Strong Women: Frida

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!

Howdy from Laurie at the beginning of another fun Challenge here on the Portal.  This one is Strong Women.  "Strong Women:  May we know them.  May we raise them.  May we be them."

For this card I used one of my favorite Lost Coast stamps of Frida Kahlo.  This is just one
of a nice selection you will find at Lost Coast Designs.  

My Frida was stamped onto coffee dyed onion skin paper using StayZ On ink in Black.  I layered that with a piece of vintage ledger paper to give it more body, then fussy cut around the edges as shown.

The background is a piece of a master board I made using various pieces of hand made papers.  I glued my Frida to the center of the card front as shown, making sure all the edges were down securely as the paper is fairly thin.  Final step was to machine stitch around the perimeter of the card.

We would love to see your Strong Woman creations.  Please be sure to feature some rubber stamping in your work for a chance to win some free rubber stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!
