The Way to Oz

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 with a card using the wonderful Carmen's Veranda Oz Scarecrow and I also had some fun with shaving foam and reinkers.  Read down for news on two chances to win Lost Coast Designs/Carmen's Veranda stamps......

 Here he is, having a Eureka! moment!!

 If you haven't tried the shaving foam technique to colour some backgrounds I urge you to give it a go.  Basically squirt a load of shaving foam onto a paper plate, add some colour, I used reinkers, swirl it around with a cocktail stick, place your card into it, scrap off the foam and go Oooooh!!  Pretty!!!!!  It also makes everything smell quite nice as well!  I picked this background cos I thought it looked stormy. 

I cut the background with a stitch die and mounted on a black card base.  I stamped the Scarecrow on white card, embossed, coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut.  I made the sign using a different piece of my shaving foam backgrounds, letters from Lost Coast Designs License Plate Alphabet and the broomstick from the Small Witch stamp.  I left the arm attached and coloured it Wicked Witch of the West colours.......  So maybe he's pointing at a squished witch rather that the sign to OZ??!!

Thanks for dropping by.  There is still time to join the Follow the Yellow Brick Road challenge for a chance to win Lost Coast Designs/Carmen's Veranda stamps.

Lost Coast Designs is also sponsoring the Allsorts challenge again this week where the theme is Autumn Glory and you have another chance to win a gift voucher.  Do hop over and check out the challenge and join the fun.  See you there........
