MHK Designs August Release: Serene Seaside


Welcome to day two of the MHK Designs August release.  To visit Mynnette's Etsy store, click HERE.  I have no doubt there is something for everyone.

The next set that I got to work with, was Serene Seaside.

 Here is the card I made.

The nautical theme is popular these days.  I wanted to create something with this awesome anchor, so I enlarged it and paper pieced it with some light aqua patterned paper.  You can't see it that well, but in real life, it adds a little bit more interest.  I masked it, so I could stencil the background, to look a bit like netting.  I then added a bit of sea green colored splatters to the top left and bottom right.  I didn't want to hide the anchor, so I printed the sentiment on vellum, and added it over the anchor.  I like how it turned out.  This sentiment is perfect for a special someone I'm going to send it to, who just happens to live on the East Coast.  I hope he likes it.  I'm going to submit this card for the following challenges.

Crafty Cardmakers #145: Warm Summer Colors (The nautical theme reminds me of summer, hope this counts)
Love To Scrap #60:  Anything Goes
Ooh La La #187: For The Boys

We would love it if you helped us celebrate Mynn's new crafty endeavor.  We hope you'll be inspired, and will join us for this months release.  I can't wait to see what you come up with, using these gorgeous new digi's.
