OCC Sketch Challenge and Giveaway

There's Prizes over at the OCC today! Play along and you could win $25.00 worth of Clear Dollar Stamps! Click HERE for details! Our very talented March Hostess, Kim Teasdale came up with this very pretty sketch for the challenge. Don't forget to check out Guest Designer Laurie Wilson's Challenge card and her awesome blog!!!





Well it was just like Christmas here on Friday when a big old chubby package arrived for me in the Mail!!! New Rubber from STAMPOTIQUE ! I had the chance to spend time with Carol and Jim Ramsey at CHA California. They are such a lovely couple and I feel very privileged to be able to design for them.










This sweet image is called Give the Dog a Bone and is by Maryse Carrier.




I just couldn't wait to get this little fella all inky!!!! I also knew that my DCWV Pet Stack Paper would work really well with this image and sketch. I coloured the image with Copics, using my white gel pen to highlight and sponging Cool Caribbean and Certainly Celery ink around the image. I used a Copic Fine liner to create the blades of grass.




Look at his sweet little face!!!!! Watch for more Stampotique images coming up soon !!!!!!

Don't forget to check out my ORANGE Challenge! You still have another day to post!!!! Help! I need ideas for Orange!!!!


Happy Stamping!

  15. Adorable card Vicki! I have 2 doggies of my own and I think your title/comment is just perfect! :) Great use of the patterned papers too - I struggle a lot with using anything other than solid or textured CS.
