New Release - Steampunk Sally IMG380

Hi Oddballs - Angie here with another Inspiration Post for New Releases.

I am using Steampunk Sally IMG380.



What a sweetie! and how cute to have a pet Octopus!!!

Coloured with copic markers.
I created my Journal Page background using my Gelli Plate with assorted paints and stencils.
I then added some stamps using Impress Jet Black ink.
The Halloween Sentiment comes with Sally so it was just perfect to use.
I think Sally and her Octopus pet could be used for any project really, very cute.

Oddball New Release in the Making Cards Magazine October


Hello Oddballs

It´s me; TinaI'm so excited...

Today I can finally tell you about my first publication in "Making Cards Magazine"
I chose Oddball's pictures,
what Lizzy has drawn especially for me.

"Sneek Peak"

Kein automatischer Alternativtext verfügbar.

The topics I have chosen by myself are Halloween and Steampunk
First, I introduce you to the Halloween cards.
(Attention: flood of images)

The coffin card


Here I designed the background with Brusho Colors and
a silver spider net stamped in silver.
The image is colored with polychromos

"Megan Macabre"
#382A




Purple Halloween


Again, I used Brusho Colors for the background and 
then structurecream applied with an stencil.
The image is colored with polychromos


#382B




Orange Halloween
This background has also been created with Brusho Colors on Glossy Paper and
then I sprayed black ink spray over it.
The image is colored with polychromos

#382A



Now go to my Steampunk cards


Dark Danger Card


Here I have glued aluminum tape to cardboard,
it is embossed and dyed with alcohol inks.
I colored the image on kraft paper.
I find that looks particularly interesting.
#380B


The edges and letters were painted a bit with rust paint




Bright Danger Card 

For this background, I used a design paper from La Blanche.
This image is colored with polychromos


#380A


The wooden letters are painted in gold



I hope you like my cards and I'm curious,
As they will look in the magazine.
The new Oddball Images can be found in Lizzy's Shop
