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

Hello! My name is Neha Parab and I am beyond excited to be a designer for Some Odd Girl! I go by the name Completely Handmade… in the crafty world. I am a Software Developer by profession who is also doing Masters in Healthcare Management. Work and school keep me from crafting all day long, but I still manage to get some time working with stamps, markers and ink, blog about it and make videos! I have been crafting since I was a kid. My mom always encouraged me to make birthday cards for my dad, brother, cousins & grand-parents  Every year my dad purchased a huge bundle of cards before Diwali which is a major festival in India, so that he could mail it to friends and family. These acts have rooted the liking for handmade gift giving in me.

My card making style varies very much. I love making my own card backgrounds using Distress inks, Stencils, Texture pastes, Watercolors etc. Ink Smooshing technique is my favorite! I used to be really intrigued and scared at the same time seeing all the wonderful coloring some people would do using Copic markers and so never reached for those and stayed away from image coloring. But the Zig Clean Color Real brush pens have pulled me into coloring the cute images. I love the cute images that Some Odd Girl designers release each month and I’m so grateful for this opportunity here at Some Odd Girl! Thank you for having me as one of your designers. Hope you all will like what I have prepared for you! 🙂

I am Cristina Valenzuela, although I often sign as Rutscht, this is the name of my blog.

I am Spanish and I live near Barcelona. I have an eight year old daughter, which is why I love doing feminine and sometimes childish things. I am a Copic instructor, I love coloring, and doing scrapbooking as well. Although I feel more comfortable creating cards. Some Odd Girl is one of my favorite stamp brands, I love these drawings, I have always admired Kristy Dalman, both for her drawings and for her coloring, is a reference for me, so an honor to be part of her team.

I’m very happy to be here.
