Anything Goes: Raven

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!

Greetings from Laurie here in sunny California to all you Lost Coasters!  I hope you are having a wonderful summer, wherever you are.

I have another entry for the "Anything Goes" challenge.  I tried out a lot of different ideas for this one, but I had this cool background I wanted to use, and the Raven With Tree Branches stamp from Lost Coast Designs won out. 

I made this background using some astrological tissue paper I found online - really I loved the patterns on these papers.  I took a page from a vintage book and using matte medium I adhered my tissue paper to the book page.  I let it dry well then cut it into a square shape, trying to incorporate as much of the design as I could.  I edged it with black ink then mounted it to a torn edged piece of black card stock.

I stamped my Raven with black StayzOn ink onto another page from a vintage book and cut it out.  
That was a bit of a challenge, but slow goes it and it came out perfectly.  Using a glue stick I pasted the raven as shown and gave him a tiny black rhinestone for an eye.  I then sprinkled around a few matte silver star sequins for a finishing touch.

This one gets me in the mood for Halloween - can't wait!!  Please join us here on the Portal and submit your "Anything Goes" projects by the 14th of July for a chance to win some awesome free stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!
