CHALLENGE #101 - BACKGROUND FORWARD

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 Portal Peeps.  It's time for our new Challenge.
Our challenges are now fortnightly!  A new challenge starting the 1st and the 15th of every month, with chances to win your self some Lost Coast dollars. We will be announcing winners on the 5th of the month, so do pop back and see who wowed the team and gets our snazzy blog badge and the coveted Lost Coast dollars.

Now for our new Challenge!

CHALLENGE #101

BACKGROUND FORWARD

We want you to use a BACKGROUND STAMP or make a background using real rubber or clear stamps and we want it to be the star of your project.  You can add a sentiment, embellishments or an image, but the stamped background must be obvious and prominent. 

Real rubber or clear stamping and the theme must be the focus of your project.  A small stamped sentiment in a sea of die cuts or digi images will not qualify to win the prize and you may be deleted!!!!  Bwahahhaaahaha.

Please remember we do have some Challenge Rules to follow so look them over to ensure your entries qualify to win this month's prize!

You are welcome to play in our Challenges using rubber stamp images from any company but if you use any of our Lost Coast Designs or Carmen's Veranda stamps...we love it when you do...then your entry counts as two which doubles your chances of winning in our random prize drawing.

Cathy stamped Lost Coast Designs Grunge Diamond Background, added clear gesso and alcohol inks and Carmen's Veranda Too Much Happy sentiment for a beautiful card.

Liesbeth made this lovely card using Lost Coast Designs Flagstone Background stamp.  Then she decorated with distress glazes, embossing powder, stickles and rock candy and added the Congratulations from the Party Words set.
  Here's a close up of all those yummy colours and textures!

Riet used Lost Coast Designs Birds in Trees Background stamp and watercolored
for a gorgeous result!!
