Hi, everybody! Can I just say that I’m SO over winter? We got pummeled with snow late last week, and while I have experience driving and walking in it, the “fun” of it wore off a long time ago!
Because I’m looking forward to Spring (and I’m sure you are, too), I’m sharing two cards that I made with the newest digi stamps at Some Odd Girl! Both of the images and cards make me smile and put me in a Spring-time frame of mind!
First up is “Daydreaming Fairy“:
And next is “Daffodil Fairy“:
|Some Odd Girl supplies: digital stamp (“Daffodil Fairy”), clear stamp (“Sunny Mae“); Other supplies: patterned paper (“Park Bench” 6×6 pad – Fancy Pants Designs), Assorted Copic markers, Stickles glitter glue, opaque white marker.|
Can you tell that I spent lots of time on the shadows and shading? I’m really trying to improve my technique with pleats and shading and light. I’ve found the best way to get better is to practice! And, there are so many awesome technique videos out there, and I definitely look them up when I’m stumped! (Kristy has lots of live color along videos on the Some Odd Girl UStream channel!)
The layouts for both cards were inspired by the current Deconstructed Sketch (#138):
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I brought you some sunshine with these cards…and I hope you have a wonderful week! Don’t forget, there’s still time to show us your mad misting or masking skills (or both)! Make sure to link up your entry at the SOG blog!
And, in case you haven’t heard, we’ve changed from the old ning community to a new group on Facebook…there are lots of fans chatting and sharing their Oddest creations already, so make sure you get in on the fun ASAP!
