Creepy Holidays


Hello Oddballs


It´s me - Tina: For our challenge in December with the theme Christmas Lights I used a mix of different files for my card. 


The following DigiStamps were processed here. Cute Zombie Giraffe #146 / Fran Tick & Dave the BAt #273 and  Hanging Around the Holidays #277


I spatted the structure paste the background on kraft paper, put on a couple of paper sheets and painted all of them with acrylics in green, gray, and black. A piece of bakery knit wrapped and then the attached motifs. I dyed them with polychromos.


And now I would like to see many of your great works at the Challenge.

New Release - Jenny Has the Cure IMG412

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



Oh Hello! Isn't she just so sweet!

Coloured with copic markers.
I have used safety pin washi tape to create a top and bottom border instead of using a second card mat of patterned paper. Washi tape is very versatile and you don't need much on your projects.

Creeping in the Cemetery with Suzi

Hello All,
Today it is my pleasure to share with you my latest creation in my large Art Journal.  I've used one of my favourite spooky images by Lizzy, the wonderful 'Bride of Frankenstein'


My background was covered with Black Gesso, then I added some patches of colour with my Gelatos, before adding the main image.  The Bride of Frankenstein is coloured with Alcohol Markers and Faber-Castell PITT Pens.  I Sketched my background scene in with Derwent Inktense Pencil, then added a little water to soften the lines; I then added all the dark details and shadows in with the Faber-Castell PITT Pens.  To finish the page I went around the edges of the page with a dark PITT Pen.

That's all from me for now, Don't forget you still have lots of time to join in our 'Cemetries' themed challenge.

Bye for now
Suzi
