Some Odd Girl - Time For Spring!! ( almost! )

Hi Oddies!  Thank you for your kind comments here and on the Some Odd Girl Blog all week during our four day of this amazing digital release!  I'm so happy to be here with you again today to introduce you to Summery Mae and Woodsy Mae.  Just two more fabulously darling ladies to add to the ever growing Odd Girl Family! 

My first creation features Summery Mae.
I printed her out and colored her with my Copics.  I then paper pieced her skirt.  All papers are Jillybean Soup and the flower and leaf are cut using MFT Die-namics.
 In order to add texture to her hat I first colored the hat with my Copics.  I then took a small scrap of denim fabric, and using the reverse side (so as not to transfer any denim color onto my image) dab one or two drops of your Colorless Blender Refill until just damp.  Now press the fabric against the colored image.  In about five seconds you pick up the fabric and the color will be lifted out of those now textured spaces by the Colorless Blender solution.  It's super fun!!

My second creation uses the beautiful Woodsy Mae.
I went a bit preppie (for me ;) and used absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS Miss Caroline papers from MME.  SWOON!  I printed Mae and colored her with my Copics.  I repeated the treatment on her pants (see tiny written tutorial above!;) to make them look like Corduroy or Suede.  I added some sweet flowers and a bit of stitching and I was happy.

I hope you've enjoyed this weeks phenomenal release at Some Odd Girl!  Once again, Kristy has given us even more fabulous art to create with!! 

Come on over and see all of the images in the Odd Girl Shop!!! 

Crafty Hugs!
