McMahon Five Designs New Releases 8/4/11


Do you have a crafting bucket list?  Well, I  have not actually written it down, but I do have a number of things I would like to try- and a Gothic Arch card is one of them.  When I saw the new release at McMahon Five Designs this week, I was immediately drawn to this Water Nixie image- perfect for an arch card.  While it looks like it could be challenging to color, it was very easy... I printed out the image on Cryogen White cardstock- it is very shimmery IRL.  I colored the image with Copic markers, and added dimension by coloring parts of additional images that I printed and cut out and 'layered up'.  On the top layer, I only glued down the center so there would be some dimension.

 Challenges:
Crafts and Me-Anything goes
Ambers Crafts and Stuff-Sparkle and Shine (Sparkly, shimmery cardstocks)
For Fun-anything goes
Sparkle Creations- Anything goes
For Your Inspiration- Color Inspiration

Thanks for stopping by! Shelly
