MHKD January Challenge

Hello, friends!  Welcome to our first MHKDesigns Challenge of 2017. This Challenge is all about keeping it simple and having fun while creating. Each each month you will get  a photo and colour swatch prompt. YOU decide which you're inspired by to create your work of art. It can be either or both. AND you are free to make what ever paper project you fancy - a card, scrapbook layout, a tag, a box, art journal page... you choose! The options are limitless.

The Design Team will be showcasing products from MHKDesigns Etsy Shop and we would love to see you use them too. However, you are free to use any products and enter the challenge to win some fabulous goodies by MHKDesigns. If you use stamps or papers by MHKDesigns you may ignore the Challenge prompt altogether; i.e. it's ANYTHING GOES for you!

Let's take a look at the Challenge prompt:

I made a friendship card featuring the sunflower from MHKD's Stitched Sunflower digi set. I'm also trying to keep it vaguely CAS despite the multiple layers and tiny bling .... Well alright then, it's not CAS! :)

Here's a closer look at the image. I printed out the sunflower and coloured the image with Copic markers. I then used a die to cut out my colored image and for the mat behind it. 

And here's a closer peek at the sentiment:

The winner of this Challenge stands to win some fabulous products by MHKDesigns. So make sure you follow the challenge rules and you'll be eligible for the prize. And if you need a little creative boost, you'll find more inspiration by the rest of the Design Team over at the Challenge Blog. You have until Feburary 1st to link up your project.

Thank you for stopping by today and I'm looking forward to seeing what you create for us this month.
