McMahon Five Designs 8/18 releases

I had fun creating with the new release from McMahon Five Designs this week. 

 This darling skunk is from the Solocosmo line of digital images. I colored the image with Copics on Cryogen White cardstock, and used a few Technique Junkies techniques- namely Decorated Pretties, Out of the box and Cuttlebug Highlights. I used Labels 10 Spellbinders to cut out the image.
 The Sketch is Midnight Madness #117.  I added color to the Prima Cameo Roses with a touch of sponged Red ink. The smaller flowers from Kaiser are stamped and colored with Copics, then spritzed with Smoosh Spray and a rhinestone colored with Copic Y21 was attached to each center.
 The sentiment is from my silly side-made by McMahon Five Designs.  I have one going to college for the first time...and 2 older kids.  I am one of those Mom's that says, "Don't drink and Drive" , or "Make good decisions" every time the kids step out of the house..... I think this is great for college kids and first time drivers......and I am sure there are alot of other good uses for it too!

 For my second card, I went soft and vintage with the image called Safe Return:

   I printed the image on Cryogen White- love the soft sparkle in it- and colored with Copic markers. I used a Blue Linen cardstock from my stash for my base. I added Parisian Accents Spellbinder cut outs in Prima Annalee (musical score) and layered it all on a textured cardstock. The flower was crocheted with red 321 and I added Bakers Twine as a final accent with a gold heart charm embedded in the center.
   Can you see her heart longs for her man's ship to sail in and for him to come running to her when the boat lands and take her in his arms!

Both cards are so different, but so pretty. Love the crocheted flower (wish I could do that) and the skunk is just too cute.
