Bloke in a Blue Bowler

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 Portal Peeps!!

Happy 4th of July

 Gail here today with some inspiration for Lost Coast Designs
I Spy...Something Beginning with B challenge.
And since it's the 4th I thought I'd go red, white and Blue.

 I have used Carmen's Veranda Charlie Chaplin, An Apple a Day sentiment and the gorgeous Lost Coast Designs Shooting Star background.
I started by stamping and embossing Charlie with black embossing powder and fussy cut him.  Then I stamped his hat and embossed it with blue glitter embossing powder.  This is a party afterall!!  With this stamp the top of his hat is chopped off but I simply extended and rounded it when I fussy cut it.  I was going to use the blue glitter powder on the top as well, but decided to go with the red instead.  Bling!!  Which is also a B word!  I added a bit of detail with a white gel pen and a couple of blue polka dot bows.

I stamped the Shooting Star background using blue die ink.  Isn't that lovely!!  Or maybe I should say Beautiful!!
I used Sizzix Deckle Edge die to cut the blue panel, stamped the sentiment and edged the panel with the blue dye ink and mounted everything on a red base card.
