MHKDesigns: September Challenge


Hi, friends! Happy September! I'm here to share some cards I made using the inspiration from this month's challenge at MHKDesigns! Take a peek at the inspiration...


I LOVE the autumnal feel of this photo--and that gorgeous mum! It led me to use the Mum's the Word set to create a trio of cards. All of the cards use the same layout but I did some "digital magic" to create different color schemes. Here's the set...


I used brushes in Photoshop to create a watercolor background and a faux emboss resist. I made a video on how to create this effect and shared it yesterday, but hop over to my YouTube channel if you'd like to recreate it! I started with a red tone...


Then I decided to try a more mellow magenta. I love the way the image and sentiment from the Mum's the Word set POP with these colors!


Last up was blue tones! The greens in this color scheme turned out a bit more brown, but I think that just adds to the charm of the card.


I used coordinating ribbons to finish off each card. I really adore the way this set turned out, and I hope you like them, too! Please leave me a comment below to let me know your thoughts!


Thanks for stopping by, friends! Come join in the fun on the MHKDesigns blog for your chance to win some digi goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!

Hi Mynn, I just found your blog through an old card you uploaded on SCS. I had to check out your blog because my maiden name is Kitchen. Glad I did because your work is beautiful!
