Black and White Demure

Good afternoon on this fine crisp October Thursday. 🙂 Some Odd Girl is continuing our ODDtober challenges today with a sweet one – Black and White.

Since it is October, the season of ghouls and macabre, I thought to create an old Black and White portrait for this challenge. Think back to all those horror movies with the black and white portraits on the wall watching you. 😉 To accomplish this I picked the wonderful Demure. Her look was exactly what I was looking for.

Black and White Demure

The design is pretty simple. I didn’t want the black paper to be so flat, so I create two panels by tearing a middle panel diagonally across the paper. Some Lawn Fawn slit border action and I was satisfied.

As much as I love black and white, this needed a pop of color, which it got with the use of flat-backed wine red pearls. It almost looks like drop of blood, no? 🙂


ODDtober has been a blast so far and only 10 more days left! I’m looking forward to our fabulous Halloween Blog Hop, I hope you are too!

Let's Party like it's ODDtober

Hello my friends! It is another fabulous ODDtober challenge today. To see all the lovely inspiration and the theme for this challenge, head over to the Some Odd Girl Blog.

As for my own sample for today’s challenge I used the absolutely wonderful On Safari Clear Stamp set with an accessory from Owl-Days (retired).

I love using non-Halloween stamps for Halloween cards. 😀 The lion was colored up way back in spring. I used Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Ink in Slate for the stamping, and colored him up in Copics.

The layout is actually the other half of a previous card I did with the newest Vampire Bunny. I just love those stitches! I think it all fits ODDtober so well, so don’t forget to play along with us as well. 🙂

ODDtober begins with milk and cookies

I can’t believe it is October. This is by far my favorite month, especially since it is also ODDtober! A whole month of challenges and prizes from Some Odd Girl. 😆

For this first challenge I played with my favorite stamp Cookies n Milk Clear Stamp. A little Halloween coloring to make it truly ODD and it fit the challenge theme.

These two little “ghoul” friends are just adorable. I imagine that Cookie tastes like a sugar cookie such chocolate chips while Milk is strawberry but with line green coloring. Yummy 😜


 

Hippo Digital Stamp Inspiration

So this didn’t get published when it was supposed to but here ya go anyway. 😆 Good day my friends! Another week of craftiness gone and another post up on the Some Odd Girl Blog. This time I’m sharing an inspirational card with Hippo Digital Stamp.

I may have mentioned this before, but I usually plan out my cards in the Silhouette Studio app. This helps me visualize what I need and if I want something cut out, it is already there. 🙂

Not too many colors here, I was actually going for a more soft look. When working with greys, it is so important to use a light touch. Too often can the image become too grey, which makes it look like a mistake. I’ve done this so often that I wanted to challenge myself with going with a light touch.
