MHKD Designer Inspiration : SathyaSankaran

Hi Crafty Friends!

Am back from Long Vacation at India and hope to come back to my Routine life, without being homesick bug bitten!!

Am here today with this month's Designer Inspiration,using Butterfly Wisdom Digi stampset at MHK designs. This is one of those cards which i did in June, before started to vacation :)


 Its one of my most Favorite set among all MHKD digi images. And i love to find ways to use this beautiful set.

Took a watercolor paper, tored the central portion and rolled those edges. Then using Gelatos in the colors of blue, purple colored the card using water to reduce the darker tones.



Butterflies from Butterfly wisdom are printed, colored using Faber castell bicolor pencils in the shades of blue, purple. Those are fussy cut and mounted using foam adhesives on the focal panel.

The sentiment is printed and and centrally placed under the torn central portion of the focal panel.
Few baby blue pearls are added randomly to highlight the focal panel.



This panel is then mounted onto the base cs, which is a baby blue A2 prescored cardbase using foam adhesives.

Hope you like this simple card!

Am excited to welcome you to the August 2016 MHK Designs release. We have some really fun sets to check over the next few days, as well as chances to win either one of the sets OR all of them!.

Halloween party is the Digi on focus :) 




My take on this set!




Its my ever first try at Halloween card. Took a vanilla colored  A2 sized base cs. Started to distress with a series of Distress inks. Mustard seed, Wildhoney and Rusty Hinge. And then slightly sponged the Rusty hinge distressed area with Black soot Distress ink.

The image is printed on a cs and colored using Fabercastell bicolor pencils. And its matted with a black cs and kept this focal card on the base cs.

Double stitched black ribbon is added on the bottom of the card, and the sentiment banner is added on top of it.

As a final touch, 3 pairs of Googly eyes are added to create a spooky effect :)

Hope you like the card.
