SOG Clear Stamp Release Blog Hop

Welcome everyone! We are getting ready to celebrate spring and the warmer weather with the Some Odd Girl March Spring Clear Stamp Release! Today we are hopping to some of the Odd Girls blogs where we will be sharing sneak creations using 3 new sets coming to the shop on Monday the 19th to help you get inspired! Here’s our hop list…

Some Odd Girl Blog

Each stop will not only get you ready for the release but have a chance to win one of our sets! That is 7 chances to win!
To be eligible to win you must leave a comment answering the Odd Girls’ questions at each stop before the end of the day March 18th (midnight EST).


My question is... when colouring, what is the most enjoyable/challenging part of an image for you? For example, I like colouring hair, but I laugh at my private joke, that I'm having good or bad hair days. There are times they turn out fabulous, and sometimes it's a small disaster! lol

I also have a card (of course!), with a sweet little peak into one of the new sets... Gwen In Bloom. This is also a set that I'm giving away!
I'm wildly excited about having uber-adorable critters sharing the space, with some of your favourite SOG characters! Just look at this two...

  2. This is so sweet Iwona! I love your colouring! My love hate relationship with hair colouring sounds pretty similar to yours! It's great when it turns out well, but I feel so disappointed when it's a bad hair day!

  3. Such a cute card! I don't know why but the most challenging thing when coloring a card is the skin for me ( I have bad skin or good skin days intsead of hair).

  6. Such a bright and cheerful card! Hmm I would have to go with hair also... love the challenge and the depth you can get with it.

    ReplyDelete
  7. The animals are very uber cute, kawaii, round and fun your coloring is perfect! When I have to color flesh that is by far the most challenging but the most enjoyable is usually the clothes, I love to use colors there.

  9. Beautiful card and yeah, you're right, those critters are too darn "tweet" lol.

    My coloring nightmare is coloring..... lol, I'm still trying to get my lighting right, add some depth and shadows. (and on the SOG images... drawing a nose!)

    ReplyDelete
  10. what a cute and beautiful card, Iwona.

    The most enjoyable/challenging part of coloring an image for me is made shadows.

    hugs

  11. Chupa this is GORGEOUS my dear! I love the coloring of course and those fabulous papers! The little addition of lace is a perfect touch!
    Hugs,

  12. Chupa, this is simply so cute & sweet.

  13. Your card is so pretty - am loving these little animals and birds.
    I'm with you on the most challenging part of colouring an image - definitely the hair and usually it's a bad hair day!!

  14. Wow what a super cute card! Love the images and your colouring of both of them is wonderful!
    I love colouring and I can't say its a special part I love most, sometimes it's the hair, sometimes the dress or clothes,- but the best thing is when you are done and you put the shadows around the image and you really see it turn to life!
    Thanks for sharing
    Hugs, Jill

  15. What a supercute card you made...!!!

    Well, I don´t agree with your favouritething to colour, I can only colour blond :D
    I guess my favourite is the clothing...match them. It´s like in the morning, when I´m picking out what to wear ;)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love that little yellow bird! I don't really have one particular thing I love to color? I actually enjoy the entire thing! I learn something new every time I color a image.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My biggest challenge is getting the shading correct for a specific light source.

    ReplyDelete
  18. What an adorable card! Of course, we would expect nothing less from you. :) I agree, the hardest part for me can be the hair. With some stamps it can be quick and simple and look great, and others it takes a few tries.. but trying is the best part!

    ReplyDelete
  19. super awesome Image, love what you did.
    I find your question awesome.
    My question is... when colouring, what is the most enjoyable/challenging part of an image for you?
    Most enjoyable is dressing the image for me, love fashion. The challenging is always the hair. I do not ever like it lol.
    I need a tutor lol.
    hugs

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your card is super cute!! My hardest part of coloring is getting the shading right (but I use watercolors...).

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love coloring in images because I can make the colors to match my project but I am sometimes challenged by getting the shading right so it looks realistic.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Adorable card! I just love coloring..I like to see the image come to life. I guess I prefer people more than anything else.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Adorable card!!!
    This question is very hard for me because I´m still learning coloring and I have´t got much colors. So it´s difficult to color hair. But I do love color clothes that is easyest for me at the moment :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. Super cute card. I love coloring hair too, I love pink hair for my fairies!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love the card! Such darling critters. For me, it is the skin...it is the most challenging for me but when I get those shadows in just the right places I love it! Still working on that. Olivia

    ReplyDelete
  26. Adore this beautiful bird and bee! so sweet!

    With colouring for me the enjoyable and yet challenging part is shading, I am just starting out but getting there slowly! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Adorable card! Can't wait for the new release. I'm just starting to use Copics so everything is challenging! lol. But I would have to say the most enjoyable and challenging would be hair also. I think the hair makes a big difference (in real life too!)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow this is magnificent. Love how you've framed the image with stitching and underlined it with ribbon and lace. My fav part has to be to colour the skin;) Bettina xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. So cute! My favorite part of coloring is trying any kind of shading since I'm very new at it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Stunning card Chupa! My fave art is the highlights - trying not to be too heavy with the pen and being brave by leaving a some white!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hair is my nr two! But my nr 1 challenge/enyment is pleats! If I get them right Im sooo happy.. but they're a bit hard for me still!

    Your card is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Gorgeous creation, love it!

    Coloring is my favorite part of creating - I find coloring black hair to be the most challenging for me. My favorite part of coloring is the blending - I use Prismacolor pencils with mineral spirits, and I love blending them and shading.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Beautiful card. I find hair challenging and enjoy doing that a lot as that more than anything sets the image apart. TFS

    ReplyDelete
  34. That card is the "tweetest"! Sorry I couldn't resist! I am rather new to coloring and my biggest challenge has been blending but I think I'm on the right track now. Thankfully!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Awe your card is gorgeous!! I find coloring up outfits to be fun and coloring of the skin to be some what challenging!
    hugs, Heidi

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yeah! Perfect spring card! The bright colors inspire me a lot!!
    I'm learning how to color better, but for me the clothes are the most challenging part!! My faces and hair are always the same :) (i don't have more colors! )

    ReplyDelete
  37. aww how funny exact same for me the hair!
    but mine are mostly bad hair days x
    love the sweet card x

    ReplyDelete

  41. So beautiful, your colors just pop off the card! Really gorgeous and mine are folds, ughh they work sometimes and sometimes not so much :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love your card! So much fun! My favorite part of coloring are coloring stripes. Stripes on shirts, socks, anything.:)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Since I've only had my Copics since Christmas, it would be everything. LOL The most difficult thing right now is black hair. Definitely need to invest in a colorless blender.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi Chupa! Loving your card (as always!)
    I find I can either make or break an image with the hair, but I also find any accessories the stamp have with them, presents, books etc also make me get stuck at times too...

    ReplyDelete
  45. oh my gosh! this card is sooo cute!!!!
    I love coloring hair! I like playing around with my water colors to come up with fun new ways to make the hair pop! Plus, i hardly ever color 'normal' hair colors! purple hair is my favorite to color!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh my gosh, what a "tweet" card!! I love coloring skin. I love your joke about good and bad hair days!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Your card is absolutlely LOVELY!
    This biggest challenge for me is HAIR...ugh but I do so enjoy faces.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Gorgeous colors...... so bright and cheerful...
    Fav thing is starting a new never before colored image (by me )

    ReplyDelete
  49. WOW so vibrant!

    My most challenging thing to colour is animal fur or bird feathers ... I find this difficult. Oh and shoes! I find these hard too!

    I really enjoy colouring hair ... and clothes.

  50. I Like coloring the eyes what there are some. Esp, 1-blue AND 1-Green Eye, like some people in real life have, but are rare. I went o school with a girl who had Deep dark Velvet Black Hair And had 1-Blue/Violet and 1-Green/Emerald color eyes. On top of it she was VEY VERY SWEET 2!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Aww this is super gorgeous!! Loving these new images :) I think I really enjoy colouring hair too...something about creating a lot of texture! Pleats are fun too :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Absolutely adorable card! Love the colors, and the coloring! All the detail is just wonderful! The most challenging thing in coloring for me is figuring out where the shading goes. Practice, practice, practice.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What a super sweet card!
    I like colouring clothes and flowers, but I find faces challenging.
    The question now made me think...there are good days & bad days....

  56. Look in Anettes and Leah's comments I couldn't get my comment 2 take because I do not know the
    "HOW-TO" when the Select-Profile is ONLY for
    Google-Account-or-Open-ID! So I thought I would answer their Questions here, and maybe you can find out how this can still be counted??In Anettes she asks what Ur Fav in the M_ _ Collection: My answer is:Even thought I DoNOT like cats, I like the kitten, but I really like the Kite too it makes it even feel like "Spring" when you are coloring the kite on the rolling-hills.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Love the card!
    For me the challenging part are the clothing, sometimes I just love them and others I really have to ask myself: What happened?
    Hugs,
    Julia

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well for Leah Blog I also could NOT leave a comment SAME ISSUE TOO! So I've no choice but to leave it here,O-KAY? MY Favorite spring thing is the Snow-Drops coming -up through the snow.

    Tugg'in at that big worm! Now that my Fav!

  60. What a cute card! Love the colors.

    My favorite thing to color is the skin (i like that I can give them tans, add shading and make them come to life). My most challenging part is the clothes.... adding shading and crease lines... GRR!!

    My favorite thing about coloring (in general) is how relaxing it is. =)

    ReplyDelete
  63. you know what it is the shadowing! i always have a chuckle to myself when i do not get the shadows right. its not my fault,the sun keeps going behind the clouds!!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Chupa love your little sweet teets! They are just perfect! For me my biggest challenge when colouring is what colors should I choose because there's so many and sometimes it just doesn't work out the way you want it to be.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love how the bee looks like it is about to fly off the card, I also really like the color combo you used on the card.

    I think my most challenging part when coloring is when clothing has alot of ruffles or folds getting the shadowing right.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Wings LOL
    love them sparkely LOL

    ReplyDelete
  69. Wow! A beautiful card! I just love it! For coloring... I seriously struggle with shading and my images tend to look flat, but I still have a lot of fun with it! My favorite part is when I finish - when I look at the finished image, I can tell that I'm growing and improving every time!
    Hugs,
    Dee

  70. What a beautiful card and the images are fantastic!! I love colouring the faces, but I do find hair a big challenge, especially black hair, I haven't mastered that yet!! But,you know what they say, practice makes perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  71. For me it is faces, experimenting where the light and shade hits is a mega learning curve for me but I can normally always get the skin perfect!! Gorgeous card, the colours are beautiful! x

    ReplyDelete
  72. Great card, beautiful coloring! The most challenge part of coloring for me is always the hair because it is hard to shade. The most enjoyable part is clothes because you can make them so many different colors.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh my word - I love everything about this card. Stunning!! I love everything about coloring, so it's hard to pick a favorite. I get a lot of satisfaction about being able to shade to make things look realistic

    ReplyDelete
  74. Ohhh your card is so sweet- tweet tweet :O)
    I'm always having a hard time, getting the skintone just the way I want. Guess I just need to practice lots more ;O)

    Hugs Laila

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love your card and how sweet it looks. I think your coloring is fantastic. As for your question I was going to say hair as well. I love to color the hair, but like you there are days when I should just put the Copic down and walk away. I love your joke of good or bad hair days. lol... It is SO true. :O) Have a great Sunday. Hugs, Lisa G

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
