Think of Beautiful -- a New Release for MHKDesigns

It's Day 2 of New Releases at MHKDesigns.    I think this might be my favorite of the 5 days of new releases.  But, maybe it's tomorrow's, or Friday's?  Anyway, I really, really like today's new release and all the possibilities of it.

This is what I created with Beautiful Bottles, and MHKDesign's digi papers, French Country : 

I printed 3 of the bottles and a sentiment from the Beautiful Bottles set onto Kraft paper.  I printed each bottle twice.  I colored the bottles with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils, fussy cut them, and glued them to the original printed layer, using 3D foam squares on one layer.  The designer papers are all from the French Country collection.  The tie dye crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM.

You'll want to visit the MHKDesigns blog to see what the rest of the uber talented design team did with this beautiful new release.  It will be definitely worth the trip! 

That's it for day 2.  Come back tomorrow to see what else is in store this week!  Isn't this fun?!?

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Not Just Cards -- ATG
D.L. Art -- August Linky Party

Lemon Shortbread -- ATG
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday -- no twist this week
The Pencil Case -- ATG

  1. Oh this is so beautiful & elegant Julie! Love it!

  2. What a gorgeous card Julie! Like your coloring and the ribbon!

  3. Oooo, I love your coloring on these bottles, Julie! I received my first set of Lyra pencils in the mail late last week but am still practicing with them and don't have any finished works as yet. Seeing this gives me real hope of adding to my coloring skills (?) and being able to accomplish softer, gentler coloring. :-D

  4. Kraft paper is perfect with those vintage bottles :) Hugs...Janie
