Oddball Art - Blue

New week and a new monthly challenge at Oddball Art.
This month we have a theme that is close to my heart:
Blue has been my fav color since I was a kid, 
so I would loooove to see you blue makes.

This happy snowman is Silly Chilly Stan

and I colored him with Copics and PrismaColors.
Background was made by melting some wax and then 
I just added some die cuts to make this card.

I'd like to enter to some challenges:
Come and Get it - Punches and dies
The Paper Shelter - Dies and punches


Lost Coast Design - The Black Tulip

I was inspired by the current Lost Coast challenge where the theme is:
 Water color background.

I used ATC Grunge stamp set to create the background 
by heat embossing and stamping. First I embossed with clear powder
then I used H20 to color and then black ink to stamp.

For the tulip, I first stamped with ATC Grunge stamp set
and then with Tulip on top and fussy cut it.

Sentiment is in Finnish and is the one that goes:
»Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; 
courage to change the things I can; 
and wisdom to know the difference."

I'd like to enter to some challenges:
Pile it On - Make your own background
Rubber Dance - Black, White and one other color


August Mixed Media challenge in STAMPlorations

Well, well, it is the last summer month of the year 2016
and a time for a new STAMPlorations Mixed Media challenge too. :=)

your creation can be anything - but a card.

I had bought a bunch of old puzzles from the flea market
and decided to use one of them this month to make
a wall decoration piece.

I've used acrylic paints, embossing paste, Inka golds, a diecut, 
piece of ribbon and STAMPlorations stamps
to make this altered puzzle which you can still see if you flip the piece

Happy joggers, LOL

Dream in Darkness with Make it Crafty

Dream in Darkness  has a awesome
sponsor this month: Make It Crafty

I got this fab man from New Zealand 
(happy mail from the Sweet Anne) and decided to create a steampunk 
style doll, using Make It Crafty's Clockworks House
as a "heart" and also as an body element.

And after multiple layers of paints, embossing and
glue, Inka Golds and coloring, this is how he end up looking:

and the close up from the "heath"

Gears are chipboards - also from Make It Crafty,
I won them a while ago, and it looks like they are
not on sale anymore, but there is lots of yummy chippies on sale.

So link your strange, alternative, dark, wicked makes here,
and play with us.

I'd like to enter to some challenges:
