Hair Gel Card Video Tutorial with Molly the Mermaid & Fishies



Hello Oddballs

It´s me, Tina: Today I have again created a Hair Gel Card. And if you scroll down you will also find a video tutorial this time. I used this images Molly the Mischievous Mermaid #319 and Fishies #410.


Here I chose a bottle for the neckline,
because the mermaid wants to travel by bottle mail into space.
And she also has 3 sweet companions; her goldfishes.


The background is created with Distress Oxide and I
colored the images with Polychromos.


And this is how the card looks inside ...

Be Original

Hey Oddballs!  It's EK from ekgorman designs and I am slipping in today with a card I colored using some creative coloring.

Today I am playing around with the Oddball digital art IMG185 Batzilla and my color wheel to create a truly colorful card.


Not only did I pull out my copic markers today, but I pulled my pocket color wheel.  I wanted to play around with the skin tone on Batzilla, and venture into something a little different and fun.  Using my color wheel I decided on using a Tetrad of color, or four colors even spaced out.  I decided that violet skin might be fun, so jumped off with that color.  Lining up my wheel, I discovered the three other colors, red (which turned out too orange), yellow and green, would compliment everything.


The background got a couple more colors to fill in the blank space and give the card a bit of visual interest.  Also the card got a Tim Holtz sticker sentiment to finish off the card.


I am just loving all the color on my project today.  Do you ever use a color wheel to help come up with the color scheme of your project?  Make sure you share your projects over on the Oddball Art Facebook Gallery.

All I Hoped To Find

Hey Oddballs!  It's EK here sneaking in today to remind you that the current monthly challenge is underway!

This month the theme is "Mermaids from Outer Space", but as always that theme is optional.  The Design Team always loves seeing how you play with Oddball digital stamps, so make sure you load your design for a chance to randomly win a prize for participating.



Today I am playing with one of the new digital stamps from OddballIMG443 Mermaid of the Stars.


I colored the image up with my copic markers, making the decission to make my mermaid sea tinted green with seaweed inspired hair.  


I added color to the background with Black Soot Distress Oxide.  Then I splattered Spectrum Noir sparkle pen all over the card to create stars.  Finally, I added a sentiment from a Tim Holtz sentiment stick pack.


I can't wait to see what you add to the challenge.  If you need a new digi to play along this month, feel free to use the code DTEK10 to get 10% off your purchase.

Rawr!!!

Hey Oddballs!  Design Team Member, EK here today to share a little clean and simple card making.

One of the things I love most about Oddball Art is that the digital stamps stand on their own, and do not need all the bells and whistles to make a project that is special.  Just a couple of coloring pens or pencils and the digital stamps are enough to make a stunning project.

Today, I am proving that theory with the super cute (and one of the original) digi IMG16 Big Eye Girl In Monster Hood Teddy.


This image always reminds me a little with Mike and Sully (from Monsters), so I colored her up using a combination of teal blues and lime greens using my copics.  The teal shades were created with BG07, BG18 and BG78.  The lime tones were created with YG21, YG13 and YG06.

Yes, I ended up using a little bit of a line green matting, and a couple of green stickles, but the rest of the card is just the digital image colored.

Needing your own image to color up Clean and Simple, us the code DTEK10 to get 10% off your purchase!
