MHK Designs Monthly Inspiration


     With Valentine's Day a few days away I decided to use one of my favourite sets to make a card. This set has several frames and sentiments which can all be mixed to create many variations.
     I thought black was a little harsh so this is printed in dark grey with a hint of dark pink straight on to a postcard page from World Traveller that has a pink overlay.
     The mat layer was white card until I coloured the edge with ink, the same ink was used to gently colour the edge of the white card blank aswell.
     With the addition of a few tiny red gems to add sparkle the card is complete. The dark pink gives the card a vintage look which goes well with the backing paper.
     I used to think digi's were just printed out in black on white and coloured in, but now I have learnt there is a whole host of things you can do to them before they ever see a printer. I would suggest if you have a photo package on your computer that you start to experiment, there will be no going back and being able to manipulate the designs means you get even more value for money!
