Lost Coast Designs Funky Image!

Hi Dreamers,
Today, let's really delve into the dream world with this super funky image from Lost Coast Designs called Drag Queen.  LOL.  I know!  Funny name!   I made two versions with this image, one is paper pieced and the other is stamped on a background I made with Distress reinkers and Metallic Stains.  Check out the paper pieced version first.

I started with a background made with reinkers and Distress stains on this card too.  But, I also paper pieced the image here.  The DP's are from MME.  The first layer is canvas paper colored with Distress stains.

 I finished off the card with a bright yellow/orange ribbon, orange rick rack, and yellow rhinestones.

On the second project, I made the background with Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar Distress reinkers, and Brass Metallic Stain.   The image is stamped with Versa Fine Onyx Black ink.

I girly-ed it up with some pink satin ribbon and buttons. The Purple CS's are from Bazzill.

Just another super fun and funky image from Lost Coast Designs!  Love the fantasy quality of the image!
