May Oddball Challenge Winner


Welcome back to Oddball Land! 

Our May Oddball Challenge has come to a close and...

we have some winners to announce tonight!


I have good news and I have bad news....lets start with the good news!

Good news....we hit 19 entries for May which means we unlocked those TOP 3 prizes and have 4 winners to announce tonight!

Bad news.....  I made an offer with the May Challenge that if we hit 50 entries I would do another craft supply grand prize for June, so obviously we weren't able to make that happen. 

I would love to hear feedback from anyone who might have some suggestions to bring in those participants, leave your ideas in the comments below and I will read everyone!

And one last thing before we announce those winners....I am still waiting to hear from our April Grand Prize winner of the Copic marker sets.... today is the deadline, I have decided to make this last public call out to get her attention, if I have not heard from her by the time the June Challenge is posted tomorrow, I will announce the new winner for April grand prize tomorrow with the new challenge!

Now without further ado.......


Our Grand Prize Winner for May chosen by random number generator was entry #7




and out TOP 3 winners chosen by my man ADAM.....






Please contact Lizzy Love by June 30 2019 to claim your prizes!

Just remember to check the box reduce the size if you are posting to the sidebar of your own blogs.

Hello everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend and start to a new week. Today, I want to share this month's featured Ambassador with all of you. Someone who has been working, through many personal situations, to still do what she loves and being smiles.

Claudia Martina is a fierce creator.  She puts her all in everything she does, and toy can tell by looking at her finished makes.
I wanted to highlight this wonderful message board she created using the May Monthly exclusive image. I love the soft colors and layers.

Thank you, Claudia for this adorably creepy cute design!
You can see more of Claudia Martins by visiting the design team feature on the OddBall website,  where you can find all her social media accounts. Make sure to follow her for more inspiration.

Happy crafting,
Eny Dunn

Creepy Cute Chronicles #54

EK Gorman, Oddball Art CCC54 a
It is Friday, so that means it is time for a new Creepy Cute Chronicles newsletter over at Oddball Art!  Today, I am playing with this week's CCC digital stamp, but blowing it up have and mounting it onto a 8x10 inch wood canvas.

IMG_5941
To give you perspective of how large I blew up the Red's Pet Wolf digi, I put a full size Distress ink case there.

IMG_5942
Then using my copics, I colored both Red...

IMG_5943
...And her pet wolf.  I am not crazy about the coloring on the wolf, but by the end of the canvas the coloring work.

IMG_5944
I fussy cut out both of the image and set them aside while I build the background of the canvas.

IMG_5946
I scraped on some black metallic acrylic paint onto my wooden canvas.

IMG_5945
I die cut three panels of trees, and sprayed them with both a matte and a glittery spray ink.  I repeated the process with panels of grass cut out and gray, glittery black and green glitter spray ink.

IMG_5947
Using soft matte gel, I adhered the trees onto the canvas, letting there be texture with the gel.  I also added the grass to the canvas with the same gel.

IMG_5948
I then added the digital stamps onto the canvas.  I could have quit here and been happy with the end result, but I wanted to build the canvas up more.

IMG_5949
So to build up the canvas, I pulled out metal crafting pieces, wire, paper flowers, art stones and more black acrylic paint an built up the bottom of the canvas with fun layers.

IMG_5950
I really like how the texture built up the final look of the canvas.

IMG_5951
Finally, I added a fun sentiment to the final product.
