MHKD Designer SathyaSankaran

Hi Friends!!

This is my last DT inspiration at MHKDesigns. I had a great year working with the Awesome digisets and Wonderful DT team. Thanks much for this opportunity, Mynn. I learnt a lot from my fellow DTs and this team.

I was asked to share my fave project. As i couldn't pull out just one project out of all my MHKD DT inspirations, i made a collage using my fave digisets.

I absolutely enjoyed working with these Digi sets.

Each card here is SO close to my heart.

Open BloomButterfly WisdomButterfly ElementsBlossoming are my favorites among the digisets of this year.

Hi Crafty pals,

Am at SoSuzystamps today with GDT Day 2 project. You can view Day 1 project here and here

Today’s card is using SoSuzy stamps : “Rose Bloom” and “Forever and Ever

  • I love doing watercolor projects and coloring and so this attempt on noline coloring today.
  • Took a watercolor cardstock and stamped Rosebloom stamp using Antique linen distress ink, being the lightest ink.
  • Then went over with coloring using Zig clean color brushpens.
  • Then masked the whole image using Masking fluid and colored the outline of the bloom and the surrounding area randomly with Light Blue Zig cleancolor brush pens and added water to give a nice waterwash look.
  • After its dried totally, took off the masking fluid by rubbing it, and it revealed the image.
  • Mounted this panel, onto a baby blue A2 sized cardbase.
  • Few baby blue enamel dots are added as accents to finish off the card.

Hope you like my inspiration. Meet you next week with another inspiration.
