The Timelessly Odd Hop


Some Odd Girl and Timeless Twine decided to get together for a little play date  and we are SO pleased you've joined us!  We hope you’ll find plenty of inspiration as you make your way around to all of the designers’ personal blogs, and be sure to leave a little love at each stop along the way, because there are THREE gorgeous spools of Timeless Twine and one $25 gift certificate to Some Odd Girl up for grabs!
Our hop, now being lovingly referred to as “The Timelessly Odd Hop”, runs now through Sunday, March 17th at midnight EST, so you have plenty of time to make your way around the circuit.  It’s a big hop, ‘cuz we have TONS of amazing designers who were absolutely excited to combine their love for all things cute, quirky, clever, and crafty, so take your time and ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY!

When I received my stamp set I was scared of it because I am not into coloring images because I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on Copics and learn how to used them. Instead, I turned to old school supplies. I choose coloring pencils and chalks. After I colored the girl with my pencils I went back over it with chalk to give it some depth. 

 I frame the girl with natural twine.
I apply two ink to the word bubble before I stamped it. It gives a nice ombre effect. I also add a small piece of twine to the girl's hair for a ponytail holder.
Supplies: Some Odd Girl ( Flirty Mae), Timeless Twine ( bubble gum pink, purple passion, natural and lemonade yellow) , Studio Calico (butterfly stickers), Lilly Bee Designs (pattern papers), The Paper Studio (cardstock), EK Success (binding edge punch), Ranger (stickles), Heidi Swapp ( mustard spray mist), Stampin' Up! (inks),color pencils , metallic chalk, gem, stick pin and doily.
If you've just dropped by randomly and haven’t been hopping from the beginning, here’s how it’s all going down:

So there’s your hop list!  You don’t have to visit everyone in order, but you do have to visit EVERYONE if you want to win the goodies!  And that’s your cue, friends!  Our winners will be announced on Monday, March 18th.  Happy hopping, and GOOD LUCK!
