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 morning!
We are now halfway through April and it's time for our mid-month inspiration.  Our designers have been busy creating projects to inspire you to create your own work of art featuring your favorite background technique.



Our LCDesigners have been working hard to bring you more fabulous inspirations. ENJOY!

MARILYN created this Dreamcatcher ATC using heated soft matte gel for the background.  she used the Small Dreamweaver stamp along with the Corner Swirl stamp.
LAURIE created Farmer's Party card using paper collage as her background technique.  She used the American Gothic Party stamp.
SUE created her Happy Place card using blown alcohol inks for her background technique.  The stamps she used are Showgirls and CV Happy Place.
PAULA created her Doodle Bird card using activated distress oxide inks on shadow stamp using ATC White Magpie, the rectangular stamp from Shadow Frames set, and Old Typewriter Alphabet stamps.
And last but not least, CATHY created her Party Mona card using paints and a straw to create the background along with the Flying Mona stamp.

As you can see, the team has been busy creating loads of inspiration for you.  Now it's your turn; are you up for the challenge?  We can't wait to see your projects!
