#135 Let's fly challenge at Lost Coast Designs. Step by step marble background.

Hi there, I love this theme, you can use what ever you like that can fly.
Birds, butterfly's, dragonfly's or steampunk images with wings, angels and .........

 Stamps that I used and how I made the card.

Butterfly set.

Art wings to fly.

Coatted paper
Distress oxide:
Iced spruce
Speckled egg
Bundled sage
Stazon black
and some markers for coloring.

Smear some of the 3 oxide colors on your craftsheet and spray with water.
Dab the paper in here, repeat until you are satisfied.
I left it very light because I wanted a marble effect.
Now I made the marble veins with the black Distress oxide.
With the side of the ink pad you draw stripes on the craft sheet.
You spray this with water and put the paper on it.
Don't wipe, just dab the black.
Let it air dry.

And look what a beautiful result.
You can of course do it in all kinds of other color combinations.
Or just keep it black and white.
What ever you like most.
Stamp the Steampunk bicycle lady with Distress oxide iced spruce.
And with Stazon black you can now stamp the round pieces of calligraphy, the alphabet strip and the butterfly.
Because the paper is coated, it takes a little longer for the ink to dry.
Now mask all the stamps and stamp the background with Distress oxide Iced spruce and a piece of calligraphy stamp.
Color the stamps to your liking and then you're done.

The team would love it if you join the challenge.
And you can also win new rubber stamps.
You are not even required to use LCD stamps.
As long as you follow the theme.
So, click on the link and join us and most of all have fun.

Gnome challenge #134 at Lost Coast Designs

Hi, Riet here.
What a fun challenge
Do you also love gnomes?

As this is my last contribution to Lost Coast designs this year, 
I bring you this last Christmas greeting.
I wish you all a very merry and loving Christmas.
And a happy new year to everyone.
I am back at LCD on the 1sth of Januari.

The stamp is the Sweater Gnome,
With the help of some maskingtape I stamped the sweater gnome 3 times.

 I colored the gnomes with pencils and drew some things on the hat with a white gelpen,
 so that it looks like 3 different gnomes. 
Take 5 sticks of 20 cm wood and paint them. 
Make the star as shown in the picture. 
I glued the star first and later tied the twine around the ends. 
Glue the gnomes on it.
Glue a Christmas greeting on it and you're all set. 
This is so nice to give as a gift, or hang it in your tree.
The challenge runs until the end of the month, so you can still participate. 
Click on the link and join the fun, and maybe you'll be the winner of new rubber this month.

Lost coast designs challenge #135 Anything go's gnomes.

 Hello everyone,
We have another fun challenge at Lost Coast designs.
A whole month its all about gnomes.
If you dont have a LCD gnome, dont worry, 
it is allowed to use other brands.
I stamped a tag this time.
Pretty easy and quick to make.
So here is the step by step explanation.

What I used:
Carmens Veranda sentiment.
Click on the stamps to take you to de website.

Distress Oxide and distressink,
Pink flamingo,
Peacock feathers,
Diamond stencil,
Color markers,
Versafine onyx black,
Small ruler or a plastic card.
White posca pen.

Take a piece of paper or a tag.
Spread some distress oxide in both colors evenly over the stencil. 
Spray water over it.
Press the stencil onto the paper as if you were stamping.
Dry it with the heat tool.
Now take the stamps and the distressink.
Stamp like the example or as you see fit.
Take the ruler and the Versafine.
Swipe the pad with the ruler to apply the black ink to the edges. 
Splash some black ink or paint over the tag.
Stamp with Versafine the gnome.
Color the gnome and cut her out.
Gleu her to the tag.
Well you won't believe it, but even though I use a stamping aid,
My text doesn't often have a nice straight line, LOL.
You'll probably be better off than me, 
so stamp the sentiment with versamark.
This text is from Carmens Veranda,
on the CV site you will find a whole page with the most beautiful and funniest text stamps.
Stick a piece of black cardstock to the back and you are done.
Hope you have fun in creating your gnome card, tag or anything you want to make.
And please share your art with us and join the challenge.
There are rubber stamps to win so come and participate.

#134 Yeah a challenge all about gnomes, at Lost Coast designs.

 Hello everyone,
How nice, a challenge with everything about gnomes throughout December.
I love these mini people, they are so cute and happy.
And Lost Coast designs has a lot of them.
Scroll down the page, because there are a lot of gnomes lower on the page.

Since it's December, I made a Christmas card with the gnome.
I love the Micro Distress glaze and used it with the snowflakes.
Then I used various colors of blue watercolor for the background.
I kept the bottom edge white to make snow.
I added the snow edge with a pencil.
I splashed snowflakes with white paint.
And from black glitter paper I punched some black musical notes.
I colored the ZZ Top gnome with pencils.
Then I wrote "Oh holy night" with a waterproof pen and a stencil.
And that was it for this time.
I hope you join the challenge too.
You must have a gnome stamp to join.
The stamp maybe of any brand.
So enter for a chance to win LCD/CV stamps.
Dont forget to reed the rules.
And have fun creating.

Lost Coast Designs challenge #133 Its a Wrap. Wine bottle.

Hi there, I love this challenge.
It's something different than making a card.
I thought long and hard about this project, and thought it would be fun to wrap a wine bottle.
But I didn't want to do it the traditional way.
I used the Labels set and the beautiful Lycaonia stamp,

So I changed the label with the nice label set stamp.
I left the original label on the bottle and sponged the edges with distressink Walnut stain.
With the wine label stamp, I stamped with micro glaze.
Then sponged the label with Distressink Dusty Concord.
I sponged the outside of the label with distressink Chipped sapphire. 
I also did this with the bow and a stamp from the pieces
of architecture set.
The bow is a die cut.

And now the top of the bottle.
Take a strip of paper that fits easily on the bottle.
Make the strip 8 cm wide.
I made a drawing of the model.

Note that the bottom strip is folded forward.
In this way it is a kind of pocket into which a tag will be inserted later.
Sponge it like the label and bow.
Now you make a tag that fits in the bag and sticks out slightly above it.
Make some dots and stars with a white gel pen.
With a stencil I wrote the Merry Christmas on it.

Now stamp the Lycaonia stamp with black waterproof ink.
I colored this stamp with pencils, but you can decide for yourself with which you color.
Glue her on the front edge of the bottle band.

Now put the band with the tag in it around the bottle neck, 
see how tight it has to be so that the tag does not bend too much.
Glue the two ends together.
Assemble the bow and glue it just below the Lycaonia stamp.
 And you're done.

I hope you liked it, if you have any questions feel free to ask.
This was my last contribution for this challenge.
But the challenge runs until November 30th.
So you can still participate and stand a chance to win a prize.
And who wouldn't want to win free rubber stamps.
