MailArt Sunday - Immersed in Twilight and New Blog for LCD/CV events!



In celebration of our new event blog launch, The Lost Coast Portal to Creativity, we are having a New Stamp release event. We as DT will showcase what you can make with these wonderful new stamp images and I would like to share with you this Mixed Media Piece I call Immersed in Twilight. 

The cityscape stamp is one of my favorites from the new releases at Lost Coast Designs and this is one is used in this example. It is made on sturdy carson watercolor paper. First I stamped the small doll face, which is also part of the face butterfly set of the new releases, with versamark and embossed it with clear WOW embossing powder. I used it as a moon. Then stamped the cityscape at the bottom at the whole length of the card with versamark and embossed with black embossing powder. I masked the moonface and started to work on the sky. I used a mix of cerulean colored goache and iridescent paint medium to make the blue part and cloud wisps. To get the 'immersion in twilight' feel of the city, I used metallic rub-ons on the cityscape in copper and purple. I mostly used my fingers for this. But you have rub gently as you could risk rubbing off the embossing. I also rubbed bits of purple in between the roofs of the city to mix with the light blue. It gives it a light 'city on fire' look. I took away the mask of the moon and rubbed on a silver metallic rub on the face and contours to give it a 'halo'. To finish it off I applied bits of silver metallic rub on on the sky and embossed it with 'Starlight' embossing powder by Stampendous.
