Wobbling Witch! Card Cover feat OddBall Art

Hello ghouls and goblins!

As we get closer to Halloween, my creativity goes in to high gear! Today I wanted to create this fun card cover using OddBall Art IMG#478 Witchy Legs, Skirt and Broom! It's one of last weeks newest releases and I can't say enough great things about this one! So many possibilities and ways to create.
I have been wanting to create more interactive cards,  but lacking the time (and let's be honest, patience) to sit down and create a truly elaborate card. So, I got one of my Action Wobble stickers and let these witchy legs have some fun!


I share the entire coloring process and details on a video I have posted on my YouTube channel

And before I forget, starting tonight, up until Halloween OddBall is having a 20%off sale on all stamps! So make sure to visit the website and while you're there, sign up for the newsletter! 

Happy crafting,

Happy Haunting Zombie ATC

Welcome everyone to another fun and spooky project using OddBall Art Stamps Image #441 Creepy Cute Zombie Reboot Moonbeam Apocalypse.  ATC's are always a fun way to get back in the groove of crafting. They push your creativity, by allowing you to use different mediums, in a comfortable setting. Even if you've never created an artist trading card, there's no wrong way of doing one. You can mix and match images, use inks or paint, stencil or die cuts...the sky's the limit!



 What I find the most fun about ATC's , is that i can "force" myself" to focus on main theme and image, and build a scene or add embellishments around that. For this year's Halloween color scheme, i decided to go with non-traditional, Victorian era shades of color. That was becoming a problem for papers and images, until i stumbled upon a planner digital supply page. ATArtDigital had the right colors, images and theme for this project. i colored my main image with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, making sure everything coordinated.


I was able to fussy cut some cool "zombie eyeball flowers" from one of the digital papers, and created layers to add some depth to my background. I adhered our zombie girl friend on a strip of black cardstock to keep the focus on her, and finished my piece with some fun enamel accents.



I love how this project turned out. Proof that even soft colors can make Halloween crafts "pop"! What project would you make? Make sure to visit the OddBall Art shop and Facebook page.

Grave Mysteries: OddBall Art Halloween Gift Tag

Hello everyone and welcome to the first of my spooky OddBall shares. For today's project, I created this gift tag using image #80 Creepy Cute Girl On Pumpkin Clarissa Creating tags for any holiday is always fun, and if you're like me, any day is an occasion to gift someone something special and handmade.




When i first saw this image, I knew i wanted to use a background scene. Something that would help the image pop right off the page, but also bring the overall theme together. I went to Pinterest and searched for "graveyard coloring pages", and this was the winner. By coloring both my background and my main image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, i was able to mix and blend color combos and shades to create my desired look.


A fun and spooky sentiment, some sparkle and the quintessential black cat; my tag is ready for a creepy cute gift this Halloween. How would you use this image?

Remember to visit the OddBall Art shop and facebook page for tons of fun images and inspiration from Oddies across the globe! Once you find the images you want to use in your next project, use coupon code DTENY10 for 10% off your purchase!
