Isle of Aud card trio

Hello Lost Coasters and Happy New Year to you all!
Leigh here with my first DT post for 2016!

Today I'm sharing three quirky cards featuring Lost Coast Designs bizarre African animals from Isle of Aud (sold as a set).  I also used the Tree Branches Background and the Zebra Border stamp.

All the animals are stamped with onyx black Memento ink onto Neenah solar white cardstock and coloured with Copic markers.  The folded card bases for all 3 cards were super fun to make.  I used blue cardstock and stamped the Tree Branches background stamp with Versamark ink and applied black embossing powder...then the magic happened when I randomly painted the cardstock with household bleach, the blue transformed into varying shades of purple and pink depending on how much bleach was applied....SO COOL!  The zebra border was created the same way but I used a different blue cardstock which achieved a different result once the bleach was applied, it turned from blue to white.  Here's a closer look at the animals!
