Turquoise and Terra Cotta Day 4: Mayan Man

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 and happy May from Laurie.  I hope the spring weather has arrived to wherever this finds you, and that you are all safe and healthy.

I have a fun card today for the new Turquoise and Terracotta challenge using the Mayan Hieroglyphs stamp set from Lost Coast Designs.
My background was created by using some heavy paper, a stencil, some Liquitex Mat Medium and my Gelli plate.  I applied a thin layer of Mat Medium to my Gelli plate and using a brayer rolled it on evenly.  I then placed a stencil atop this and pulled a print.  Next I removed the stencil and pulled another print.  Once these were dry I went over them with different colored inks - this one uses blue and green Distress Inks.

I stamped my Mayan gentleman with black ink onto white paper and proceeded to color him with Copic Sketch Markers in shades of terracotta and turquoise.  I used a silver Gel pen to add some silver touches.  I attached him to my background piece, stamped my sentiment on a white square that I outlined with black, and attached the sentiment above.  I attached a couple of turquoise enamel dots to his necklace to look like pieces of turquoise.  Final step was to edge the outside with some turquoise ink.
These two colors for this challenge work so well together so play around and see what wonderful projects you can create for a chance to win some free stamps!
