MHKDesigns January Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the first challenge of 2016 at MHK Designs! I think you will enjoy what we have in store but before I reveal the challenge here is my inspiration card.
What a fantastic image from MHKDesigns!
The globe and sentiment are both from the
Rock My World Stamp Set
You choose what inspires you; color, photo inspiration, or elements. In this case color is what inspired me. My creation is using products from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! If you don't have MHKDesigns products, no worries, you are still welcome to enter!

The pink background paper is also from MHKDesigns.
All I did was distress the edges a bit.
The globe was printed out in grayscale then
I colored over the gray with PrismaColor pencils in various earthy colors.
I was hoping the topography vague enough to be nondescript.
The ocean is outlined with various shades of blue and green leaving the middle white.
Entering Challenges:

All the challenges for the coming months will be based off these color swatches. I do hope you can join us and be a part of the fun! Thank you so much for stopping by for my MHKDesigns debut I will see you over there until then take care.

All the best,

WOW! Love this card, Shawna. Brilliant idea to place the image asymmetrically on the card and to crop it. AWESOME!
