Classic Beauty

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!

Happy Spring to you all from Laurie!  The current challenge here on the Lost Coast Designs Portal to Creativity has the theme "Pretty As A Picture".  So many ways to interpret this one, but to me it means I want to create something that reminds me of perhaps some art or sculpture I have seen in our travels.
For this sample, I have chosen the Calligraphy Lady stamp from Lost Coast Designs.  She has such a classic yet wistful air about her.  I stamped her onto white paper with black ink, then using various Copic Sketch markers, I added some color.  I also used a gold pen for some added accents.  I cut out my stamped image and layered it with a piece of gold paper and a torn edge piece of handmade paper.   I then chose a background piece that reminded me of vintage mosaic tile work and then layered that with another gold piece.

Such an elegant and thoughtful image!  Let's see your Pretty As A Picture creations!  Take inspiration from the picture and link up your makes for a chance to win Lost Coast dollars.
