I know it's a little late, but I am trying to get the blog caught up.  Some Odd Girl has a boy and girl graduate images that are really cute.  I put mine on an alcohol ink background to match the school colors.

Mermaid cards | Some Odd Girl

My Design Team term has ended with Some Odd Girl.  It was so much fun!  I hope to do another Design Team in the future.  Right now life is a little hectic to do that.  But I wanted to recap all the mermazing images I did.  These make great summer cards!

The image is Copic colored and the background is alcohol inks.

The image is Copic colored and the background is some ink blending, stencils and splatter.

Love Me Not Mae | Some Odd Girl | Love | Valentines | Copic Coloring

This sweet image from Some Odd Girl makes a great Valentines card.
To get this image CLICK HERE

Here's my process for making this card.
 Skin colors: E04, E11, E21, E00

Cheeks: R20

Hair: Y15, YR23, YR24, E99

Shirt: R17, R29, R39, R89

Skirt: T9, T7, T5

Flower Stem: YG61, YG63, YG67

Flower Middle: YR23, Y17, Y15

Flower Petals: Y15, T0

Eyes: YG67, YG63
The shadow under Mae is W7, W5, W3 and the outline around her is BG000, BG0000.  These patterned papers are from an old cardstack called Everlasting Love from DCWV.  I printed the sentiment on my laser printer and added red Deco Foil with my Royal Sovereign laminator and die cut with Lawn Fawn's Everyday Sentiments banner.  The heart is cut from red metallic cardstock with Lawn Fawn's Lace Heart Stackables.
The patterned papers are adhered flat with Tombow Mono Permanent adhesive.  Mae has 1 layer of foam tape.

The sentiment banner and top of the heart have 2 layers of foam strips and the bottom of the heart is glued to the banner with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

I finished off the card with some 5mm red sequins.  I could not find a good link for these so I linked an 8mm and a really pretty heart one that would be awesome!

I hope you enjoyed this card and I encourage you to check out the wonderful images at Some Odd Girl.

Snow Fun Tia | Some Odd Girl | Embossing and Texture Paste | Copic Coloring

This fun winter image by Some Odd Girl was great to color and worked well with multiple techniques on this card.  


The bottom layer is embossed hearts brushed with Nuvo shimmer.  The next layer uses the SSS Falling Snow stencil and glossy texture paste and then some hills and slopes.  The sentiment is also a fun one.  I have a laser printer so I designed the sentiment in Word and printed it on Neenah 80# solar white (same as I printed Tia on).  Then I ran it through my laminator with Ocean Blue Deco Foil.
