August Release Inspiration from Jennifer!

Good morning Oddballs! Jennifer here, and I'm so excited to have my day to share some inspiration using the latest August 2017 release image from Oddball Art Stamps!

Here is my card for today, featuring the FANTASTIC Tabitha the Wart Hoarder, No. 396. This image is so much fun. I LOVEEEE Halloween, it's my favorite holiday and Lizzy's witchy images are the best around! I made her bold and sassy, because she deserve it! ;)

I have colored the image with lots of Copics, drew a base to ground her and added a few shadows too. The enamel dots and googly eye are from my stash drawer, die from Gina Marie.

That's it for me today! Don't forget to use coupon code DTJENNIFER10 when you're picking up your new Oddballs in the Etsy shop. Always good to save a few pennies (so you can buy more stamps, of course...) Can't wait to see you again next month for more Oddball Release inspiration!

New Release - Bookworm IMG395

Hi Oddballs - Angie here with another Inspiration Post for New Releases.

I am using the New Release Bookworm IMG395

Another uber cute owl and what an awesome sentiment to go with her!!!!!

I coloured her with Neon copic markers and then decided to step out of my comfort zone....deep breath! and create a canvas piece!

I like her a lot!
I used Gesso over a newsprint patterned paper (just a few spots peeking out) to give an added interest.
Various paints used along with Distress Oxide inks on the background of the Owl and the doily.
Still learning with this oxide ink but am happy with my effort so far.
I also used a few various stencils for my canvas background.

I would love to see some of you using her for your Challenge entry here at the Blog.
