31 Days of Halloween Day 6 - Beware!

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!

Ghoulish greetings from Laurie on Day 6 of our 31 Days of Halloween celebration. I hope you are joining in the fun as the Design Team has a new post every day for the whole month of October.  Hopefully you are inspired to create your own terrifying works of art!

This card was made with the Gargoyle stamp from Lost Coast Designs.  I simply stamped this onto a piece of Tim Holtz Halloween card stock and cut it out.  I took a very fine black pen and outlined the eyes, fangs and claws to give them a bit more prominence.

This background was really a fun project and easy to do.  I took a piece of plain 12" by 12" card stock and, using Gel medium, pieced it all over with scraps of vintage book paper.  Some are right side up but many are upside down or backwards.  I then stenciled it with several different stencils using shades of green, orange, and tan Distress Inks.  Once that was complete, using a zig zag stitch and black thread, I sewed around each of the individual paper pieces and all around the edges as well.

So you end up with an amazing collage that you can then cut up into different sizes for different projects you might have in mind.  Once this was done I selected a square section, cut it out, edged it with Distress Ink and placed my dragon right in the center.  The final touch was a "Beware" sticker in the lower lefthand corner.

So get to work and make some fabulous and freaky Halloween creations and enter them on the Portal for a chance to win some free stamps!!
