OCC Sketch Challenge

NEW month means we have a NEW hostess, please help us welcome our March hostess, Silke Ledlow. This week Silke has created a new Sketch for us to try. We can’t wait to see your take on it!!!


There is no time limit on our challenges - participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave us a comment linking to your card/project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Here's what I did for this sketch;


I used my new Changito Spring set that I got from i {heart} papers. Isn't he sweet? Since Silke Ledlow is this month's hostess on the OCC, I tried to do my project with some Silke flair! The image is on a field of white! The green gingham paper is from the Material Girl Collection by Cosmo Cricket. The ribbon is white 1/4" silk and it feels like tying with air!! Gorgeous stuff. I coloured this monkey dude with Copic markers. Y'all know how much I love my copics!


This is straight from Kate at i {heart} papers;

"I’ve been keeping a BIG secret from you…I apologize. So big it took up 5 HUGE boxes that weighed 45 pounds each. They were delivered today so I can finally share the news.

IHP is now carrying the full line of Copic Sketch markers and full line of various refills! Isn’t that exciting?? I’m thrilled beyond belief. And, when I ordered them at CHA they were “blessed” by the Copic Queen herself, Marianne. Yup, it’s the equivalent of a Papal Blessing in the Copic world. She wrote up the order and was convinced that I’d have to place a reorder in 2 weeks. I sure hope she’s right! *grin*

So, I’m excited. I’ve even started a new group over on PCP just for Copic chatter and tips and fun! You can join by going to i {heart} copics. My new friend, Jana, is helping me over there. We’ll be doing challenges (there’s one going on right now!) and all sorts of fun things so you should check it out!

I hope you’re as excited as I am! I know that most of my DT is thrilled!! Just so you know, Copic is out of stock on a few colors but they will be arriving very soon. If you have any other questions please post them here and I’ll do another post with those answers.

I’ve got a lot of other deliveries scheduled to arrive later this week so be sure to keep checking the new section of the store! Thanks for stopping and sharing my excitement!"


I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am Kate is carrying copics and the refills!!! Thank-you so much for stopping by today, and please do check out the OCC blog to see what the rest of the design team did with this wonderful sketch!
