Makes for Men Cards in the Making Card Magazine - Issue July ´18 with Pixie Pete

Hello Oddballs

It´s me, Tina:  Finally I can show you my cards which I created for the July issue of Making Cards.
I used the Oddball Image # 306 for all cards and then designed each one differently. 

Here I have created the background with watercolor paints and
Pete here and on all other cards with Polychromos colored.
This card is a so-called CAS Card
what means 

Many of you know that I enjoy making steampunk cards.
And so the snail Pete had to be on this card, too.

Here I gave all them a rusty look, used small metallic and riveted bricks and 
many metal gears and other metal ornaments. 
I also put Pete a cylinder on and changed the shell.

In the near future you will also find my video tutorial 
how to make the riveted bricks on our

And because Making Cards from my cards has made a men's topic...

"Makes for men"

...did not fit my 3rd card in pink in the magazine.

Nevertheless, I would like to show you!

This is Pixie Pete in pink and with flowers.
Just a real girl card ...

I liked it wonderfully; 
but it is just not a men card 
and now on the way to Lizzy Love, 
as a belated birthday greeting!

July Challenge Reminder

Hey Oddballs!  It's EK, from ekgorman designs here and I'm wondering something.

Have you played along yet with the current July Challenge happening here at Oddball Art?  If not what are you waiting for?  There are potentially free digital stamps available just for participating.

The theme for the challenge is always an Anything Goes Challenge, but with the optional theme this month of Dots and Doodles.  Want a chance to win even more digital stamps, then play along with the theme and use an Oddball Art Digital stamp.

I am playing with a new digital stamp added to the shop at the top of the month just for this theme.  The digi IMG#448 Pineapple Doodles Spooky Sweet appears to be a sweet pineapple stamp at first glance, but if you look just a little closer, you will see the amazing oddball twist thrown in.

I printed the digital stamp just as it comes when you down load it, to show how cute this image would be as a one layered card.  I colored all the pineapples up with my copics, trying to add some shadows into add a little dimension despite the card being one layered.

To add some more visual interest to the card, I added a burst of color around the edges using Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide and then a little splash of Worn Lipstick.

Thanks so much for peaking in at my challenge card.  Don't forget to add your card up by the end of the month for your chance to be picked as one of the random winners.  

Need a new digital stamp to play with, then please feel free to use the code DTEK10 to get 10% off your next purchase!
