Lost Coast Designs & Carmen's Veranda - Stamped Background Challenge!

Hello my ink stained friends!  I have some exciting new to share with you today...I have been chosen to be on the design team for Lost Coast Designs & Carmen's Veranda!!  I am very excited about this - I have admired these stamps for a very long time, they are very artsy and work well not only on cards but in mixed media arts and collage too!  I can't wait to share my creations with you, I have been having lots of fun with them.

Every 2 weeks LCD/CV hosts a new first piece I get to share with you was inspired by their new challenge - Stamped Backgrounds.

I started off by stamping the Pencils Background onto a piece of white cardstock using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink. Each pencil was colored using a variety of watercolor and colored pencils. This was mounted on a blue card blank.

The next layer is a piece of self adhesive vellum that was colored with Nuance pigment powder. 

Georges and Lewis was stamped once in VF Clair Nocturne and a second time with Paradise blue VFC ink.  The shirt was trimmed from the second image and affixed to the first.  I stamped an extra pencil with green, brown, grey and pink ink which was trimmed and pieced back together to create the pencil which I tucked under his arm.  He was affixed to the card panel using double stick foam tape.

Finally I die-cut the sentiment and inked it with a bit of the Paradise ink.

I hope you hop on over to the blog to check out the other inspiring creations and possibly enter one of your own for your chance to win $$$ to acquire your own Lost Coast Designs & Carmen's Veranda stamps!
