Some Odd Girl ~ Back to School with Scientist Tia

Hello Friends,

Today I would love to introduce you to a spunky little gal named "Scientist Tia" She has been playing in the laboratory and is learning lots of new and exciting things. Lets take a look...

I think Tia is ready to head back to school, don't you? This fun card design was created focusing on the piece of patterned paper I found in my stash. It was the only piece that I could find to fit into my "back to school" vision. So here we are, and Tia is having a blast.

I have colored Scientist Tia using the following Copic markers:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: YR02, YR04, YR09
Clothes etc.: C1, C2, C3, B12, B14, BG000, BG01. BG02, BG05, Y21, Y23, Y26, YG13, YG61, YG63

I have used Crafter's Companion Dies for the card shape and letters. Papers used were from  Creative Imaginations and Bazzil card stock. 

I fussy cut Tia out, then I popped her up using foam squares. Here is a closer look at the entire image itself....


She has been colored to coordinate with the "scientific" paper...hahaha. I did say I like challenges right? But it wasn't until I added glossy accents to her glasses did I finally feel like she was finished. Check it out...

Tia is a keeper that is for sure! She will be perfect to grab and color for that favorite teacher or she could even be made into a mad scientist for Halloween. I focused on back to school since Halloween is still a bit away. you can find "Scientist Tia in the Some Odd Girl Online Store.

Hugs! Melanie

LDRS Creative ~ Ruby Celebration

Welcome back friends,
I am here today with a project featuring LDRS Creative stamps & Dies.  I have colored up the Polkadoodle's stamp titled "Ruby Celebration" . She is beautiful and ready for a party!

LDRS Creative Supplies Used:

As you can see below I have had some fun with dies and paper. For the sentiment I used the center negative pieces from the starburst die along with hand cut "tickets" from the paper pack to create this collage. 

I have colored this stamped image using Alcohol markers. You can see a close up photo below showing the detail in the stamp along with the coloring.

Lastly I have fussy cut the image and used foam squares to pop her up as the focal of my card design.

Thank you for stopping by. If you would like to check out Our Facebook Group for more inspiration we would love to have you join in the fun. I hope you have a blessed day.

Some Odd Girl ~ Breezy Mae

Hello Followers,

How are each of you today? I have an elegant card to share with you today. This is Breezy Mae and she is a digital stamp by Some Odd Girl.

I choose this stamp to work with because of her beautiful dress. I always like a challenge and this stamp challenged me.

I have colored her using Copic markers in the following colors:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: Y21, Y23, Y26
Dress: B23m B24, B26, B28, B29

Her dress also glimmers but it does not show in the photo. I used a Sparkle pen for that along with shaped dies, both by Crafter's Companion.

Here is one last look. Have you had a chance to check out the SOG Facebook Community? It is filled with inspiration using these beautiful stamps. Check it out HERE!

I hope I have encouraged you to be crafty today, Thank you for visiting! Melanie
