Sentimentally Yours: Just A Girl Looking for A Donut

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!

Hi, it's Laurie back again with a postcard for the "Sentimentally Yours" Challenge going on til the end of this month here on the Portal.  We want to see your projects that include a sentiment or saying.

For this postcard, I used the 50's Girl stamp from Lost Coast Designs and the In Front of A Salad clear stamp from Carmen's Veranda.  If you want to check out a great selection of fabulous sentiments, please visit the Clearstamps page at the Carmen's Veranda website - lots of them will make you smile!

My postcard background is a piece of checked scrapbook paper, edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I stamped my 50's Girl with black ink onto white paper and fussy cut her out.  I then restamped her onto a piece of red scrapbook paper and cut out just her dress, attaching that atop the original stamped image.  I added a bit of color with some Copic Sketch markers.  I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of vintage diary page paper and edged it with the same Distress ink.  I lightly attached both of these stamped images to my postcard front and then built my collage around them.  By not completely fastening down my central items, I am able to position pieces of ephemera, etc behind and around them.  Once I have all my collage elements in place, then I will finish gluing down my central elements.  

So come join us before the month is over! We look forward to seeing your "Sentimentally Yours" projects.  Be sure to include some rubber stamping for a chance to win some free stamps!
