Happy New Year From Everyone

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 Portal Peeps.  Happy New Year from Gail.  Again.  
But you can never have too much happy can you.   
I hope your 2023 is off to an awesome start.
For my project today I decided to look through my stamps and select a few favourites to use.   Turns out I have way too many favourites, but after some deliberation, and a bit of push and shove, I became happy with this.
For this card I used lots of stamps, lots of masks and blue and black archival ink.  We have Lost Coast Designs ZZ Top Gnome 2 and Carmen's Veranda Monkey with a Banjo supplying the music, direction and artistic appreciation by Carmen's Veranda Alfred Hitchcock Standing and Salvador Dali, entertainment by Carmen's Veranda Kukla and Ollie, Lost Coast Designs Doodle Doll is supplying an element of mystery and the celebratory fly-by is courtesy of Lost Coast Designs Flying Pig.  I used a couple of the stamps from Lost Coast Designs Pieces of Calligraphy to fill in the empty spaces.
Here are a few pictures of the 'unveiling'

Remember, if you are stamping and masking a scene you stamp the front elements first and work back.  Sometimes its helpful to roughly stamp all the images on a scrap piece of paper first so you can see how they go together.
 I hope you get time to share our Slimline Challenge for a chance to win Lost Coast dollars.
Don't forget to stamp!!!
Thanks for dropping by.

I’m late to the party but happy new year! I absolutely love this — masking was the first real “technique” I learned and it still gives me a childish kick when I peel masks off to reveal a scene. Love the combination of characters bringing their unique talents to the party!
