Inchie Twinchie Background: Fit for A King

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!

Hey again from Laurie with a second project for the Inchie Twinchie background challenge.  You will create a stamped background for your project using "inchies and twinchies" - one inch by one inch squares or two inch by two inch squares.  I fudged a bit on this one and made my squares one and a half inches - so I guess I can call them Inchies and a Half!

I started with a Gelli print I had on hand, and using the Doodle Circles and White Waves background stamps from Lost Coast Designs, I stamped each stamp onto the Gelli print using black ink.  I then cut out each into one and a half inch squares.  I mounted those in alternate order onto a piece of Kraft card stock and trimmed around the edges. 

 Next I stamped the Chess Knight from Lost Coast Designs onto a piece of coffee dyed paper and fussy cut it out.  I then mounted my cut knight to a piece of black card stock and cut around it for the second time.  I adhered this to the right side of my card front with foam tape to give it some dimension.  I added some gold Nuvo Crystal Drops to the top of the crown.

I stamped the Hokey Pokey Clinic clear stamp from Carmen's Veranda onto a scrap of my coffee dyed paper using black ink, cut it out and layered it with a piece of black paper.  I attached it to the left of my knight and my card is done!

So get out your rubber stamps (or clear acrylic stamps) and make an Inchie Twinchie background project for a chance to win some free stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!
