#149 Background in focus, the new challenge at lost Coast designs.

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 everyone, Riet here with a new step by step tutorial.
What a nice challenge to expose the background stamps.
LCD has very nice background stamps, which can ease take a leading role in your project.

Now the description of this card.
What did I use:
LCD Background stamp Gears 2 and,
Distress Oxide: Saltwater taffy, Peacock feathers, Bundled sage,
Crackling campfire, Ground espresso
Distressink: Vintage photo, , Antique linen, Walnut stane.
Stazon Timber brown.
Markers or color pencils.
Gold glitter for the wings.
White gel pen. 

And this is how I made the card.
Spread the 3 colors over your craft sheet and spray a little bit of water.
Pass your paper through this.
Let it dry well between colors.
     With Distress oxide Ground espresso we now stamp the background.
We repeat this with Distress oxide Crackled campfire.
Let it dry very well.
And this is what it looks like, as if the gears have rusted.

With these 3 colors you sponge the edges, starting with the lightest.
With some brown paint or ink we make some stains on the background.

Stamp the dragonfly on a clean pice of paper and on to the background.
Color the dragonfly and give the wings a little bit of gold shimmer.
Cut the dragonfly out. 
Gleu only the body on the card and make it look if it fly's away.
Make a banner with the dragonfly text the same way as the card.
Stick on with raised tape, mat the card with brown cardboard.
Now your done, hope you have fun with the card.
Now it's up to you, show your idea with a background stamp.
 Join the challenge and maybe you'll win new stamps. 
You can even enter with other brands. 
Please read the rules to avoid misunderstandings.
