Witching Hour at MHK

Hello Readers,

Today I would like to show you how you can use your MHKDesigns digital stamps, photo-editing software, and traditional colored pencils to create a scenic card. But before we get to that here is my card for today, enjoy!

The sky was done digitally by using the gradation feature on my software
then I just plucked in some stars using my paint tool in various sizes.
______________________________________________

MHKDesigns vintage images work so well with each other.
I invite you to check out her Etsy store and see for yourself
the versatility of stamp sets and variety of digital papers we have to offer
_____________________________________________

The witches, berry bush, and sky were all printed out I then added my own color
using colored pencils. It all came together to form a fantastic Halloween card.
The sentiment is actually black but all it took to change the text 
was the color bucket feature on my software. Also notice it is not white but a light blue. It is meant to make the eye go to the moon then the sentiment.

Challenges Entered:
Creative with Stamps: Challenge #6: Photo Inspiration- Autumn Colors

 


So don't be afraid to electronically color backgrounds, images, and even sentiments then print it out. Afterwards, you can use traditional methods to enhance your design.

I will encourage you to stop by the MHKDesigns blog to see more inventive ideas from our design team, play along with our monthly challenge, or just enjoy a bit of eye candy.

There is a lot more to discover at MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Stop on over and see what we have to offer. It is certain to spark the imagination. So, thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon. Take care and happy crafting.
