Recipe:
  1. Black card blanks, 2.5 by 3.5 inches.

  3. Images placed on black card mats, cut with the Cricut.
  4. Printed images cut out by the Cricut and then coloured with markers and white paint pen.
  5. On each ATCs I have added either a sentiment from the set or a strip of ribbon.

Creepy Vs Cute

        

Here are today's makes for Oddball Art Co - Our Oddball theme for this month is 

Flowers and Sunshine






I am using the MAY MEMBERS EXCLUSIVE CALLED CREEPY VS CUTE. - images and sentiments.

Today I have made two ATCs.


(I saw a Spiky Babe on one of my friend's blogs and it amused me to make one from a Gelli pull!)

But for the ATCs...

Step ONE

Print the images  and paint with shimmery water colours. When dry cut them out.

I trimmed the sentiments and added some black soot distress around the edges


Step TWO

Prepare the back grounds. In each case I started with a black card 2.5 by 3.5 inches. I layered these with a yellow 'water colour' paper and a 'slimy' paper, both from my stash.
I added the elements as shown - in this picture you can see the shine!


Step THREE

For the extra pieces on the images, I punched them out and added them here and there trimming them to size.

I added doodling with a black pen.

You will see a similar post on the Oddball Page

So which do you prefer Cute or Creepy?

Leigh has just released a new Print and Cutz collection for electronic Cutting Machines.


As I use my Cricut Maker almost every day I thought I would have a look at what was available.
Now when I bought the Print and Cutz files, I assumed they would transfer pretty well to the Cricut Design Space. I regularly use all sorts of svg files with no problem. However Leigh uses a Silhouette and initially I found that the Kitty Geisha set came out very tiny. Having had an ongoing discussion with Leigh, she has now developed extra files for the Cricut.


But my tiny images were perfect for ATCs!


So these are first two 


Recipe:
  1. Black card blanks, 2.5 by 3.5 inches.
  2. Layer of yellow 'water colour' paper from my stash.
  3. Images placed on black card mats, cut with the Cricut.
  4. Printed images cut out by the Cricut and then coloured with markers and white paint pen.
  5. On both ATCs I have added stickers (PSX Designs for Creativity) and on the right is a Print and Cutz Cherry Blossom.



I will link these ATCs to LeighSB's Linky

Leigh has just released a new Print and Cutz collection for electronic Cutting Machines.


As I use my Cricut Maker almost every day I thought I would have a look at what was available.
And again I am sharing a card...using the draw facility on my Cricut. I thought I would share one more before I move onto the makes with colouring of the images...
I am using the Geisha with Parasol files and the Cherry blossom.


If we were still living in our old house in England instead of here in Australia, our cherry would just be starting to blossom...






Recipe:
  1. White square card blank.
  2. Layer of black.
  3. Layer of Stampin Up paper.
  4. Images placed on black card mats, cut with the Cricut.
  5. Images drawn with pen in the Cricut. I then had to cut them out.
  6. Sentiment is a sticker (PSX Designs for Creativity) placed on a more of the Stampin Up paper then black mat.

It will link this card to LeighSB's Linky
