* Lost Coast Designs: Get out of the Mailbox!


I'm on the last minute this month with my entry for the Lost Coast Designs challenge. The theme is Make It Funny and I made this card:

I honestly don't know if I could send this to anyone I know! When I studied the funny lady, I noticed she has a remarkable resemblance to me! Specs, faded red, curly hair, lipstick - always lipstick and lounging in her dressing gown and slippers. I wouldn't want the recipient to think I was serious - hahaha!!

Anyhow, like I said, this was last minute, so was super quick and easy to make. I stamped the Lost Coast Designs image, called Party On, and sentiment and coloured with Arteza Brush Pens and Copics. I fussy cut them. The background is just DO inks (Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Wilted Violet) applied with acetate. Some water splatters bleach out some colour and add to the texture and white Posca pen was splattered all over. I added some texture crackle stamping in Wilted Violet to the edges of the card, then inked the edges in the same and finished with black edging.
I cut the sentiment into strips and juggled around to fit it on the card in two sections.
If you like funny, snarky sentiments (and sometimes 'off the wall'!) there are plenty to be found in the Lost Coast Designs store here.

That's all for today.
Thanks for stopping by.

Oh, this is so fun!! But I agree, I don't think I would be able to send it to anyone either! I see so many sentiments like this that are hysterical, but I just couldn't use! Anyway, fabulous card and awesome background! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
