Grumpy Panda

This little brea is so grumpy it just makes me smile!  Is that mean? lol!!!

Another new Digi from Some Odd Girl today and I cannot tell you how much fun I had with this one. I'm totally having a blast creating slimline cards right now.  I know, I know, I know, it's totally a fad and it will go by the wayside again soon! But, I can have fun with it while it's popular can't I??? 
Anyways, this little boy/girl it's totally in a bad mood, and I gotta tell you, I was totally feeling the same way yesterday.  I think all of the quarantine and fear in the world today is making me moody.  

So, I printed this bear on Sweet Sentiment Coloring paper and colored it with the following Copic markers.
Skin: RV95, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, E13 (for the freckles)
Hair: E18, E08, YR18, Y17, E31
Eyes: G99, G46, G000 C2, 0 (colorless blender)
Black: C10, C8, C6, C4, C2
White: W2, W1, W0, W00, 0 (colorless blender)
Black multilines pen, white jelly roll pen

I used a piece of Sweet Sentiment Coloring paper and a stencil from Brutus Monroe along with Distress Oxide Inks for the background.  I spritzed it with some water to disturb the perfect lines left by the stencil.  I also used a sentiment from an old retired Whitt and Sass stamp set and some Stickles drops in "Star Dust." I also use foam adhesive squares to pop up the sentiment and the bear. 

Okie Dokie my friends, I'm ogg to get another cup of coffee.... I really need it today! Toodles! 

Getting a little froggy!


Ut's new release week for Some Odd Girl and I'm here showing off the new digital images!!!! 
This release is so much fun because it features a group of kids all dressed up in silly hoodies!  I don't know about you, but my teenager wears a hoodie 24/7, I swear!!!!! It doesn't matter that it's 90 degrees outside, he's ALWAYS in a hoodie!  

This image of the little boy int he froggy hoodie I decided to make into a "big head." meaning I enlarged the image so big that it cut the bottom half of it off.  I printed him up on Sweet Sentiment Coloring paper and colored him with the following Copic markers:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E27, E57, E23, E34, E31
Tongues: RV95, RV34, RV32, RV00
 Frog eyes: C10, C8, C6, C4, C2    
Hoodie: G28, G19, G07, YG09, YG07, YG05, YG01
Eyes: E27, E23, Y02, G000
0 Colorless Blender black Copic Multiliner in .05 and white Jelly Roll pen

The background is made using the NEW Woodland Mandala Stencil from Sweet Sentiment Stamps and a variety of Distress Oxide inks.  After stenciling onto the Sweet Sentiment Coloring Paper, I then spritzed the paper with Lindy's Gang Magicals Spray.  I used a sentiment from The Rabbit Hole Designs, and one from The Greeting Farm, then an A2 scalloped die from Honey Bee Stamps to complete the card.  Oh, and as always, there's a few little Stickles drops in "Star Dust" here and there on the card as well. 

I hope you loved this project and I'll see ya back the rest of this week for the other images being release from SOG.

I'm off to refill my coffee mug!  Toodles! 

Nose to Nose

This sweet little mermaid is meeting this silly little angel fish nose to nose!

This mermaid is a digital image from Some Odd Girl and she's called "Dancing Mermaid." However, I manipulated the angle here to have her meeting up with this little fishy, instead of dancing.  

Copic Markers used:

A Proper Mermaid

Ok, so today is the last day for the Some Odd Girl MerMay release, but that doesn't mean the fun is over.  I'll still be posting more and more and more mermaids throughout the month.  Today though, I have a proper mermaid to share with you, No really, that's what she's named.


I had to color her with some classic mermaid colors because she was just so...proper.  I placed her in a little shallow in the ocean with a sand bar and little boulder and of Cours beautiful tropical teal waters.  I simply used a corner rounder and layered her on top of papers from Graphic 45.  I love that she is just so simple, yet stunningly beautiful.  And all of that hair makes me swoon. 

Ok I'll catch ya on the next wave.... I'm off to the coffee pot for a fill up.  Toodles! 

Hey Mermaid

Hey hey hey... this mermaid is sure to make you smile.... the third in the new MerMay release from Some Odd Girl.  Check her out!

When I saw her I just knew that she would be laying out on a rock, sunning herself, and becoming any passing sailor.  Those poor fools have no idea what's coming.  I love her swath of brunette hair and this bubblegum pink tail.  I used my favorite Die from Honey Bee Stamps to cut out the scene, and then placed it atop a piece of incredible First Edition paper.  I added a huge pink organza bow and a few Nuvo drops for good measure. 

I hope that you are loving this amazing MerMay as much as I am.  I'll be back tomorrow with yet another mermaid to share with you.

Mmmmm.... I think I need another cup of coffee.... yup, pretty sure I do, Toodles! 

Mermaid Tunes

Oh Em Gee you guys!!!! I LOVE this next mermaid soooo much!  Check this out!!!


Ok, so I love that she is totally rocking out to her favorite music and I felt like she would be topside for this.  Just breaking the surface of the water and catching some rays.  I used a piece of paper from my stash that is rustic weathered wood with some peeling teal paint, and cute the card front out using a die from Honey Bee Stamps.  Then I added a really neat fiber from Busy Box Blends By Pammy J, and a fun Nuvo drops to finish off the look.  I LOVE this card so much! 

Okie dokie, I'm going to turn the music up and finish this cup of coffee!  Toodles!

MerMay with Some Odd Girl

Ok, so you didn't think I was finished with the Mermaids yet did you?  No way!!! I have a whole school of new mermaids to share with you starting today from Some Odd Girl!

Here's the first!


This sweet girl is called Mermaid Ponytail and she is totally FAB!!!! I paired her with the ne Graphic 45 Under the Sea papers and it was a match made in... well.. Atlantis! lol! I cute the fish out from one of the sheets of paper because her hand was drawn to look like she's petting something I thought. So... a big ol fish is going to foot that bill. 

I loved the huge open fin at the end of her tail an the fun way her hair floats all around her body.  This was a super cool image to color. I placed her in a sea cavern in the deep, deep sea and made her just a little dark and twisty!  I hope you love her too!

I'm off for a cup of coffee.  Talk to you all tomorrow, Toodles!
