An Oddball Halloween

challenge banner
Hey Oddballs...its EK and I am popping in to remind you that there is still time to play with the current challenge over at Oddball Art.  Since it is October and the high holly days at Oddball (aka Halloween) it is the challenge is the perfect theme...Monsters on Parade.
EK Gorman, Oddball Art Challenge reminder a
Today I am using IMG 106 Halloween Candy Corn and IMG406 Halloween Ghouls to create my Halloween themed card.

EK Gorman, Oddball Art Challenge reminder c
I colored the images up with my copic makers and fussy cut them out.  Then using some halloween themed printed paper, I created a fun spooky themed background for my candy corn and ghosts to had out on.  I also love the piece of halloween themed ephemera that I found to add as a sentiment for this project.

I also added a few drops of glow in the dark Nuvo Drops, because who doesn't want their halloween cards to glow in the dark.

EK Gorman, Oddball Art Challenge reminder d
This isn't a great photo, but you can sort of see how the drops are glowing!

EK Gorman, Oddball Art Challenge reminder b
I really can't wait to see how you play with this month's theme.  Until then, Happy Crafting!

Caroline & Petey in a Tree


Hello everyone!

Today I bring you an Interactive Swing Card, which is very simple and easy to do (with or without die) in which I used the img# 195Printable Stamp Caroline & Petey in a Tree.




If you have the die, you only have to pass through your die cutting machine the parts corresponding to the swing, the triangle and the circular stop of the balancing mechanism and the foliage of the tree. If you do not have the die, make a small equilateral cardboard triangle approximately 1¼ inch sideways. In one of the vertices make a hole about 3/8 in diameter. Die or cut a circle about ½ inch that will make a stop. On another card, make the shape of a swing (one strip for the seat and two for the strings, as thin as you can). The strings will be stuck in the triangle, so make sure they are not very separate. Trim or punch, too, a cardboard shaped like a tree foliage. When you have these four pieces, you will be ready to make your card.




Color and trim your digi and "sit down it" on the swing. Color and trim your digi and "sit down it" on the swing. I painted my doll with my alcohol markers and took advantage of the fact that I was sitting on a tree branch, to use part of it as a swing seat.




Glue the strips of the swing to the base of the triangle (leaving the hole at the top) and prepare the base of your card decorating the bottom. In my case, with a stencil and blue ink, I made a cloud background.




It’s the turn to mount the mechanism. Calculate how high you have to hang your swing so that it doesn't get out of the card. Mark it with a pencil and paste at that point a circle of double-sided tape with foam, 3d foam dots or plastic bumpers that are sold for this type of cards (I don't know the name, I'm sorry). Once this is done, hang the swing and check that it swings. If it works well, paste the circle that you will have cut as a stop. Then we just have to finish gluing the “tree” that will cover the mechanism with two layers of double-sided tape with foam. Be careful not to hinder the proper functioning of the card. Glue on the sides and as far as the mechanism allows, on top of the "tree."

Check that everything works correctly and you will have your Interactive Swing Card.




I hope you like it, inspire you and publish your creations with the hashtag #creepycutechronicles. Remember that you have at your disposal the discount code DTIRENE10 so that you buy many digis in the Oddball Art Co. store

See you soon!

Moes Broken Heart...

 Here is another Creepy Cute stamp from Oddball Art Stamps.
Moes Broken Heart from the Creepy Cute Chronicles. It is in a yearly Subscription of $15 and you can download 70+ images and there are added weekly.
So I colord poor Moe with the Spectrum Noir Ilustrator and Original alcohol markers.
You see all the colors used in the pictures.


And my finished card. I made the background with the Spectrum Noir Harmony Water reactive ink pads. The sentiment is from the Sara's Signature Enchanted Christmas stamp and die set.

The Boo Crew

You will see a more detailed post also on my blog
Calling All Crafters along with other posts you might like...

Recently I shared a few posts with you illustrating my altered box:



Today I have made a quartet of ATCs to go inside:





For this inspirational make
I have used images from  The Jones Family Halloween coloured with a Copic markers, and cut out. For the ATC bases,  I have used scraps from my stash and a paper from 
Spooky Hollows, with Seedless Preserves Distress ink around the edges.
I added skull buttons to each ATC as a skull is the Oddball signature.

MYRA MANES. THE SILENCE

Hi!!!!

New collaboration with Oddball Art Stamps!


In this case one of the last images designed by Lizzy, image # 124, colored with Copic in gray tones.


I used a Tim Holtz chipboard for Halloween as if it were a crypt, behind I put Finnabair "Red Amber" Icing paste that I let it dry on a Stamperia mold and to highlight it I hit it with Wax "Brushed Iron".

I have finished my scene with leaves, a spider web and the title.

A treat for you

Hi everyone!

Today I bring you the tutorial of this card made with this week's freebie CCC 73 Poison Petunias, which you will have on your mails this night if you are subscribed to the Oddball newsletter






I have also used the IMG #476 Digital Stamp FortuneTellers Circus Magic Glass Ball Pastel Goth and #199 Spooky Book Stack colored with my alcohol markers and the collection of digital papers Pick your Poison




Then I made a template in white cardboard, drawing the shape of a round table. Once done I transferred it to a garnet cardboard and gave shadows with the markers.





I cut out a white cardboard base



And made a background with Distress Ink: Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot inks 




I glued the elements to the colored base highlighting some pieces 





I cut out the base of the card and a second layer of the digital paper collection to contrast the scene and the base.



I sticked everything together



Finally, I added some details like a touch of shine on the bottle and on the ball with a Winks of Stella marker and Glossy Accents 



I hope you like it inspire you and encourage you to make your own creations that we will love to see in the hashtag #creepycutechronicles
