The Thick And Thin Of It. Card by Dot

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 everyone,
I hope everyone is enjoying the weather where ever you live in the world
and managing to get a little crafting in.

Today I've got a card tutorial to share with you
using the Thick and Thin stamp.

I had so much fun playing with these colours from our challenge this fortnight.
There is just something about Lemon and Lime that screams out "Happy".

Here is how I've made this card ...

Step 1:  Stamp the image, Thick and Thin Men, onto your card.  Then stamp it onto some photo copy paper and cut it out to use as a mask.

Step 2:  Mask your image. Using a sponge, sweep out some distress oxides (Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron).

Step 3:  Use a circle stencil and use your sponge to add some circle detail with the Twisted Citron DO.  This helps to 'ground' the image to the edges and adds a little extra interest.

Step 4:  With your ATC Text Set 1 word stamp, randomly stamp some words.  Again, this helps ground the image and extend the image.  It also adds another layer.

Step 5:  I've added some black archival ink through another stencil to bring in another layer.  When you add layer upon layer it helps add more interest to your piece and creates more depth.

Step 6:  Randomly stamp the border of the Grunge Tree in a few spots around the edge.  The main image looks a little like Laurel and Hardy to me, so the grungy effect around the edges adds a that vintage and aged look to your card without too much thinking.

Step 7:  Finish off your card by mounting it onto matching lemon, lime and black cardstock.

These colours were so much fun to use.
We have them as our prompt for the challenge this fortnight.
