Seahorses ATCs with Lost Coast Designs!

Howzit Friends!
Lost Coast Designs May Challenge began on Monday and here's the two ATCs I made as my DT inspiration!  First a quick note that the May Challenge will be the last one hosted on the Lost Coaster's Review Blog coz I'm thrilled to give you the heads up that we will soon launch a brand new combined Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda Events and Challenge Blog by mid May!  Exciting times ahead, Woohoo ;0)

Now for my ATCs featuring Lost Coast Designs Seahorse and large Bubbles background stamps.
I used the same two stamps but used the Bubbles stamp differently to achieve different effects!

For the ATC above I inked up the Bubbles background stamp with a combination of Versafine Ink Sea Breeze and Turquoise Gem and removed some of the ink by stamping on scrap paper first and then onto the ATC for a softer effect.  The Seahorse was then stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink.
For the ATC below I stamped the Seahorse first and then the Bubbles was stamped over the top without removing any ink first.

Both ATCs were then coloured with various Copic markers to achieve the watery effects and the Bubbles of the background stamp were enhanced with Vive Pearl Transparent Magic White dimensional paint which also takes on the colour underneath and adds a beautiful sparkly shimmer to each bubble.  My photos just don't do them justice, it was hard to capture how magical and shimmery they look in person!

I hope I've inspired you to create some ATCs this month and join our Lost Coast Designs Challenge!  I look forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations featuring LCD and even Carmen's Veranda images!  Tell you friends to come and play coz if we get 10 entries you are all in the running for a $10 gift certificate to spend at LCD/CV!

Happy Stamping!
