Colour Crazy Challenge ~ Oddballs

A warm hello today as I swing in with the cutest Oddball make ever! I'm here to share my GDT creation for the Colour Crazy Challenge and let me tell ya, this one is a cutie! The sponsor this week, is the Oddball Art Company. I love their name, because some of their characters really are oddball, it's very tongue in cheek, but there are also some really sweet wistful fairytale characters too. The DT was given a choice of two designs to work with and I'd spotted these fellas a while back. They remind me a wee bit of the 'glumps' my kiddos used to watch and play with from Moshi Monsters. So I found them quite fun to colour up. This wee bunch is aptly named 'Magical Pile of Cute'.

I wanted to do a real rainbow of colours, bright, cheeky and cheerful. So I've gone with quite a bold palette. Last minute I decided they needed a sky behind them, so quickly inked that in before making up the creation. You can see in the pic below the unfinished design before I added the clouds. I also added some white Flower Soft to all the little puff-ball antennae and some Wink of Stella to the unicorn horns. They really are like an invasion of cute aliens! LOL.

I had some papers sitting on my craft desk from a magazine I'd been flipping through, which I spotted had a lovely bright paper amongst them. So I used that as the backing paper for this design and I LOVE it! I think it works a treat with this bright wee bunch of characters. The sentiment printed as part of the design, so I used it as it was, which was a nice simple solution for a sentiment. I matted the image layer with two little accent colours. The red cardstock strips that I'd trimmed off the side when cutting my base down to size and I also added a lovely adhesive glitter paper in blue for a bit of interest and bling. A simple but effective finishing touch I think. You might recall in a recent creation I spoke about finding this 'adhesive school book wrap' in glitter in my supermarket and thinking this could make an elegant and less expensive glitter cardstock solution to what I usually use. This roll is huge! So will last me for a long while.

Well that's it from me for today. I hope you enjoyed seeing this colourful collection of fluffy fun! Do pop on over to the Colour Crazy Challenge to see what the rest of the team got up to for this challenge. The other image the DT used was a lovely mushroom fairy house, so be sure to check out those gorgeous creations. I'll be back again soon with another crafty adventure. In the meantime, have a wonderful week and happy crafting! Hugs, Wends xoxo
