McMahon Five Designs 5/26/11

McMahon Five New releases are out- I used Corset and I let the paper inspire me today.

  I was determined not to use Pink, I found this Prima Madeline paper and went with it!  The colors for accent are SU Forest Foilage and Chocolate Chip. I printed the image on Neenah paper and colored the image with Prismacolor pencils blended with Gamsol.  I have a color chart on my sidebar from SCS that matches cardstock colors to Prismacolor pencils and Copics (Thank You Cheryl!).
  The color match for Forest Foilage is 907. I used French Grey 10% on the main body of the Corset, and then used Gamsol and blended in a subtle 907 shading over that.  The bow is 'Layered up' and I added Creative Inspirations paint Fairy Dust to the top layer of the bow and to the main body of the corset.

I added a shade of green to the border of the image panel (Wisped Frames) and added 'Curled Corners' another Technique Junkies technique. I used the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge to inspire me, so added a lace border to the top and bottom with a Zig Zag and added some card stock 'wound up' for three little flowers. I added Stickles to the top of the flowers for some shimmer. 

I have another project to share with you. 
I found a template on Mel's Blog (Thanks You) for a darling purse template. 
This set is so shimmery!  I used Rose Quartz Mica Metallic cardstock for this PINK purse. I added score lines, then added rhinestones in pink at all of the intersections. The flowers are colored with Copic markers R81, R83, R85, and then I added a SU filigree brad finding. I made notecards that fit in the purse with the McMahon Five Awareness Freebie.

That is the same pink- the white shows off how shimmery it really is. 

I had to make another purse and I used Poptones black cardstock for this one.
I just love the way a few pearls and bling can accent plain cardstock!  The butterfly (a digi from McMahon Five) is colored with Copics and I added Stardust Gelly Roll pen for shimmer.  I put the red cardstock in the crimper, and ran the Gelly roll pen along the ridges.  I will include 4 of these little cards in the purse.

These are some striking projects! I think the colors you used on the corset card are really striking - You could give it to a special man with a sentiment like "you really know how to strip me bare" (sorry, first thing that I could think of). Your purses are adorable, and I love how different they look with different papers!

Especially like the black purse made from cardstock. Do you have directions on how to make this?

Really cute card! I love corsets though I would never be happy wearing one! Love the colors you chose too. Nice to see that you didn't use the traditional pink usually associated with these vintage garments. Thanks for playing with us at Amber's Crafts and Stuff. I hope you'll join us again very soon.
