MHKDesigns January Challenge

Happy New Year, friends! 
May 2017 bring you good health, love, joy, peace and success.

Here we are - at our very first MHKDesigns Challenge for 2017. Regular players will notice a few changes. MHKDesings has a new look in fun, vibrant colours. Our Design Team has grown and we've gained FOUR new members: Asmah Zainal Abidin, Dawn Bennet, Monica Taylor and Tasha a.k.a. Crafty Pink Pixie. Our monthly challenge now begins on the 1st of each month and will end on the last day of the month. Winners will be announced on the 15th of the following month.

We want to keep our challenges fun and simple, so each each month you will get  a photo and colour swatch prompt. YOU decide which you're inspired by to create your work of art. It can be either or both. AND you are free to make what ever paper project you fancy - a card, scrapbook layout, a tag, a box, art journal page... you choose! The options are limitless. Here is the Prompt for this challenge:

The Design Team will be showcasing products from MHKDesigns Etsy Shop and we would love to see you use them too. If you do, the challenge theme is Anything Goes. However, you are free to use any products and enter the challenge to win some fabulous goodies by MHKDesigns.

2016 has been a strange old year. While the new year is about looking forward, I wanted to take a moment to remember some of the great souls who helped shape our past and may still influence our future. My card features the floral sprig and sentiment from the  Perfect Poppies digi stamp set.

I coloured the image with Faber Castell Polychromos and glammed it with a some Wink of Stella Clear glitter and a few pale pink bling.
