If I Only Had A Heart...

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!

Hi again from Laurie with some fun for the current challenge here on the Portal:  Follow the Yellow Brick Road.  There are some great Oz themed stamps at both Lost Coast Designs and on Carmen's Veranda, which is where the stamp on my card is from.  I love the Tin Man so he is featured here 
Oz Tinman along with your other favorite Oz characters.

I wanted to create a background that looked like a yellow brick road, so I took some yellow and white papers and cut them into little "brick " shapes and placed them alternately on top of a black background.  I trimmed up the edges to match my white card base and edged it with black ink.

I stamped my Tin Man with black Staz-on ink onto some silver foil card stock and cut him
out.  I punched a small red heart and attached that to his chest.

I found a great Tin Man quote on the internet and printed that out, edged it with black marker, and attached it to the upper left corner; then my Tin Man to the right side and all atop the white card base.

Such a great way to commemorate one of the favorite films of all time!  So let's see what you can make that is Oz-inspired for this current challenge, and don't forget to follow the yellow brick road!!
