Three Tenors

Greetings from Laurie to all you Lost Coast fans as we approach the end of summer - where did it go??  Way too fast!

It has been so much fun making things for the event at Lost Coast Designs:  Tip Your Hat.
 I find I can make and place a hat on just about anything, if it doesn't already have one.  For this one, I used one of my favorite LCD stamps Three Waiters.


I stamped these guys with black ink onto white cardstock.  Using Copic markers I gave them a little skin tone, and using an orange marker I filled in the stripes on their aprons.  I then cut hats out of some different scraps of paper I had and attached them.  (If you look closely, you can see that the hat of the guy on the left has a chicken on it!)

I attached my stamped image to a background I created with my Gelli plate and some acrylic paints and stencils.  Before I painted and stenciled, I used some matte medium to collage some vintage papers onto my white yardstick so those images show through the paint as well.  I added a few random stamps in black in to fill in the bare spots and edged it with black marker then layered it with a piece of white card stock.

Final step was to stamp the word Sing with black ink onto white paper and cut our around the letters.  I affixed this atop my card with foam tape to give it some dimension.

And voila!  The "Three Waiters" become "Three Tenors"!

Go do something creative today and if it's got a hat then hop over and join out Tip Your Hat event.  The linky is open until September 14th!!
