Doodle Flowers

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!

Happy New Year - Laurie here.  We start the new year off with a fun Anything Goes theme
for our first challenge.  This leaves you with lots and lots of possibilities for all kinds of projects and you get to make your own theme!

I made a series of ATC cards using the Sketchy Cone Flower and the Sketchy Lily Flower stamps, both to be found in the new section of the Lost Coast Designs rubber stamp catalogue.

I stamped my flowers onto some scraps of paper I had on hand that I had made using my Gelli Plate and some acrylic paints.  I chose red, orange, blue and yellow/green.  I used Staz On black ink for the stamping, then cut out the flower portion of each one.  

Next I stamped four different pieces of scrapbook paper with four of the ATC background stamps that can be found in the ATC section of Lost Coast Designs:  ATC Misc. 6 Set and the ATC Text Set 1 and cut them to fit the front of a standard ATC.  I edged each with black ink, then stamped the Cone and Lily flowers onto each background.  I then pasted my cut out flowers onto each of the four ATC cards.

The final step was to stamp Clear Stamp phrases with black ink onto white paper, cut out, and affix atop each flower as shown.  
And there you have four colorful and fun ATCs that you can use for swapping or gifting.
Please join our first challenge of 2019 and show us what fun stamped creations you can make!

  1. Love these. The stamping on the patterned papers adds lovely detail and the sketchy flowers are so pretty.
