Hi everyone! Elle here again with another fun project to share.
We all know those moments when the creative mojo is elusive, and it feels like every crafty step is more difficult than the last. Does the opposite ever happen to you? Well, I found myself in that opposite situation! I had a chance to get crafty last weekend and I created two Oddie cards that I absolutely loved. Choosing just one of them to chat about? Impossible! So, today you’ll see two simple and colorful cards featuring some lovely Mae digi stamps.
My first card features Sea Song Mae, a sweet mermaid stamp I’ve been meaning to color for ages. One of my first Copic-colored images was a Some Odd Girl mermaid, and I’ve been hooked on Copics since! For this card, I chose to go with some lighter colors, with enough contrast to add some shadows and texture. I cut out my image with scissors and went around the edges with a black brush marker. I kept the rest of the card simple, matting a patterned paper to some aqua cardstock and then onto a navy card base. As a last touch, I scattered some enamel dots and wood veneer stars.
My second card features Cupid Mae, who looks like a brilliant and sweet angel. For her colors, I pulled my inspiration from the lovely bokeh patterned paper I found in my stash. I loved the combination of white, gold and a touch of pink. So, that’s what I colored Mae with! I used a gold pen on her belt and shoes, and cut her out with scissors. This time, I left a thin white border, as I wanted the floating hearts to stay attached to the image. I added some white ribbon to the bottom of the card, and a few heart enamel dots I had in my stash.
And there you have it! Two cards I just could not decide between.
One thing you might have noticed is that neither card has a sentiment. I wasn’t quite sure what kind of sentiment I wanted for these two, so I left them as blank notecards until I find just the right phrase. Kristy has a document over on Some Odd Girls Facebook community with some sentiment ideas, and that’s going to be the first place to look. If you’ve got an idea (or 10!), be sure to share them with us! We’d all love to hear them.
