Dr Frankenstein's Hawaiian Adventure

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!


Hello.  Gail here today to share one of Dr Frankenstein's lesser known creations bwahahhahaaahaahhaaa.
Did you know Dr Frankenstein loved Hawaii?  And pineapples!!  Very partial to pineapples.
I started with an oversized piece of bright yellow card and stamped Lost Coast Designs Bubbles Background with Spiced Marmalade distress ink.  Then I stamped Carmen's Veranda Organic Vegetables with black archival, covered it all with clear embossing powder and heated.  I did try stamping the bubbles and embossing, then stamping the sentiment and embossing, but the sentiment kinda melted into the bubbles in an ascetically unpleasing manner.  Embossing both at the same time was much more satisfactory.
To make a Frankenpineapple you need Carmen's Veranda Frankenstein and Carmen's Veranda Pineapple.  These are both large stamps and they fitted perfectly together.  I stamped the pineapple on card and then stamped and embossed Frankenstein on tissue paper.  I ripped around Frank and glued him in place on the stamped pineapple.  The ripped edge of the tissue paper blends seamlessly into the background, but the tissue paper may take colour differently from the background card.  Just saying bwahahaahaha.
I coloured my Frankenpineapple with Promarkers and distress inks.  A bit of galaxy marker for the eye-shadow with a touch of glitter and Frank is ready to hula.

Our current challenge is Say What???   We need to see a wordy sentiment on your stamped creation.  There are so many great sayings and quotes available, I am sure you have something suitable.   Link up your makes for a chance to win some Lost Coast dollars.
