Starlynn Queen of the Spooky Starlight Sugar Web Fairies Image No 160

I am continuing the Oddball inspiration for May using Starlynn Queen of the Spooky Starlight Sugar Web Fairies, that's a mouthful Lizzy.  She is IMG160 and she is adorable.  Don't forget we are phasing out the Etsy shop, so now all images are being moved over to the new website https://www.oddballartco.com and the link direct to Starlynn is https://www.oddballartco.com/product-page/digi-stamp-starlynn-queen-of-the-spooky-starlight-sugar-web-fairies-image-no-160

For the sentiment I have used the one with IMG217 Nixie the Pixie available here.  I love the versatility of Oddball digi stamps;  they can be mixed and matched so easily.

I did not have a clue where this project was going when I started colouring.  I just knew I wanted to use the Red and Yellow Copic shades.  I started it at home and ended up taking the Copics I wanted to use to a Retreat last weekend.  I wanted to relax at the retreat, I had a couple of hectic weeks with the failure of my hard drive so I thought I would mostly play around making backgrounds, some for ATCs and whatever else developed from that.  Well when I made this yellow gold one, I knew my card for this post was coming together.  I had not taken much in the way of coloured cardstock, well none really, but one of my friends had some blue shades she was offering to anyone, so I jumped at this one.  I hope you like my inspiration for Goblins, Fairies and Ghouls Oh My! theme and don't forget my discount code over at the shop.  Don't forget now


By the way, don't forget IMG160 comes with two facial expressions that Lizzy uses on many of her images, what a bargain!!!!

Chubby Unicorn

Today I am showcasing "Chubby Unicorn" available here in the Ericraft Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/592499792/digital-stamp-chubby-unicorn-with-and?ref=shop_home_active_3

I have used Chubby Unicorn to make an ATC, my new addiction.  Erica and I came up with an idea to promote her shop and group  https://www.facebook.com/groups/Ericraft/ by having a competition. You can win a gorgeous card by Erica, and quietly, she is an expert colourist, and this ATC by entering a creation in our Competition Album using an Ericraft image. All details are in the Announcement section of the group.

There are lots of images to choose from over at the Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/EricraftShop?ref=l2-shopheader-name

Don't forget to check out the sale section, the latest release digis are there for a great price, plus a few extras.

Fay the Fancy Fairy

Hey Oddball Fans,

Do we have a special surprise for you.  Lizzy from Oddball Art Co. still has some of her images available in red rubber and now that her new website is coming along nicely, she has decided to start listing them.  The first one up on the website shop is Fay the Fancy Fairy.  She is the cutest and comes with a sentiment already - https://www.oddballartco.com/product-page/rubber-stamp-fay-the-fancy-fairy

Go to https://www.oddballartco.com/product-page/rubber-stamp-fay-the-fancy-fairy and check out this red rubber stamp.  You will find Lizzy has very limited supplies of these exclusive stamps and when they are gone, they are gone, and guess what, I tried my discount code on the rubber stamp and it works, so you are good for a 10% discount off the price of the red rubber stamp if you use my code


Take a look at Oddball's new website, it is evolving quite nicely, be sure to sign up for an account, as well as the newsletter (top right corner);  if your name is registered who knows what freebies and specials you may receive once Lizzy has completed the huge task of  creating a new website and transferring her shop over from Etsy.


There is lots to browse, let your fingers do the walking and check out every nook and cranny and familiarise yourself with the Community tab, which includes the forum with tips and tutorials and the challenge blog is now attached to this website too.

Now the other purpose of introducing Fay the Fancy Fairy is to remind you about our monthly ATC swap.  I have already entered two ATCs into the album, but I have also made a Fay the Fancy Fairy ATC for our May theme, Goblins, Fairies and Ghouls, Oh My!  She will also be going into the album and some lucky participant in this month's swap will receive her - a Special Edition ATC I think we will call her.  So if you haven't put your name down for this month's swap, do it now and you could be the lucky one to receive this special edition ATC.  Go to our Facebook group now and sign up.  You will find the ATC Swap posted in the pinned post and our host this month is Jennifer Greco and she would love to see your name there.  We would love to see some new faces and styles.  ATCs are great fun and if you are strapped for time, you only need to make one to join in the fun.  ATCs are fun all the time, no matter what the present craze is, you can't go past the fun in receiving an envelope from who knows where - Canada, America, Australia, Sweden, Germany Finland - I could go on - anywhere in the world - and the friendships you form from one little rectange 2.5" x 3.5" are AMAZING to say the least.

Have I convinced you yet to take the plunge, here is the link  to join our group


and if you are already a member of our group, here is the link direct to this month's swap


See you next post and remember Fay the Fancy Fairy is not available as a digi, only red rubber and stocks of each rubber stamp Lizzy lists on the website will be limited.

Oddball Art Stamps Nixie the Pixie IMG#217

It is Goblins, Fairies & Ghouls Oh My! month at Oddball Art Stamps and I have chosen as my inspiration IMG#217 Nixie the Pixie.  She is such a cute fairy amongst mushrooms and of course there is a butterfly there too - perfect for a birthday card for a special little girl.  This image is available in the Oddball shop


I hope you like my inspiration and you check the shop out for fairies, ghouls and goblins, a perfect theme for Oddball Art Stamps.  Don't forget to use my discount code to get a further 10% off your order.


Every time I go to the shop I find more images to add to my wishlist and I bet you will too. The new shop looks as if it has loads more images than the Etsy shop had, probably not but it's so much fun looking through all the different sections on the side.
