MHK Designer Inspiration: Rocky

     My inspiration this month is made using a butterfly image from Beginnings and Endings and a sentiment from Stitched Sunflower.
     The backing paper has been made using the image placed at random across the page in Publisher, when printed I have used the draft function to get a faded look. Once cut to fit my card blank I have used Broken China Distress Ink to colour the edges so it matches the mat layer and the main image.
     The main image is coloured with watercolour pens, spritzed with a pearl spray and then cut out. It is stuck flush to the card along it's body but has foam pads under it's wings so they stand up a little, with hand drawn antenna.
     The sentiment has been cut out then had the corners rounded, this has also been inked to match the colour scheme. It is stuck on very thin foam pads. The mat layer is pearl paper which luckily matches the butterfly and the inking.
     It's a very simple card but that's sometimes just what we need, relatively easy to make, with a simple but uplifting comment.
     Come and join in our challenge, you don't have to use MHK Designs images but we would love it if you did. If you don't have any MHK Designs yet then this could be your chance to win some.
