February Some Odd Girl Release Review

Hey everyone! One new thing that we are doing at Some Odd Girl is our Some Odd Girl Release Review, where at the end of every month we get to look back on the projects made with that month’s new digis. 🙂 It is a great idea & I love it.

Here you have two of my own projects, one being new and the other is from the Valentine’s Hop.

My new creation is using the awesome new SOG character, Dakota. This is one tough cookie! Even with that being said, she still knows how to take it easy and just be.

Copic Markers used:
Skin: E11, E13, E15, E19
Hair: C3, B28, C5, C7
Shirt: R81, R83
Pants: C3, C5, C7

I’m sticking with my flat cards, but have switched over to an A6 size. This is a bit easier for me to print out images for a next-to-full sized card base. I love concentrating on just coloring the images and accenting with a patterned paper and border. 🙂

A little refresher from the V-day’s hop – Swoon Dakota! She is just a fabulous, versatile character and I can’t wait to see more of her.

There were quite a number of new images in February, so make sure to stop by the Blog for our Some Odd Girl Release Review to see examples from the Design Team! Or…you could just hop over to the store and pick yourself up some NEW digis!

 

Tea pot friendship has its perks

Hey everyone! I was up on the Some Odd Girl blog yesterday with our February Challenge reminder. I created this little sequin studded card using Tea Pot digi stamp!

I’m a fan of all coffee/tea related and since having Miss E, I finally understand the NEED for the brown stuff, so when Kristy made up Tea Pot I was thrilled! It also let me try to get my metal coloring on – this is a hard technique I tell ya.

Copics used:
R24, R27, R29, R59, R89
C1, C3, C5, C7, C9

While I didn’t use too many Copics I felt that extra R59 in the reds made a huge difference on that Tea Pot. I was lucky enough that my need-to-be-replaced Cool Greys actually added a bit the effect I was after on the stainless steel.

I LOVE shaker cards! They are just so much fun and create a super-flat card, which keeps the postage down. 😀 It doesn’t hurt that I love sequins, and for our Feb Challenge I even whipped out some red heart shaped sequins and even a pearl heart!

For those who love challenges, Some Odd Girl has brought back our challenges to the Some Odd Girl Blog. They are now monthly long challenges with the theme “Anything ODD Goes”. There will be a twist to each challenge though, so keep an eye out. I’m sure you figured out this month’s. 😉

February hopping with Dakota and Some Odd Girl

Welcome to my stop on the Some Odd Girl Valentine’s Day Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Lynda’s blog but if you just stopped by then head back to the beginning to get started so you don’t miss any stops. We have a lot of participants, but it is so worth going through each of the blogs so grab a cuppa and enjoy!

For my V-Day Hop stop, I made a CAS card using the new gorgeous SWOON DAKOTA DIGI STAMP. This 1950’s retro gal certainly had me swooning and itching to get my Copics out!

I paired this beauty up with some fun retro papers and one of the best quotes out there “she believed she could, so she did”. I’m one for empowering my fellow women whenever I can. 🙂

Here you go with a close up of our lovely Swoon Dakota. She is just so fabulous! Make sure you check out the other two digis with our Dakota, you can see them all here.
