Frida Kahlo

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!

Welcome to the first day of our newest challenge:  Frida Kahlo or Other Women.
It's Laurie here, and we are so glad you have joined us today.  I hope this card will inspire you to enter your projects here on the Portal for a chance to win some free stamps.

This card uses the Frida 3 stamp from Lost Coast Designs.  I love this stamp and the quote from Frida that surrounds it.  My background is a piece of vintage book paper that has been stained with green and yellow  Distress Inks.  Atop that I have randomly added some orange acrylic paint and edged it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  It is layered to a white panel.

Frida was stamped with black ink onto white card stock and cut out as shown.  I colored her with some Distress water color pencils in shades of rust and yellow and added a bit of pink to her cheeks.  She was then centered and glued atop the card front.

Please be sure to share your projects here on the Portal - we can't wait to see what you create!
