MHK Designer Inspiration - Rocky

     Hello and welcome to my inspirational project for August. I have chosen to use the Butterfly Wisdom stamp set again because there are so many things you can do with it and who doesn't like butterflies.
      This is just a simple card that makes a great everyday greeting,  you can jazz it up to be a birthday card or a get well message.
     I have printed the main image panel from the set at 70% opacity so it comes out a little bit lighter than the usual black. Using an alcohol marker I have coloured the background but not the butterflies.
     The acetate butterfly is printed at full strength black on to medium weight printable acetate and also coloured with alcohol markers. It is a little smaller than the one on the card but it doesn't seem to show  much because he's got his wings bent up in flight.
     The image panel has a narrow dark green mat layer on to a white card blank, very simple and relatively quick to make too.

     Don't forget to come and join us in our challenge, you don't have to use an MHK Designs image to enter but we would love it if you did.
