Alice the Artist

Hey Oddballs!  It's EK here today sharing a little bit of coloring on some kraft paper.  Kraft paper is such a fun way to create a card that is a little different and yet shows color in such a gorgeous way.

For this project, I printed out IMG381 Alice the Artist onto some kraft paper.  Then using my copics, I colored in Alice. Finally, using my white colored pencils, I colored in the canvas and hand wrote in the sentiment.

For more on this project, check out the write up I created that inspired today's project over on my page!

Choose to See the Good

Hey Oddballs!!!  EK here to remind you about the challenge happening here!

I've created a project using this month's theme challenge theme "Goblins, Fairies and Ghouls, Oh My", however did it without using a traditional goblin, fairy, or ghoul digital image.

Instead, I pulled out a perfectly "normal" image, IMG13 Stormy, and zombified it.


Then, after turning our big eyed girl green, and giving her some new stitches, I went crazy with my copics and created a stormy background.

Want to zombify your own image for this month's challenge, using the code DTEK10 to get 10% off your purchase!

Tutorial: Lucy Got Bit on a Dark Shirt



Hello Oddballs

I´m back, Tina: Today I show you, as promised, the image transfer to a dark t - shirt. I used today a brand new image from Lizzy: "Reboot Lucy Got Bit" #440 
Also in the new shop you get with my discount code 10% off on your next purchase! DTTINA10

1.
Print the image, which to be ironed on the shirt,  
on plain paper and color it to your liking. I used alcohol markers for this.

2.
Now scan the finished colorized picture.
Then open the scanned image in your graphics program and
edit it the way you want to see it on your T-shirt.
I have chosen a large circle,
because the transfer paper for dark textiles
remains white at the unprinted areas after ironing.
For the background I have used 1 of the great,
new digital papers by Oddball.
"Space Skulls No.8"
More on that later...

3.
Now we need the transfer paper for dark textiles.
IMPORTANT! Here the motive is not mirrored!

4.
Now print the image on the transfer paper
and let it dry for 30 minutes.

5.
Now cut exactly on the edge.


6.
On the back is the carrier paper. (Red checkered)
Remove this carefully.

7.
Now you choose a place on your T-shirt,
where the image should go and place it there with the picture upwards.

8.
Before ironing, it must the heat resistant paper placed over the image.

9.
Set the iron to the highest level.
Now in circular movements with constant pressure
iron for about 90 seconds.
Make sure that all corners and edges are reached.

10.
Once the heat resistant paper is cold,
you can subtract it carefully.
You can wash your shirt only after 24 hours inside out and max at 40°C


Yay...
And now you have a gorgeous Shirt 
Congrats :-)


Here is mine: 


I have also brought again up the shop logo of Oddball on the front.


Little tip for last:
If you make a mistake while ironing or your image is oblique,
then lay up the heat resistant paper again, hot iron and
immediately remove the paper again.
So with little luck, the picture sticks to it and can be detached from the shirt.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 
And now I want to introduce you to Lizzy's new digital paper.
It will be available from June in the shop;
but I'll give you a glimpse of it now.
It is a set of 10 different designs.

"Space Skulls 10 pc Digital Paper"


I hope to see you at our Blog Challenge



See you soon...

Zombie Girl in colorful on the T-Shirt



Hello Oddballs


Who would have thought that we would see each other so soon ...
Here I am again, Tina: But I already announced it. Now I'll show you my 2nd attempt to bring an Oddball image on a light blue 
t-shirt. This is one of my favorite images"Zombie Girl" #50And how i do this, i will explain you under the photos. 

                                  
    The saying is not part of the image

  
Here I first printed the image on paper and colored it with Alcohol Marker.
Then scanned, adjusted the size for the T-shirt, mirrored
and then printed on the transfer foil for light T-shirts.
Looks great, right?


For the back I used again the shop logo and
 my design team badge.

So I'm totally in love with my shirt.

Hey, and now have a look in the new shop ...
There you will find so many great images, which also want on your t - shirt ...

Every Road Should Have a Path

Hey Oddballs!  Ek here today to share a little bit of coloring with you.  

No video today, just a little bit of coloring for fun along with the digital stamp

The digital stamp was colored with my copics and then cut out and added to some printed paper that I distressed with some metallic wax.  Finally, I added a bit of a sentiment from a Tim Holtz sentiment sticker pack.

For more on the making of this card check out my page ekgorman designs.

Madhatter on Shirt


Hello Oddballs


Hi, it´s me. Tina.  Today I once tested something special. A dear friend gave me the idea to print / iron an oddball image on my pink T-shirt with transfer foil. I chose this image: "Madhatter"#328.
For this I printed the image on transfer foil and mirrored upside down ironed. I wrote the lettering myself and placed it under the motif. 
Use my discount code to get 10% off your next purchase: DTTINA10


I used the Oddball Shop logo for the back side at the neckline


Oh, how I love my shirt ....

 * 💗 * 

This time the motif is still black.
But I will test it again in colorized.


See you soon...


Tina
