MHKDesigns June Release: Day 4


Hello Again Readers!

Here we are at day four of the June release at MHKDesigns! I do hope you have enjoyed the release thus far. I know I have enjoyed your kind comments during this hop. Here is my card for today, enjoy.

This framed image reminded me of the Art Nouveau movement of the
late 19th early 20th centuries.
Images of nature were found everywhere around that time; street lamps, signs, balcony railings, jewelry, and furnishings just to name a few.
This card was trying to convey the colors used during that time. It is a bit saturated, but the hue is similar to the colors used.

 Here are the papers to go with the set. Aren't they fun!!

Sunflower Sampler Digital Paper Pack  Very Distressing Patterned Paper Pack
 Left: Sunflower Sampler; Right: Very Distressing

When showing this card to my friends they mentioned it would be fantastic for a
college student. I guess the big letter 'U' gives the impression of a university.
This is something I didn't notice while making the card but they are right!
Above: I colored the flourishes in gold and used a gold shimmer paper for the large 'U'
Below: The wooden dragonfly was used for balance and follows the use of nature that was found during this period.
 Thanks for stopping by today, friends! We will be back tomorrow with another *NEW* set to share from the MHKDesigns Etsy shop! Don't forget to get all your commenting in for your chance to WIN, and please do join our monthly challenge, as well! Until tomorrow, happy stamping!

Such a pretty card! I love that dragonfly wooden element and the pretty die cut behind the sentiment.
