i {heart} copics!

Hi!  Happy Monday!  Today is the day that I finally get to spill my BIG NEWS!  I am so excited to tell you that I am now on the Design Team for i {heart} copics!  Yippee!  i {heart} copics is a sub-DT of i {heart} papers, and is a Paper Craft Planet group.  If you aren't a member of Paper Craft Planet, I encourage you to come on over and join me won't regret it! 

Each week a challenge will be issued by the i{heart}copics team and you will have the chance to play along.  The only "real" requirement is that you use copics somewhere on your creation.   So, in honour of my acceptance of the new DT position, I would love for you to join me in my first challenge - Fabulous Fridays Challenge #3 - it's a great sketch!  Just upload your creation by 10pm EST to the Paper Craft Planet's that easy!  For added challenge - if you choose, the copic colours R29, RV10 and B41 are recommended (or the closest colours that you have).

My papers are Imaginisce Snowy Jo, they were perfect for a winter card, but not too Christmas-ey.  First I used B41 to outline my bear and the I used my blender pen to really blend the colour in so that his fur looks shadowed.  I used R27 on her snowsuit, and dotted it with my blender to take some of the colour away.  Finally I coloured her scarf and outlined her cuffs and hat with RV10.  Then, I took Cotton Candy Stickles and outlined her hat and cuffs and added a little to the bears nose to give them some sparkle.  I also used Diamond Stickles all over my EK Success punched Snowflake.  I finished the card off with a sentiment from Pink Cat Studio's (it's digi so it came free with the image!) and some gem's that look like snowballs.

And, did you see that I made Top 5 at Get Sketchy?! 
Super excited about that...sketches are my favourite!

Whew!  That's a lot of news for a Monday!  I hope your Monday is as good as mine!
