Lost Coast Designs Mayan Blog Hop - Day 1

Hello.  Welcome.  The Lost Coast Designs Design Team are having a Mayan Blog hop to celebrate some cool new stamps in the shop.  You should be coming from Cathy's blog if you are following the hop, but if you have just happened by then you can find the full hop list HERE.

The team have been stamping up a storm using the fabulous Mayan Hieroglyph and Mayan Stele stamps.

Here's my card.

I started by stamping the black card base with the Mayan Stele stamp and versamark ink  and embossed with black powder. 

I stamped the Mayan Stele on kraft card using Potting Soil archival ink and fussy cut it.  I stamped the Mayan dude, coloured him with Promarkers and fussy cut.  This guy comes with his own little stone block so I stamped that again on the same kraft card.  He looks a little puzzled and that monkey falling out of his pocket is probably not helping!!

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to leave a little love to be in with a chance to win a prize.  To continue on the hop you need to go to Laurie.  If you get lost or find a broken link then you can find the full hop list at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity. Good luck!  See you tomorrow for more Mayan antics.  Hugz.
