I've Got It All Together

Hey Oddballs!  It's EK from ekgorman designs and I am sneaking into let you know I've got a new coloring video up.

Today I am playing around with the digital stamp IMG81 Witch Sassy & Sissy Cat and some black cardstock.  Did you know that you can print your digital stamps onto black cardstock?  That's right, you can!


Today I am using my new colored pencils to really make this image pop out on some dark cardstock.

To help everyone see how I this process of coloring on dark cardstock works, I went ahead and whipped up a little video sharing my coloring techniques.  To pop over to my channel and see the video in HD, click here.







Thanks for popping in today and checking out my project.  Make sure if you play around with some dark cardstock that you share your projects with Lizzy and the team over on the Facebook!

Hello Oddballs


It´s me, Tina: 

Today I would like to remind you of our ATC Swap, as well as our Blog Challenge

I used the image # 398, printed it on coloring paper, tailored to the S8 and colorized with Polychromos
The background was wiped with stamping pads in blue, yellow and green and
then stamped these funny curls in colorful and black.

July ATC Reminder

Hey Oddballs, it's that time of the month again, when we encourage you to submit your ATCs for our monthly swap.  For July, entries close on 23rd July and are allocated on 24th July by our Host for July Tina Focking.

Here is my ATC inspiration:


In this set, I have made another ATC Coin, they are fun to make and I think they look so cute.  I think I have made 8 now this month.  Now I have to work out which three I will put in the swap, but maybe the others will join them in their journeys.  Although I do like my coins, they would look good in my ATC folder, but I won't be greedy. They are meant to be gifted, so they will go too.

I hope I have encouraged you to join our swap.  There is still time.  All the details of where you can purchase the images I have used are on my personal blog and don't forget whenever you are buying Oddball stamps at https://www.oddballartco.com/shop use my discount code for a further 10% off your order.

Lazy Louise

Hey Oddballs,

Today's post comes with some inspiration for our July blog challenge - Optional Twist "Dots and Doodles".  I have used IMG#121 Lazy Louise N Bath Time Bubble Friends mainly because of the dots on the bath and the bubbles.  This time I have coloured the image with Prismacolors, still learning to use them, but quite happy how I have created softness with the pastel shades.


Don't forget this is inspiration for you to enter our July challenge, there is still plenty of time.

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 
Clean-And-Simple 
Card


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!

I'm glad if you liked my cards and 
also about a comment from you.


See you soon...
