Badass Owl

Here is a project for the Lost Coast Designs ATC Cards, Coins and Chunkys at the Lost Coast Portal.  

I made another ATC coin for this project - after years of doing standard ATCs it's been a lot of fun to make the coins for a change of pace. I used some background paper I had on had made with my Gelli plate and some blue, green, and yellow acrylic paints.  I started by stamping my coin with the Medium Shrubbery background stamp, using StayzOn black ink.  I then die cut a "branch" from a floral die cut set and colored over it with black marker.  I attached that across the lower portion of my coin.  I then stamped the Moon Owl onto white card stock with black ink and cut him out.  I restamped the beak and eyes onto yellow paper, cut them out, superimposing them over the original stamped image.  I positioned my owl perched on the branch, and using a white Gel pen, I dotted some "stars" into the sky.

Finally, I stamped my sentiment Once A Badass from Carmen's Veranda onto white paper.  It was a bit large for my coin, so I used my copier to reduce the size, cut it and and attached it to my coin.

Face with a Heart

I made this ATC coin for the current Lost Coast Design Challenge going on March 1st - 15th at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity:  ATC Coins, Cards, and Chunkies.

For this challenge I chose to go with an ATC coin, although my coin is a bit larger than the standard 2.5 inch coin.  I used the  Face With Heart stamp from Lost Coast Designs.  

I stamped my image onto a piece of green and yellow Gelli printed paper using black StayzOn ink.  I then centered a round die over the image and die cut it into a circle.  I edged the outer rim with black ink.  I stamped the eye, lips and eyebrow again onto white paper and colored those with pink, blue and green marker.  Then I cut those out and affixed them atop the corresponding parts on my original stamped image.  I added some Glossy Accents to the heart to give it some shine and some dimension.

Hope to see you over at the Portal!!
