Trick or Treat with the Odd Girls!


Welcome to my, and the last, stop on our 2nd Annual Trick or Treat with the Odd Girls Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Nicole’s blog, if not, hop over to the Some Odd Girl blog and start at the beginning. We have plenty of Tricks AND Treats so commenting on every stop is essential!



For my hop creation I used the digi stamp Witchy Mae along with the sentiment from the clear stamp Flutter by Fairy. Different for me is I printed her on a piece of Strathamore Grey Tone Sketch Paper then used colored pencils, white, light grey, medium grey and black, to color her. I wanted to make her look like she was lit from behind, like my shaker portion of the card was the moon.

Every stop along the hop has a Trick to go along with the Treats you saw at the beginning. My Trick has to do with the base of my card:

Copics can color any medium, such as the transparency base of my card. Use your markers OR your Copic Airbrush, like I did, to change the color or opacity of your clear elements. 

I used N9 with my airbrush to give the clear base a vignette look, I thought it would give it a different and fun look. You could also use a color for something totally different.


Here’s our hop list:
