#180 In the deep mid winter challenge.

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 there, Riet here.
 Its a lovely challenge, love the winter theme.
I hope you will join the lost coast designs challenge.
You have a chance to win stamps.
And let's face it, who wouldn't want that.
Now the step by step of this winter landscape.

What I used for this card.
(used only the tree)

Midnight Blue.
Jet Black
Saddle brown

Dusty concord
Musterd seed
Chipped sapphire
Stormy sky
Tumbled glass 
Distress oxide,
Weathered wood

White gelpen.
Markers or color pencils.

I started with 3 strips of paper that were torn off.
Sponge along the paper edges with the Distress Oxide Wethered wood.
This way you can make beautiful snow edges.

I also use these strips as masks when I stamp the cityscape.
I stamped it with stazon midnight blue.

Now choose a place where the moon should be and
use Distress ink Musterd seed to make a yellow spot slightly larger than the moon stamp.
Stamp the moon with the Stazon Saddle brown.

Now we are going to create the sky with ink blenders.
For this we take different colors and build up, from light to dark, as shown on the card.
I used these distress ink colors for this
Dusty concord, Chipped sapphire, Stormy sky, Tumbled glass.

Well, because I only thought about using the Lycaonia stamp at this point, I stamped her on a thin paper, colored her in and glued her on later.
But before I glued her on I first stamped her on the card so I knew exactly where to place her.

Stamped the trees with Stazon black.
Now finish with the white gel pen. Make stars in the sky and snow on the tree branches.

I hope you enjoyed it and join us in the challenge. The more who participate, the greater the prize.
And you can even participate with stamps from another brand.
