Out for a stroll

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!

Cathy here with a fun card for you today. A ballerina taking a fish out for a under the sea stroll.
Stamps Used:
Ballerina with fish
Stay weird
So I started off with I think are index cards. I got them in a grab bag at a thrift store. I thought they were photo paper but they were not. I used dylusions  sprays on them. I sprayed 3 pieces so I could pick out the one I liked best.
 I stamped Ballerina with fish on white cardstock and color in with Copic markers. The outfit was the same color purple as the hat but a little paint drop changed the color of it to teal.
Anyway cut out and set aside.

 Next add some seaweed to the bottom of the card. Start off with some green ink through a stencil.   At this point stamp Ballerina with fish on the card so you know where to place it. Move the stencil and use paint to give it depth and texture. Set aside to dry.
 Stamp 3 Fish on top of the card.

Add your cutout Ballerina with fish on top of the one you stamped on you card. (this is where I messed up) Take that stencil again and with a different paint color add some seaweed in front of  
Ballerina with fish. For me I had to repaint the outfit and then I added some glitter dots to make it stand out.
Lastly stamp Stay weird on black cardstock and emboss with white power and cut out and add to card. Edge whole card with black ink.
Join the fun here at the blog or over at the Facebook group. Can't wait to see what you came up with.


  1. Love Ballerina with a fish. Should let him out more. Your underwater scene is fabulous. Love the colours and also the teal dress with glitter dots. So cool. Hugz
