MHK Designs August Inspiration


     Hello and welcome to my inspirational project for August at MHK Designs. I have chosen to use the Butterfly Wisdom stamp set again because there are so many things you can do with it.
      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, fussy cut and stuck down on the body only. 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, you could make a set of these in different colour ways for a gift.
     MHK Designs blog has lots of inspiration to show you as well as a challenge for you to enter, you don't have to use one of our images to play along but we would like it if you did, you also have the chance to win a stamp set just by entering.
