Trick or Treat with the Odd Girls!

ToT2blog

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.

  1. Wow, wow and WOw! This hop is so cool… I love Halloween, not xmas, not easter but Halloween… and I am so excited for this release… I just can’t wait to get my hands on it. Did I say how much I love your creation… Wow, this is beautiful… I love it…

  2. I’m a bit in love with this card, I’m strongly reminded of Bewitched! I love how you chose to color this image and then how you followed through with the theme through your whole card. I haven’t hooked up my airbrush yet but maybe I’ll give it a whirl on some transparent like elements to try out you trick! A truly Awesome card!

  3. Wow Kristy, she is amazing!! I love the b&w and the shaker, she’s just gorgeous! Thanks for a fun hop and all the inspiration along the way! 🙂

  4. Wow the shading is spit on, so fantastic. And great tip on usicopics for the transparencies.I use them on clear bLing but hadn’t thought about it for transparencies.
