Not only did I color up my first Halloween card, I did a fun little technique sharing how to back light a crowd. Instead of trying to explain it to you, I went ahead and whipped up a little video so you can just watch!
Thanks for peeking in today and checking out this years first Halloween card (my favorite card making season)!

Well Oddballs, Christmas in July is over, time to get organised for Christmas 2018. I have started my cards thanks to our theme this month - Lost Souls of Innocent Dolls. Innocent Dolls brought to mind all the dolls, little girls will be asking for this Christmas. Hope you like my cards.

Well it's about time I filled this part of my blog in. I am in my mid-sixties, there you go that comment will cover me for a few years yet. I am a wife, mother of 2 and grandmother of 7. I live in Narellan, an outer suburb now of Sydney, but it was out in the sticks you could say 46 years ago. I have always enjoyed most crafts and did Art in high school. When my children were growing up I didn't have too much time for it, although I did knit, as my husband was always away truckin'. Later I really got into it, first cardmaking and scrapbooking, collecting rubber stamps until I discovered that I could manage to work out Facebook. Then I could not get enough of digital stamps. As life gets a bit harder to cope with, I find my craft helps with my stress, yes I am a real stress-head! Hence I try not to over-commit to too many DTs but I do love the fact that someone does like what I do enough to ask me to join them on their team.
Well, why not? Did you know that there is a chance to win free digital stamps if you use an Oddball Digital stamps and play along with the theme? And lets be honest...lost souls of innocent dolls...that theme works with 90% of all the Oddball Art!
For this project I pulled out my copic markers and colored up my little zombie girl. To create a little bit of a sour skin tone I pulled out my E40, E41 and E42 to give her a little bit of that sickly tone.
Also I die cut out a panel in the card and added something that didn't make any since, an off white pineapple paper. Yes you are right, the panel is illogical, but I love the idea that this little lady is looking out to something beautiful, yet surreal, without creating a real window.
I finally added a Tim Holtz snarky sentiment sticker, because frankly, this is the speech my little angels give me each and every day when they get into a bit of trouble.
I am really looking forward to seeing what you do for the challenge. If you need a new digital stamp feel free to use the code DTEK10 to get 10% off your Oddball purchase!!!
