Fridafest Day 1

Image may contain: 4 people, text

Hello Friends and welcome to
Day 1 of the Fridafest Blog Hop!

Have you seen the amazing Frida Kahlo Stamps in the Lost Coast Designs Shop?? Linda has now added 4 new designs so we decided to showcase these beauties with two days of blog hopping.

Here is my creation for today. I wanted to go a bit outside my comfort zone so I decided that red was going to be a main color focus for this project. I also wanted to give her a bit of bling so I painted the image and card with mica watercolor paints. She was initially stamped using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink, I then colored her using USArtQuest Mica Color watercolor paints. After I had painted the image I tore around it and inked it with Tulip Red VFC ink.

To create the background I mixed up a watery Super Russet (red) Mica Color paint and flicked it over  the entire black card panel. It is so shimmery in the light (see the photo below...).

"Inspiration" was stamped on a scrap bit of a gelli print I had in my stash.
I finished the card off with a few tiny Prima flowers and mini leaves I hand cut from Emerald Rinea Foiled Paper.

Be sure to see the Lost Coast Designs Blog for a full list of hop stops here:

We will be back again tomorrow with some more inspiration.
The more comments you leave the better chance you have to win a prize!

For another chance to win you can link up your Frida Kahlo inspired projects on the Fridafest blog post.

Your project can include a Frida Kahlo image, or be inspired by anything associated with her, but please explain your inspiration if it isn't obvious and don't forget that we need to see the use of real rubber or clear stamps.  Please don't forget to tell us the maker of your stamps and those using Lost Coast Designs and/or Carmen's Veranda stamps will get an extra chance at the random draw.
