MHKDesigns: Purple Roses

Hi, friends! I'm so sorry to be incredibly quiet this month, but this last semester of student teaching has been very busy and stressful for me! Luckily, I was able to create a card using this month's FREEBIE panel that's available today on the MHKDesigns blog!  Take a peek at my card...

I decided to keep things CAS this month. I water colored the roses purple and added some glitter and shiny gel pens for added texture. The shine from the roses compliments the shine from the rhinestones that were added at the end of the creating process.

Some ribbon and faux stitching helps to complete this creation. I love the clean feel and pretty colors of this card--what do you think?!  I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends! Hop over to the MHKDesigns blog to grab this freebie panel, and then don't forget to use it to enter our monthly challenge in April! Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

MHKDesigns: March Challenge

Hello, everyone!  Happy March! It's beginning to look like spring here in the Northern Hemisphere, and Easter is upon us, as well, so we've got a photo inspiration challenge to match at MHKDesigns!  Take a peek...

I was inspired by the colors and flowers in the photo. I chose to do a more floral creation this month so I could practice my coloring with Spectrum Noir markers. Check out my creation...

These beautiful flowers are from the Open Bloom set. I used the Spectrum Noir pinks, yellows, and greens to color them in. The shadowing in the image makes coloring them super simple!

The sentiment is from the I've Been Framed set. I printed it onto vellum, then punched it out with a circle punch and framed it with gems. I love the way the border turned out!

The papers I used to accent the card base are from the Trick or Treat and Egg-cellent Easter paper packs. Some ribbon up top ties is all together! I love the way this turned out, and I hope you do, too!  Please do leave me a comment to let me know what you think! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you hop over to join in our monthly challenge at MHKDesigns!  There are prizes for each one, and you can use any products you'd like! :) Don't forget to leave some love with the other gals on this wonderful DT, too!
