The Colour of Brains

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 a little inspiration for the current challenge Stamped BackgroundLost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda have some amazing, beautiful and very reasonably priced background stamps, so this is a no brainer.  Now there's a theme to expand upon.......
I used the gorgeous Lost Coast Designs Pondscum background with Carmen's Veranda Oz Scarecrow and Tidy Minds sentiment.  
I stamped and embossed Pondscum Background with black powder on white card.  I'm not sure this picture does it justice.  It's a very detailed and complex stamp.  Do use a fine, detailed embossing powder if you are going to heat emboss.  I used Stampendous Fine Black here.  
Then I stamped and embossed the Tidy Minds sentiment and Oz Scarecrow, both available from Carmen's Veranda.  I cut the sentiment panel with Sizzix Deckle Edge die and fussy cut the scarecrow.  I quite liked it black and white, but then decided to add some colour.
I thought green, for spring, vaguely entertained red, for brains, and then decided yellow, for happy, and maybe also brains if you are a scarecrow!!!
Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to link up your makes using stamping in the background for a chance to win Lost Coast dollars!!!


  1. I find it difficult to come up with humoristic cards but you do this so well Gail!

    1. Thanks. These sentiments make it easy, and they go well with so many different images. Hugz
