Some Odd Girl ~ Laptop Toby

Welcome Back Friends,

Today I am here to share my Son's 21st. birthday card. I am using the Some Odd Girl "Laptop Toby" Digital image. My son Zachary is a gamer and his favorite color is blue. It is so hard to find good images for Men. This is such a great image to use for all of those masculine cards!!!


I kept the card design pretty simple and let the image speak for itself. With just a couple of designer papers and dies I was able to create this card pretty quickly.
Here is a close up of Laptop Toby to show my coloring up close. I used Alcohol markers to color this fun digi.

Here is one last look at today's card. If you are not already visiting Some Odd Girl on Facebook click HERE to join our Facebook Community. We would love to inspire you on a daily basis :-)
Hugs, Melanie

Some Odd Girl ~ Leaf Magic

Welcome Friends!

Today I have a clean and simple card to share with you. I decided to coordinate my Some Odd Girl Leaf Magic Fairy stamp to my background paper for a fun flowing card. After-all she is flying through the sky with the birds.  

 

You can purchase the Leaf Magic Fairy Stamp by visiting the Some Odd Girl Online Store. Simply CLICK HERE! 


 Here is a close up photo showing off Leaf Magic's glittery wings. All Fairies need glitter wings don't you think?



I have colored this little fairy using my Copic Markers and the wings were embellished with Spectrum Noir Glitter Pens. Want to see more??? Join the Some Odd Girl Facebook Community. See you there! Hugs, Melanie

Some Odd Girl ~ Butterfly Friend Fairy

Hello Friends,

I have a super fun card to share with all of you today. I am using the Butterfly Friend Fairy stamp by Some Odd Girl. She was such fun to color!



For the background I used fun stencils and stamps by Crafter's Companion to create this fairy scene. I love how the branch part of the stencil turned out. I inked it completely with light brown ink to begin then I gently touched a darker brown ink in various areas of the stamp to make it look more realistic. It was quite fun!


Here is a close up showing my coloring. I colored her with Copic markers.




One last look.... Do you belong to our Some Odd Girl Community over on Facebook? If not CLICK on over and join us for daily inspiration.

Until next time my friends... Hugs, Melanie

Here is my personal card for today's FALL theme.  I have used the Garden Wreath die set along with the Cardinal Seasons Stamps and dies for the sentiment. The paper is from the Sweater Weather 6x6" paper pad. See all the links below.

LDRS Creative's Supply List: 



The Garden Wreath die set comes in two pieces. I have die cut it using both dies onto my green striped paper and then cut the wreath a few times out of other fall colors. Then I just pieced a few pieces inlaid into the wreath and other leaves I attached on top to give added dimension.
