Welcome back for a new Copic Creations challenge!

Smiley from

We’re hoping, for those of you in the USA, that you’re enjoying the start of a long, relaxing holiday weekend!

Thank you to EVERYONE who was able to play along for our DOODLES challenge – Amazing art work, each and every one!

Our challenge today was a special request from one of our loyal followers, Jen Stutzmanrn~ Coloring White Articles of Clothing with your Copic markers.   This can actually be a little tricky;  But, hopefully, this post will provide some assistance to you, along with a few great tutorials found below.


We’ve also got ANOTHER awesome sponsor for you this week!!

We’re SUPER excited to welcome La La Land Crafts to our Copic challenge family!!

As you can see from the above logo, La La Land Crafts is home to the ADORABLE Marci and Luka collection of stamps.   I hope you have time to take a peek at ALL the wonderful images from La La Land – it will definitely be worth your while!   The sooo very nice Irina, owner of LLL, has graciously provided each Copic Creations Design Team member (a/k/a the Copic goddesses!) with an image from La La Land.   You’ll definitely want to check these out ~ They are the best of the best, IMO!

We’ve picked our In The Spotlight card from our last challenge … this weeks featured designer is

    Is it just me or is anyone else having a problem seeing the cards? 😦

    I can’t see the DT cards either, just get a white box with the red cross in the corner.

    Thanks for sharing! I always wondered how to make white look white without NOT coloring it!

    Just found this challenge today and thought this was one I needed to try since I had no idea how I would make clothing look white when the paper is white. I guess that’s why they are called challenges 😀 Thanks for the chance to play along.
