Celebrate It! Challenge - Lost Coast Designs

Hello Friends - Happy July!

Can you believe that we are starting the 7th month of the year...I just don't know where the time has gone.  Anyway, the first is always the start of a new challenge at Lost Coast Designs and this 2 week challenge is - Celebrate It!  Stamp a card that celebrates anything and you're all set to enter!

Here is what I created for today....

I used the high kickin' Showgirls stamp which was stamped using VersaFine Clair - Nocturne ink. I colored it using Arteza colored pencils and added a bit of glitter and pen work on their shoes.  It was then fussy cut and set aside.  

The background is a piece of a gelli print using red, white and blue (thought it was appropriate for this holiday season). This print was trimmed and mounted on a piece of Sapphire Starstruck Foiled Paper by Rinea. At this time I flicked on Mister Huey's Opaque White Color Mist. I then stamped the sentiment along the right hand side using Tulip Red VersaFine Clair ink.  

This panel was mounted on a white card base and then the showgirl image was affixed to the card using double stick foam tape.

  1. Just saw one of your cards on another site and it made me think about you. How is your grandson? I hope things are improving. I haven't been following blogs for a few months due to some health issues, but I still have Cole's name on the wall in my room (along with other people who need prayer)
    You really have a varied repertoire of techniques. Very interesting.

    1. Hi Tonilea - He's not doing so well - not sure when you last visited but initially he broke his leg in Oct/Late Nov of 2018. Shortly after he got that cast off he broke his other leg in late January of this year. He got his cast off in March and then he broke the same leg in the same spot about a month ago. It's been so tough on the little guy...between the 2nd and 3rd break he was so afriad to walk on his own for fear he'd break it again...he was just getting to the point where he'd walk on his own (without holding someone's hand or using a walker) and then it happened again. It's just so sad...I hate that disease and wish I could take it away.

      Thank you, I like to switch things up and work with lots of styles - I always have. I have been asked in the past what my style is and I always say Eclectic...I don't have any one style, it's a mish mash of things I like :)


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
