First Day of New Release at MHK Designs

     I'm so excited about the latest release at MHK Designs!   Over the next 5 days, our DTs will be showcasing the newest sets so be sure to check the main MHK Designs blog to see them all.  Since I'm gone much of this month, I only have two of the sets to share but I love them all.

     The first set is called "Beachy Keen" and I had so much fun playing with it.  Both the image and the sentiment are included in the set and you can see a photo of the set at the very bottom of this post.


     I used my ProMarkers and some chalk markers to color the image, then added a tiny bit of glitter and some white gel ink to the ocean.  I used a die from Spellbinders to cut the random shape around the image, and you can see the actual shape of the die in the dark blue CS 'bunting' I added to two sides of the image.

     I wrapped twine around the dp and then added the two little shell charms, finally adhered the sentiment and called it finished.

     Challenges:
Artistic Inspirations
Chalk n Stock
Crafting from the Heart
Craft Your Passion
Crazy Challenge (twine/digi/die cut)
Cutie Pie
Dream Valley
Outlawz Greetings
Simon Says Stamp
Where the HeART Is

     Be sure to check out the MHK Designs blog to see what everyone else has done with this delightful set.  It's just so perfect for a summery June project.  Be sure to check out the MHK blog each day and I'll be back on Sunday with another MHK Designs release.   You definitely don't want to miss that one!  :-D   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie



Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.
