MHKDesigns - May 2018 Challenge

Hello friends!

It's the first of the month which would usually mean it's time for a new challenge at MHKDesigns, and also for a new set release.  But sadly, Mynn, the very talented owner of MHKDesigns (plus, she makes the most amazing cards!) has made the very tough decision to close the blog. The Etsy store will remain open for the time being at least, but nothing new will be added.  Her focus will be dedicated to being the most amazing teacher to some pretty lucky kiddos!!

The news came as a surprise to myself and the rest of the Design Team, but it's a decision we totally support.  And because most of us already had our cards created for today, we've decided to instead make it a blog hop to say thank you to Mynn for all she's done for us.   I'm also sharing a few other cards I had previously created for the next few months - I hope you enjoy them!

You should have arrived here from Shawna's Blog. :)

Here are 3 cards I created using the stamp set called "Majestic Medallion" (which was to be the May New Release!):

Here is what I created:

Card #1

I watercolored the image and added some Nuvo Shimmer Powder for extra pizazz!  I also added Morning Dew Crystal Drops. A touch of feminine lace tops of this sweet, encouraging card.

Card #2

I printed off the digi and colored with Nuvo Marker Pens. A few Crystal Drops were added as embellishment and some Nuvo Mica Mist Spray to add a little shimmer!  Some sweet lace accented the background.

Card #3

I printed off the digi and added watercolor wash using a "smoosh" technique! A few Crystal Drops were added as embellishment and some Nuvo Mica Mist Spray to add a little shimmer!  Once again, I added some sweet stretch lace to the  background. This card was a little hard to photograph as it uses a foiled paper background!

SO - we would love if you could hop along and leave some final MHKDesigns Love for our dear Mynn!

And the hop order...
