Next I took  ATC Leaf Column Shrine and stamped it in black ink. Next I stamped  Small Tree Crown in the center of it. last I colored the crown with brown Copic markers and some green for the leafs on the crown.
