Wags N' Whiskers and Motivet Challenges

Happy Friday....
It's my double post day, I'll try to keep them short and sweet!!

This week at the Wags N Whiskers Challenge #5 the theme is "Distressing". I don't do too much distressing on my cards, but I gave it my best shot!!

The fabulous image I am using this week is "Super Ryan".

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. Ryan's cape is painted with icicle H2O's. I used my nesties for the stars and the frame. The white cs was embossed with a CB embossing folder and I distressed it with Versa Magic...Wheat. The DP is from a DCWV paper stack.

You must use a Wags N' Whiskers image on your card to be eligible for your chance to win this weeks fab prize.

Be sure to stop by the WnW's blog as the Diva's have some gorgeous creations to share with you.
I hope you will have time to play along with us this week, I look forward to seeing what you come up with!!

This weeks challenge over at the Motivet Blog is a fabulous sketch.

There are 12 new images in the Motivet release and everyone of them is just "the cutest". If you haven't seen them yet, get yourself over to the Motivet Shop and take a look.

The adorable image I am using this week is "Birthday Morris" from the new release.

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used a Gelly Roll metallic silver pen on the icing dots. The frame was made with my nesties and the bg is embossed with a CB folder. I stamped the sentiment onto shrink film with Stazon black and heated it to shrink it. The border is a MS punch.

Be sure to stop by Motivet blog as the DT have some fabulous cards to inspire you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!
