I Want to Ride My Bicycle

This card was created for the Lost Coast Designs Portal to Creativity "Round and Round" challenge, running from June 15th to the 30th.

I used the Doodle Circles background stamp and the Steampunk Bicycle Lady stamp, both from Lost Coast Designs.
The sentiment is one of Carmen's Veranda clear stamps: Inappropriate Behavior.

Three Butterflies

Here are 3 ATCs I made for the current Lost Coast Designs Challenge:  Mini Me.  The object of the challenge is to create something smaller than a card - an ATC, an inchie, a tag., etc.

For these three ATCs I used the ATC Set Text #1 and the Butterflies Set.  Backgrounds were created 
using various stencils and distress inks.  Butterflies were colored with Copic markers.

Once A Badass

Here is a fun card for the Tweet This Challenge going on now at the    Lost Coast Designs Portal to Creativity.

For this card I used the Cracked Bird on Wheels stamp from Lost Coast Designs and the Once A Badass clear stamp from Carmen's Veranda.

I stamped my bird onto a background paper I had on hand that I made with green and pink acrylic paint, some stencils, and my Gelli plate.  I edged this panel with green Distress Ink and stamped my Cracked Bird onto the background.  I then added some color to my bird with some green and lavender Copic markers and added some Glossy Accents to his eye and beak.

I stamped my sentiment onto white paper then cut it in pieces and attached it to the left top corner.  Finally I layered my piece with white then lavender card stock.  

Be sure to check out the other fun Cracked Critter stamps at Lost Coast Designs.  And dust off your bird stamps and make something fun for this Tweet This Challenge!!
