MHKDesigns: Recoloring a Digital Sentiment

Hi, friends! I hope your September was wonderful! I'm back with another card using digital products from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop today. Today I'm sharing a card that uses the Stitched Tea Party set. Take a peek...

This card is one layer, y'all! I had lots of fun using my Digital Paper Fill technique for the scene. I used papers from the Sunflower Sampler and Get Well Flowers paper packs. A few brown gems and some glitter add texture and shine!

I decided to deck out my sentiment, too! I recolored part of it to match with the color scheme I had chosen for my scene. For details on how I colored just part of the sentiment and tips on other ways to alter sentiments, check out my latest YouTube video!

I think this card is super fun and I hope you agree! I can't wait to hear your thoughts about my card in the comments below! :)

That's all I have for you today, friends! Thank you so much for stopping by! I always love to hear from you, so please do let me know your thoughts in the comments below! Don't forget to head over to the MHKDesigns blog for more inspiration and join in our *NEW* challenge tomorrow for your chance at winning some digital goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!

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!
