Sentiment in Focus: Housewife

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 again from Laurie to let you know that you still have almost a week to enter you projects in this latest challenge here on the Portal:  Sentiment in Focus.  For this challenge you willl be using a saying or sentiment that has at least five words.  Be sure to feature rubber stamping in all your projects too!

For this one I used the Housewife stamp from Lost Coast Designs and the Fairy Godmother clear stamp from Carmen's Veranda.

My background was made using  a stencil and some pink Distress Oxide Ink on a scrap paper that I had spritzed with a bit of green Distress Spray.  I stamped my housewife onto white card stock and fussy cut her out.  Next I restamped her, first onto some pink scrapbook paper then onto some flowered scrapbook paper.  From the pink paper I cut our her dress, and from the flowered paper I cut out her apron.  I superimposed these onto my original stamped image and glued them in place.  I added some color to her with my Copic Sketch markers and added some fancy pearls to her fuzzy slippers!  

My sentiment was stamped with black ink onto a white square that I had edged in black.  I glued this to the upper left corner of my front as shown, then added my housewife below that.  And that's a wrap!

You have until September 29th to enter your projects for a chance to win some free stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda.  What are you waiting for!!
