#185, Let us entertain you. Movie time.

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

 

Hi there, Riet here.
What a fun challenge.
You can participate with anything related to theater, film, dance, circus, etc.
I am a huge film fan and especially love the old Hitchcock films, they are fantastic.
You can see from this card what my favorite is.

Stamps I used:

I die cut the film strip and stamped parts of crows with black ink.
Stamped Alfred and masked him.
Stamped part of the Fourth Dimension to lay a floor.
Using a sponge with a very fine structure, 
I tapped the speckles on the white parts of the card with black ink.
And I made the scratches with the side of cardboard and black ink.
It should look like an old film reel.
I colored Alfred's suit and shadow with a gray pencil.
And with a letter die I made the word bird.
The card is matted with black cardstock.

Hope you will join in this fun challenge,
There is a price to be won.
Please read the rules first to avoide disapointment.
See you at the challenge.

#185 "Let us entertain you" challenge. Clowns

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi everybody, Riet here with 2 cards. 
Today 2 cards for the challenge,
because I think both clowns really belong together.
Let me explain to you how these cards are made.

 I used these stamps:
Card #1
Card #2

Furthermore I used:
Black stazon
Distress oxide.
Twisted citron,
Lucky clover,
Cracked pistaschio,
Musterd seed,
Wild honey,
Crackling campfire,
Barn door.
Derwent colorsoft pencils.

Take two pieces of paper measuring 20x20cm.
One for the orange background and one for the green.
We apply the colors with a brayer.
Starting with the light colors and working your way to the dark colors.
Be careful with the dark colors, apply small amounts.

With the sheet brush strokes, we now randomly stamp
 the orange tones on the green background.
And with the green tones on the orange background.
While we let this dry, we stamp the two clowns and color them.

When they ar colored you can cut them out.

Now choose a nice piece of background and cut it to 8.5cm x 8.5cm.

Now cut a piece of white cardstock measuring 12.5 x 12.5 cm.
And a double of 15 X 15cm.
We put the double card a side for a while.

Place the background on the white 12.5 x 12.5

Stamp the top left corner and bottom right corner,
 with the ledger stamp and the black stazon.
Repeat this with stamps from the Brush strokes sheet.
Use a stamping tool for this.

Now it looks like this.
Matt with a black cardstock with a 2mm edge.

Do the same with the second white card and glue them together.

Now use foam tape to stick the clowns on.

Now the card is ready.
The team would love to see your artwork in the LCD/CV challenge.
You can also participate with other brands of stamps.
You also have a chance to win new stamps, so join the challenge.

Let's Dance

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Good afternoon, Cathy here with a card for you.
Stamps Used:


I started with a pink cardstock base and stamped the splat from the Brush strokes in pink distress ink. I then took a butterfly from the Butterflies set and stamped that with pink distress oxide ink. Lastly, I stamped Corner swirl in drown distress oxide ink. That is how I made the background for my card. 
Next, I took a scrap pink dot pattern paper and added to the front of the card. I edged the whole card with the brown oxide ink. 
Then I stamped Thin dancer in the middle of the card and added saying and some washi tape and that is the card.

You can join the challenge here.
