MHKDesigns Inspiration Post


                                                
 Donna here with my monthly inspiration post for MHKDesigns:

 
I used Beautiful Bottles  from the July release, this is a fabulous set and the creations by the  design were amazing, you may want to go back and check them out
First I printed the bottle and saying on vellum and as soon as they came off the printer poured gold embossing powder over the print and them embossed.  I layered on a glossy white paper with just a tinge of pastel color to it.  My background is of 1/4 inch strips of paper glued to a sheet of paper and trimmed to 5 1/4" by 4" and then embossed with an embossing folder and layered on gold.  This would be a good technique to use up scraps of papers.

This card is great! Love the way you used the strips for the background and embossed. The bottle turned out great and
love the saying. Mom

Your layout of paper strips is great for using both scraps and Washi tapes, love the look of it. Great idea to use the die cut panel as a table cloth to ground the perfume bottle. Very clever detailing on here, Donna.

A super background Donna. Certainly a good way to use up strips of paper. We certainly all have lots of those. The bottles are a lovely set too. Barbxx
