is the only thing you should do by the book. 

This week, Oddball Art is sponsoring our 
'CUTE' challenge over at the Pile It On Challenge Blog!

Oddball Art is offering our winner THREE single digital images! WOW!

Thank you so much, Oddball Art!! 

Oddball Art by Lizzy Love: Growing up a child of the 80's, pop rocks princess, with an extreme fondness for anything candy coated, Kawaii Kitten & Ziggy Stardust, all of which had a major influence in the work that I am creating today. I employ many different mediums when I create, anything from mixed media painting to sewing with many different textiles, the end result always being the same; A whimsical dream world filled with big eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes.

Oddball Art as has a challenge blog that you can find HERE.

I made this card for a mommy friend who is, with the assistance of her son, hosting a summer long book club for some of our little school buddies. It's going to be super fun for the kids. :) I plan to give this as a thank you along with a bookmark I'll post later. 

I colored up my image with my Prismacolor and you can see my tutorial regarding 'stacking' this image HERE. The designer papers are The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) Black and White paper pack and the base is Real Red from Stampin' Up. 

On the inside, I used more of the same paper, which is very thin. The picture makes the paper look wrinkled but it's really not that noticeable. I embossed the sentiment from MFT's Bookmark Basics with Versamark and black embossing powder from Stampin' Up. 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
