Now that the new year is here I have an announcement! I am now part of the MHK Design team! Mynn, the owner, has put together some amazing stamp sets using vintage images and modern sentiments. I am so excited to spending 2016 with this remarkable company and design team. With that said I introducing my first MHK Designs card and of course entering a challenge that inspired the design. Here is my card, enjoy.
|The wildflowers in the background and colored flowers in the foreground help create a serene scene. I thought this image was too delicate to use my Coastal Cabana markers so instead I used my PrismaColor pencils.|
|Lots of white space surround the flowers. The flowers are from |
MHK Designs digital stamp collection. I thought the color scheme would
be a perfect fit for this type of card.
|Gold gilding creates a sense of elegance and care; conveying |
a feel though color and design.
|Detail featuring the flowers. |
Once the background flowers were in my photo editing software I washed them out and the colored image had more contrast to pop it to the foreground.
The gold gilding came from a new toy I received for Christmas; the machine is called the Anna Griffin Minc and wow do I love it! Foil is applied seamlessly using the pre-cut dies that come with the machine. This will become a staple product for my craft area and needless to say you will see more projects with foil! Well I will get off my soapbox!
Thank you for joining me today and I do hope you will join me soon at TheGrandStampede!! Take care all and see you soon!
All the best,
