McMahon Five Designs New Releases

For the Bonibleaux Designs New Release Blog Hop click HERE

  This weeks new releases at McMahon Five Designs are here!  I saw the Vintage Floral Ribbon image and immediately was inspired to get going on my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary album. Their Anniversary was in 2005.......!  Here is the page I created:
 This is a 12x12 page. I love this picture of my parents wedding, especially seeing my parents and relatives in their younger years.  I used Groovy Guava and Soft Suede SU cardstock behind the photo. I printed the Floral Ribbon image on White and trimmed it, then on Vellum.  I colored the White card stock with Copic markers. I printed out a couple more of the image and trimmed out some of the flowers and butterflies and bees. I placed the cut out white image behind the Vellum, and then backed that panel with Soft Suede card stock.

  I added some Groovy Guava ink to the Prima white roses and added a swirl of half pearls and hat pins to the ribbon.  
Here is a close-up of the trimmed butterflies and the Kaiser flower I sponged ink onto- I added Creative Inspirations Paint in Fairy Dust for glimmer.  I added a 3/8" brown ribbon and some pretty Prima lace.
  There, page one...done......!

I played in some challenges today, which I have linked at the end of the post today.

Here is the remainder of the McMahon Five release for today:
