It's my life


Hi everyone!

This time I made a decorative block to my craft room. 
 
I kept couple cardboard blocks that were in a box to protect furniture I ordered and finally I figured out what I could do with them 😊


 

I used Oddball image#93 Big Eye Chibi Girl With Speech Bubble and coloured it with alcohol markers. I covered the block with clear gesso and stone-effect paste. Then I attached the image with gel medium. I also added some black and pearlescent green acrylic paint because I didn't want the background to be too grey. Finally I added text stripes.


 

I don't know yet what I'm gonna do the other side of the block, but this works for now 😊

The more the merrier!


Happy crafting!

BFF: Best Freaks Forever!

Hello

In today's tutorial I am going to show you how to make a card with the freebie version of the CCC154 Spooky Sweet Life that you can still get in the Oddball Stamps store.


It is very simple and fast to do.

To begin, as always, we will color and cut out the stamp.


On a white cardboard panel we will draw a comic vignette like the ones used when there is a blow or some noise. We will contour with a black marker and another color of our choice.

We will draw a shadow with the same black marker.

For the background, with a grayish tone we will draw some rays that come out of our vignette


And finally we will color the background

For all this, I used some markers from the Tiger store, which are cheap and with very strong colors, ideal to give the card a comic look.

Already, finally, I printed the sentiment and pasted it next to the stamp on the panel


I hope you like it and inspire and encourage you to make your own creations.


I remind you that you have the discount code DTIRENE10 for your purchases in the Oddball Stamps store and the hashtag #creepycutechronicles to share your work on the networks. 

See you!

Card "So Fabulous" by Roberta Cercato

 


Hello everyone!
Here I am again with another colorful Oddball art project
To make this nice card I used the digital stamp Mermaid of the stars n. 443:
first I printed it on cardboard suitable for use with acool markers and then colored it with Spectrum Noir Classique.


The background is always the funniest part ....
I really like "messing" with colors and observing how they mix together, giving life to ever-changing shades!
In this case I used different shades of Distress Ink Spray, I waited for them to dry and then I put here and there some abstract stamps; finally with a stencil and white chalk I created some relief writings.
I really like the final effect .... isn't it "fabulous"?


See you soon with other colorful projects!

Just Say NO to Cannabis Arrests!

 Good morning everyone!  Jenn here today and I decided to play with this adorable image called Big Eye 420 Girl with Sentiments/Princess of Pot No. 388.  I love these papers from Jen Hatfield - they go perfectly with this image, don't they?


I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and some alcohol markers.  I fussy cut the images and then just used the images and papers to create the card, very simple but I love how this one came out.  

Cannabis has been my passion since I was a teenager and if you had told me back then that my husband and I would end up owning/running one of the biggest cannabis competitions/tradeshows on the East coast some day... I would have giggled.  LOL  The Harvest Cup is a true labor of love and we are so proud to be celebrating our 5th anniversary this year.  However, until cannabis arrests stop happening EVERYWHERE, there is still much work to be done.  No one should be sitting in jail or having their life ruined over a plant.  And on that note... hope you are all having a great Summer!  Peace.

Samson, the little dog

 


This is today's post for Oddball Art Co 


Our Oddball theme for July 2021 is 

FREE TO BE ME!


I needed a Birthday card for someone who is fond of little dogs - so I started playing with
but just using Samson.

First, I just made an ATC with various scraps of card from my stash.
I trimmed the image to size and I coloured it with markers.


I then used a similar motif on the following Birthday card.
The sketch is a challenge in the UK Stampers Network.
I used layers of different card from my stash.
The sentiment is a Happy Little Stampers stamp.

Get Over It!

 Well good morning and happy Saturday!  Jenn here today and we're on, like, day 42 of rain or something ridiculous like that but at least it doesn't rain alllllll day.... just enough to make it impossible to make any plans at all!  LOL  Luckily, I have card-making to keep me busy when I'm stuck at home! I love this color combo - image is from the CCC #151 Life is Yummy set, colored with Blick alcohol markers then fussy-cut and adhered with some dimensional foam dots:


Papers are from Doodlebug Designs and I added a sentiment sticker and a little skull die-cut (both from Tim Holtz).   I outlined the orange box with black Stickles and edged the entire card with black ink.  Have a great weekend! Peace.
