McMahon Five Designs New Releases 5/17/11 and COPS

   For the McMahon Five Designs release today, I used a digital image called Iris.
     I colored the image with Copic markers and added highlights with a yellow Copic Spica pen.  The patterned papers are Prima Annalee and the purple cardstock is Eggplant Envy by SU.  I used the Lotus Spellbinders die and the Parisan Accents die for the corners. I used the Technique Junkies 'Level up' technique plus the Wisped Frames technique. Sentiment is by Create with TLC.                               
  
                                                    This is a close-up of the Iris image
  I split a couple of areas of the iris on the top layer, and propped them up for a bit of dimension.

  Next, I made up a card using the new Awareness freebie from McMahon Five Designs. I made the ribbon in honor of COPS- Concerns of Police Survivors.  Grab your awareness freebie HERE - I will post it on my sidebar this weekend.


Thanks for stopping by!
