Fifth and Final Release Set for August - MHK Designs

     Here's the fifth and last set in this August release from MHK Designs and I can't tell you how much I love the gorgeous pansies in "Pansy Corner."  You can see a photo of the complete set at the bottom of this post.  For now, here's a card showcasing the image and one of the sentiments.


     This time I used my new Lyra pencils to color the image because I wanted a very soft-looking pallette.  The image is printed right onto the card front and that means another really CAS design.

     I decided to use the sentiment as the only 'embellishment' so I cut it with a scalloped, stitched die (Memory Box), and then cut two more of those shapes with the same die, this time cutting from scraps of lavender and red violet CS.  I layered those together in an interesting pattern and adhered them to the card front.  Voila!, the sentiment looks like an embellishment.  :-D

It's gorgeous and you showcased it perfectly by printing directly on the front base. I haven't heard of those pencils, but they certainly worked well.
