Hello ODD girls, Martine here!  Today is my first blogpost and I’ve used Library Mae . I’ve given her some fishnet-stockings ( if that’s the right word for it….lol ) . And I’ve colored her up with Distress ink from Tim Holtz . That’s been my favorite ink for some time now .

 

 

The filmstrip I found in my stack here in my craftroom….bought it ages ago  and now it comes in handy!  I rolled up a bit of paper from a book I don’t care about and I aged it with distress ink. 

Check out her glasses, see that shine? I also added in a doily and some dies .

 

I hope you like her, I had such fun making her .

Remember we still have our November challenge happening in our Facebook Community.  I hope you will come and join us!

Till the next time , great hugs and a lovely day from me,

Martine

 

 

Hey Everyone, Olivia here! I am so happy to finally be here showcasing my first project for all of you. Today I am showcasing this gorgeous image, Breezey Mae.    I tried to create a sequin dress look for this one when I colored it up with my Copics.  I went with a deeper tone for the skin this time.

Hello Oddies….Lynda here to share with you something fun.

I thought I would share with you a great way to stretch your pattern paper in your collection.  First I started out by coloring the adorable Strolling Mae image using my copic markers.  I kept each color pulled from my case so I could use them later in the project.  I then fussy cut the image and then used my black marker to color the edges of the image.  I then backed it onto white cardstock and fussy cut that image out again leaving a small white border around the entire image.

I then decided on my pattern paper.  I picked this great floral pattern that was done in simple black and white.

I then used the same colors from coloring my main image to color the pattern paper.  Creating the perfect match to my first colored image.

Once colored I backed the print onto my card base made from green cardstock.  I then adhered Mae to the card using foam tape.  I then added my sentiment that I had printed onto white cardstock and mounted with the same green as my card base.  I used this fun line tape to create the great black border along the card front.  I also added some silver marker to her pendant so it shines.

I hope you liked this technique and will take a peek at how you can alter your pattern paper using markers.

Happy crafting….Lynda
