Motivet DT - Week 1 Challenge!!

The Motivet Inspiration Blog has another Fabulous Sketch to follow this week. Be sure to drop by the Motivet Blog and see all Beautiful samples made by DT. Join in the challenge to have a chance to win some wonderful Motivet Stamps!

The Cute Motivet stamp I used for this card is called "Morris on skates" and you can find him right here. I think this little fella is just the Cutest....and would be great for a hockey player, (birthday), coach or congratulations on someone making a team.

For Coloring - I used copics for base only ...under the prismacolor pencils and h20's to color this image. *(be sure not to use copics over your prismacolor pencils or your copics tips will be ruined)*

The sentiment was made with a Label Maker. I drew and cut out the stars and used a paint brush and white acrylic paint to make the #1....very easy!!

Ink - memento black, bashful blue. Papers - GP white, bazill, me & my big ideas, basic grey. Accessories - brads, string, eyelets, label maker, acrylic white paint, glitter, stitching.

It has finally warmed up here a little. We manged to go for a walk yesterday and today! The weather for the rest of the week looks good too!!...Yay!!..

Have a Great day Everyone....and Thank You for all your Wonderful Comments!!

Motivet DT - Sketch #53

I couldn't help but use this older but favorite Motivet stamp for this sketch. She just fits for perfectly!! This cute stamp is called "Doraline with ladybug"

Check out the # 53 sketch challenge at the Motivet Inspiration Blog. to see the DT's Beautiful creations. Join in the challenge and you will have a chance to win some Gorgeous Motivet stamps.

The image is colored with copics under the prismacolor pencils and a touch h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

There is glitter on Doraline's collar, cuffs, tiny flowers and the white button heart. I've used Shimmerz on the larger flowers. I also got a chance to use my lovely MS heart punch..(what a lovely punch!)... The sentiment is cut from an SU stamp set.

Ink - memento black, bordering blue. Papers - GP white, Treasures, Basic Grey Bittersweet, dcwv. Accessories - flowers, roses (from my good friend Tina), ribbons, button, pearls, glitter, embroidery floss, tulle, angle wings shimmerz, stitching.

It has been freezing cold here....our usual January weather. It is suppose to warm up by the weekend...but we'll see. Most of our long range forecasts are just something hopeful to look forward too...but ya' never know.

Have a Great Day!!....and Thank You so much for your Lovely comments!!!
