Hello again to all of you visiting the Lost Coasters Review. This is Laurie giving you the skinny on this card I made featuring one of the new stamps from Lost Coast Designs - this one is called Steampunk Heart.
I love the steampunk genre and love this little heart with all it's gears and chains.
I stamped the heart onto a piece of paper I had painted with cream and orange paints kind of subtly swirled together. I used black ink which I heat set to dry completely. I then colored in the elements on the heart with Copic markers in shades of brown, black, rust, and I used a gold Uni-ball pen to make the gold accents.
I mounted the heart with foam tape onto a background I made using with Distress inks covering white paper. I used several stencils to add more Distress ink - one lattice work stencil and another clockwork stencil - in darker shades of brown and rust. I then stenciled three hearts with gold ink and smudged more gold ink randomly onto the page. It's hard to see in my photo but the foam tape raises the heart above the background and give the whole thing some dimension. Finished product was then mounted onto a white panel.
