MHK Designs - Thank You


     Today's designer inspiration for MHK Designs is a simple make that just had to be a poppy, the sentiment completes it. Here in the UK it is Armistice Day today which we mark by wearing the poppy as a symbol of remembrance, sadly it is not just those lost in WWI that we now remember but all those lost in conflict.
     The backing paper is from World Traveler, printed as a watermark, so that it's faded, and in black and white to achieve a grey look. The letter paper was then over printed with a poppy taken from Perfect Poppies and the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts.
     The poppy is coloured with alcohol markers in shades of red and green, with bronze foil added to the centre to give just a little lift to the design.
     Once finished the paper was stuck on to a black card die cut tag leaving a small border all the way around, with the addition of red ribbon the tag is complete.
