IC190 OCC Sketch challenge




This week our July hostess, Jenny Gropp, has challenged the OCC to create a card or project using the provided sketch. There is no time limit on our challenges - feel free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave us a comment linking to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.


This week as a treat for playing in the Challenge, we have a $25 gift certificate up for grabs from Impression Obsession that will be awarded to someone that joins in this week's challenge. And just to let you know Impression Obsession will have all new Fall and Holiday images on the IO store web site starting August 1st.... just in time for the winner to get some brand new rubber!


The inspiration challenge on splitcoast today was this citrus living room from Better Homes and Gardens. I love it! Everything about it right up my decorating alley!!! My favourite part though is the fireplace surround. I love those little water coloured tiles and priced them out for our old house. They were stunning and very cost prohibative at that time. I didn't have paper these exact colours so I decided to do a card based on the colours of tiles I priced out that we would have used if money were no object...

It was just fortuitous that I decided to use my new set of Impression Obsession stamps for today's challenge with the prize being an IO gift certificate!!! WHO KNEW?!!
