Writing Speech Bubble Sentiments Letter to Mom... or not


Hello everybody!

Today I share with you this inspiration card made with the digital stamp Img #377 Writing Speech Bubble Sentiments Letter to Mom and I show you how to use a stamp of one theme in another completely opposite.

This girl who wrote a letter for the Mothers' Day, has gone on to become a student waiting for September to pass.




The background is made with a stencil and the Worm Lipstick Distress Ink. The table is drawn directly on the cardboard with alcohol markers. 



The window is cut with a die and the blue sky clouds masking the area before inking.



The doll is painted with alcohol markers.

Cute Big Eye Penelope IMG#3

You will see this post also on my blog
Calling All Crafters along with other posts you might like...

For this inspirational make
I have used the image Cute Big Eye Penelope #3 coloured with real brush pens, and cut out.




The background is a piece of yupo paper cut to fit a square kraft card blank and then with alcohol inks applied.
I am on holiday in Australia for a couple of months, staying with my daughter. We decided to play with some alcohol inks!



First we painted the yupo paper with alcohol - this is just rubbing alcohol from the local chemist - then we dripped alcohol inks onto this.


You can see my background in this picture of me - I used brown, yellow, and orange Tim Holtz inks, finally dripping more of the clear alcohol to make the 'bubbles'.



I then added the image:





Finally I added two of the stickers that were from one of the workshops at the recent retreat I went on with UK Stampers Network


The background is Distress Oxides on a self adhesive sheet of paper.
Once the backgrounds were coloured we then passed them around and all participants stamped a favourite sentiment on them until they returned to the beginning.
They were then ready to cut out and be used...


My card is inspired by the current Oddball July challenge Glow in the Dark Daydreams



Happy Crafting!

Creepy Cute Chronicles #62:Jolly Bear


Hi everybody! I’m Irene and this is my first tutorial as a OddballArt Stamps DT. I’m very happy to be here.

For this my first project I used this week freebie image, CCC #62 Jolly Bear, which you will have on your mails this night if you are sucribed to the Oddball newsletter. 


I also used too the digital stamp Zombie Graveyard Inmortal Love (img #368) and the Bee Happy Spring Flowers, Bees and Sentiment (img #534), all of them colored with alcohol markers.



I coloured the grass of the background and the little bear with the stippling tecnique. 


And I made the sky with Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet Distress Inks, using my makeup brushes (LOL) and masking with a post-it the graveyard. And I went over the white edges with ink and a cotton swab.



I cuted de flowers of the img 534 for use only a couple in my card. So that they did not stand out too much, I went over the edges with one of the markers I used for the grass.


I wrote the sentiment with black gel pen.
