Mechanical Horse

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!

You still have a few days left to enter this challenge "Anything Goes".  It's a great chance to make whatever your heart desires!!  

I made a small card for this one using the Steampunk Pony stamp from Lost Coast Designs.  I love anything steampunk so it was fun to have a chance to use some of my Lost Coast steampunk stamps.

I created a background by tearing pieces of vintage paper from old books, ledgers, etc. and created a collage by using Modge Podge to glue them to some heavy paper. Once that was complete, I used a variety of stencils and inks and stenciled over the page.  I stamped my pony with black ink onto a section of my page and using a rough edged ruler, tore it out.  I layered it with black then rust colored card stock.  Using brads, I attached two brass wheels to the wheels of the horse.  I then took a small black elastic band and attached it at one end to the back wheel and at the other end to a larger brad.  
This is such a cool stamp and I love how the wheels and brads give it a real steampunk look.

Let's see what you can create!!  Join the challenge for a chance to win some free stamps!

  1. This pony is such a fun image. Love how you stamped it on that busy background and the metal embelies are fab. Hugz
