Pumpkins and Ghouls - New Release Inspiration

Hello Oddballs! Jennifer here, and I have a FUN post for you today to show off not one but TWO of the new release images that you can find in the Oddball Art Stamps Etsy Shop! 

I had a lot of fun creating this merged scene using Image No. 404 - Pumpkin Stack with Faces and Image No. 406 - Ghouls in Love. I love that it looks like the bottom pumpkin is freaked out both from being on the bottom and because he's the only one who notices the ghosties about to get them!



Don't forget, we still have our monthly challenge at Oddball Art Stamps that we'd love to have you play along with! We have revamped how we do challenges, please stop over and read all about it HERE. There are still plenty of prizes up for grabs, and time to enter!! The month's optional theme is "Cemeteries".

Creeping in the Cemetery with Suzi

Hello All,
Today it is my pleasure to share with you my latest creation in my large Art Journal.  I've used one of my favourite spooky images by Lizzy, the wonderful 'Bride of Frankenstein'


My background was covered with Black Gesso, then I added some patches of colour with my Gelatos, before adding the main image.  The Bride of Frankenstein is coloured with Alcohol Markers and Faber-Castell PITT Pens.  I Sketched my background scene in with Derwent Inktense Pencil, then added a little water to soften the lines; I then added all the dark details and shadows in with the Faber-Castell PITT Pens.  To finish the page I went around the edges of the page with a dark PITT Pen.

That's all from me for now, Don't forget you still have lots of time to join in our 'Cemetries' themed challenge.

Bye for now
Suzi

New Release - Pumkin Stack with Faces


Hello Oddball´s


It´s me again, TinaToday I have something special for you. I have tried an LED card and used the new pumpkin Digistamp. Pumpkin Stack with Faces - IMG404


Colored with watercolour


If you squeese the little pumpkin, 4 small LEDs illuminate behind the font. Actually, I also wanted to put lights in the pumpkins. But then the copper line simply did not work and so I gave up after about 6 attempts. I like the card as well...
