#184 Cute and-or Fluffy art journal page.

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 everybody, Riet here,
is still running.
Last days, but you can still join.
I made a page for my art journal that I just started.
And I am so in love with this sweet white cat from Carmen's Veranda stamps.

What I used.

Washi tape,
Crackling campfire,
Twisted citron,
Forest moss, 
Evergreen bough.
Versafine Onyx black or any other waterproof black ink.
Markers or color pencils.

Start by inking the largest stamp of the shadow frames
 with twisted citron and evergreen bough.
Spray a little water on it and print it on the paper.
Dry the paper well with the heat tool.
Looks so pretty, just like watercolor art.

Take 3 different washi tapes and stick them on.
I cut them with the washi chomper from We R makers.

Stamp with Forest moss and the stamp from the pieces of calligraphy sheet,
 on the right side of the green ink print.
1x at the top and 1x at the bottom.
The bottom print is upside down because the text runs nicely along the cat's body.
Because the cat is pasted over it later, you cannot see that the text is printed upside down.

We now stamp the crackle background with distressink 
Crackling campfire and Evergreen bough.
But only use a small part of the stamp.

Now the flowers and the cat.
Stamp them with black waterproof ink in the places where you want them.
Now take thin paper and stamp them on it again.

Color the flowers and cat and glue them on.

Stamp the sentiment with the black ink.
Give the words some orange accents.
And finally, take a green pencil and create
 some shadow along the washi and the cat.
And that's it, hope you liked it.

The LCD challenge runs until the end of the month.
So there is still time to participate.
You can also participate with other brands of stamps. 
As long as your project is stamped.
See you next time, and don't forget, have fun stamping.
