Double Challenge Friday

Happy Friday! I am so excited to finally be able to tell you a little secret that I have been keeping to myself. I was asked by Stephanie to be part of the Motivet Design Team!


OMGosh! I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with these adorable stamps and be part of their tremendously talented DT! I received my package a couple of days ago and it didn’t take long before I had this one inked up! Thanks Stephanie :)

How sweet is this? This cutie reminds me of my boys. This is a favorite pass-time for them right now. It takes ages to walk to and from school with them as they keep stopping to pick these! When their little faces light up as they watch the dandelion fluff blow away, I forget that they are just weeds…….I see how magical they really are! This image was perfect for sweet Tanja’s wonderful sketch for this week’s Friday Sketchers. I pulled out some pastel paper from SU! to match my copic coloring and added some stickles to the dandelion seeds/fluff.

  • Stamps: Motivet Rabbit with Dandelions, Sentiment Whiff of Joy
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU! Bashful Blue, SU! Salebration Paper 2009
  • Coloring: Copic Markers, Stickles
  • Embellies: SU! Ribbon, Magnolia Blossom. Hero Arts Gem Adhesives

Be sure to check out all the samples that my fellow DT sisters have created for your inspiration.  We hope  you will be able to play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketcher blog. We are being sponsored this week by 7 kids college fund!

Of course, since it is Friday, I have a second card to show you. This is my card for the Wags ‘n Whiskers Challenge which this week is to create your own embellishment.

I used the sketch from this week’s Truly Scrumptious Challenge and added a home-made flower to the top left. I inked and colored up this hilarious image from the new release. Is this kittie living it up or what? LOL! Along with my copic coloring, I used Prismacolors & OMS to created the background blue shading and added some glossy accents to the martini glass!

  • Stamps: Wags ‘n Whiskers Sip ‘n Sun Available -->here<--
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU! Bashful Blue, SU! Salebration Paper 2009
