Frida the Artist

Lost Coast Designs has three Frida stamps.  I only have one of them, but they all are equally beautiful!

Only recently have I read about Frida Kahlo one of Mexico's most famous artists.  Just in her teens she suffered injuries from a bus accident that would cause health issues her whole life.  She was famous for her self portraits showing the pain she suffered. Her marriage to Diego was turbulent at times. Her art was an expression of herself and life.  A beautiful and compassionate woman, she died in 1947 at the young age of 47.  There is so much to learn about the life of Frida, I plan to pick up her biography and read more about Frida the artist soon.

Today I am sharing a card made with the Lost Coast Designs Frida 1 stamp!

Craft Mat
Black ink
Watercolor Paper

On craft mat rub several colors of Gelatos and add water to each color.

Do not wet watercolor paper, on the watercolor paper with paint brush swipe each color of Gelatos as pictured.

Set aside to dry.

Stamp the Lost Coast Designs - Frida1 stamp with black ink on white cardstock, then heat emboss with embossing powder. Fussy cut the image of Frida.

When the card is dry stamp the Lost Coast Designs

Frida1 stamp with black ink.  Adhere bits of  Guilding - Gold Leaf with Glue.


Place 3D Foam Adhesive on the back of the fussy cut Frida.

Attach flowers folded in half behind Frida's head and embellish with rhinestones!  

This has been a great month for me, I loved creating with each and every stamp I worked with from Lost Coast Designs!

Hope you all were inspired by all the projects
