Raven Queen Magic

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!

Hello everyone,
I am honored and thrilled to be asked to join Lost Coast Designs
as a Guest Designer this month.

This month the theme is
"Myth and Magic"

My card uses Raven Queen to add the magical
inspiration for this challenge.

This is how this card was made ...

To begin with the Raven Queen has been stamped twice.
The head dress was cut out from one of these.
The other image was covered with masking fluid
so that an inked background could be added.
What a stunning image Raven Queen is!

Once the masking fluid was completely dry Distress Inks were blended over the background. .
A stencil was then spritzed with water and some placed onto the ink.
After you blot this you are left with a lovely ghosting impression
from the stencil.
Another layer of stenciling was added by blending
a darker blue ink through the stencil.

A little background stamping was added using
ATC Grunge Set and Long Swirl.
This was used to create a border around the card.

Raven Queen, and the head dress, were coloured with water colours
and pencils. To add a little extra femininity there have been beads of
liquid pearls placed on the head dress and around the outside of the image.

To finish the card, part of the words from Carmen's Veranda
"Never Too Late" were added.
These were stamped and embossed in white on black card.
Some shading around the edges was added to bring it all together.
Then it was matted and layered onto cardstock.

The Myth and Magic Challenge is underway
through this blog or through the
Lost Coast Designs Official Group on facebook.

A huge thank you to LCD for having me along this month.
I hope that you join in the challenge.
I enjoyed playing with this stamp, she is gorgeous!
