Simple Poinsettia

Hello everyone!
 
Hope you are having a great Halloween weekend. Though my post isn't Halloween themed, I'm looking for Christmas now..
 
Polkadoodles launched new stamp sets! There's poinsettia, gnomes, bunnies and penguins. All are awesome and so cute! They are now able to pre-order, expected shipping date is 6th November, so pretty soon.

I love this new Merry Christmas Poinsettia Holiday stamp set. It's so versatile, including many different stamps. 
 
I wanted to create simple card and I think it looks beautiful as the way it is.

Tutorial - Trick or treat card with alcohol inks

Hello everyone and happy Halloween!

Here is my newest card using awesome new CCC 128 This is Halloween image. Isn't the image so cute and inspiring?! 
 

 

I also made you a tutorial how to do this card, so here we go..



So, grab synthetic paper and alcohol inks and start creating. Remember that the smell is pretty intensive, so make sure you have good ventilation.

1. Hold the paper upright and trickle the alcohol ink from over part (picture 1).

2. Do the same thing with multiple colours (picture 2).

3. Turn the paper (lower side up) and do the same thing with colours you like (picture 3).

4. Put the paper down and add some extender. 

5. Put the baking paper (or similar) over the ink paper and smooth it with your hand (picture 4).

6. Take the baking paper away and the background is ready (picture 5). If you want you can do steps 4-6 multiple times.



Here is another technique (I used these both at my card):

1. Use some extender on your synthetic paper (I used spray bottle).

2. Drop various colours of alcohol inks to paper (picture 1).

3. Take a straw and blow the inks from different sides (picture 2).

4. You can do these steps multiple times if you want. My final creation is shown on picture 3.

 


Then you need to colour the stamp.  I used this beautiful CCC 128 It is Halloween digistamp and some pumpkins from CCC 125 Spooky Season and Members October Exclusive image. I coloured those with Promarkers, PromarkerBrush's and Copics.

Here is the colours I used (C= Copics, P= Promarkers):

Skin: Cinnamon, Tan, Putty, Satin, Almond (all P).

Hat & top: green - G99 (C), Forest green (P), Bright green (P), Lime green (P), YG03 (C), YG00 (C).

Hat, top, pumpkins: orange - Burnt orange (P), YR07 (C), YR04 (C), YR02 (C), YR000 (C).

Pants: BV29, BV08, BV17, BV13, BV02 (all C).

Hair & banner: BV08, BV17, BV13, BV02 (all C).

Bats:  Black (P), C7 (C), Cool grey 3-5 (P).

 


When colouring is done, cut the images. 

If you want you can use cutting dies to make a frame (or something else) for you card.

Then just mix these all parts together and create your own card 😃

 


And here again is the result where I ended up.

 

 

 

Wow, there was so much information. I hope you understood everything. English isn't my native language, so sometimes it's hard to find the right words. If you have any guestions just let me know!  And I hope to see your creations too, please post them to Oddball facebook group so everyone can admire those!

 

Remember that with this code DTMER1 you can buy 2 digi stamps from Oddball Stamps and pay only one. The more the merrier!

 

And again HAVE A HAPPY (and little spooky) HALLOWEEN!

It's going to be a spooky night

Hello again!
 
I'm back again with Oddball stamps
 
At this card I used Members October exclusive set (which you get when you subscribe to Creepy Cute Chronicles) and CCC 127 Pumpkins Please. I coloured images with alcohol markers. That sweet puppy really inspired me and he turned out to be zombie/hell hound. Background I made with acrylic paints and gelli plate and grass and tree I just painted with gouache colours.

Bookmark

 Happy monday!

It's time for new Incy Wincy Designs Challenge. Our theme is Halloween/Autumn colours and our sponsors are Pattie's Creations and Oddball Art Co.

I used digi stamp Frankenstein #92 by Oddball and made a bookmark for my hubby. He loves to read horror stories so I think this suits well for him. 
 
On the background I have used stencil, pasta, Distress Oxides and different sprays (it's made earlier this year). Then I wanted to add something to ribbons too, so there is now eyes and spiders and BLOOD (acrylic paint), BUAHHAHHAAA.

Happy reading moments to everyone!
