Winter Is Coming

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, and happy Monday. It's Sue here with my second piece for the current 'I Am Woman' challenge. This time I'm using some fabulous new stamps from the Lost Coast and Carmen's Veranda stores.

I started by making an 8x8 background with mixed media paper using Tim Holtz Distress Oxides in just about every colour that I own. I diped the paper one colour at a time and dried it each time to avoid mud.

Next I went through a cog stencil with Tea Dye to add a bit of contrast.

Then I stamped Steampunk Fly Girl with water as I wanted to remove some of the colour.

Time for more stenciling now, I've used an Andy Skinner face stencil and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide.

These are the stars of the show. They are new stamps called Flying Steampunk, and Steampunk Profile. They're amazing stamps and I shall be using them loads. I've coloured them with watercolour and sparkle pens.

Time for more Steampunkery now. I've die cut cogs and feathers etc on thick black card.

Then coated it all with various colours of metallic gilding waxes.

I LOVE this stamp and know it will get lots of use. It's a new Carmens Veranda clear stamp called unsurprisingly Winter Is Coming

Here it is, all done! I've stuck it to the inside cover of my new black journal.

And this is how they look together - I like it - a lot!

There's still loads of time for you to join in, so please link up for a chance to win Lost Coast $'s.

Have a very happy day, and thanks very much for looking xx
