They're all gorgeous, Melissa, but the last one really grabbed my attention--love the color combo & use of Rosie Posie! Thanks for the inspiration!


Wow! Love these cards and the techniques used. You are a wonderful artist.


I can't pick a favorite from these - they're all just too gorgeous! Love this technique and the inspiration it brings!

Thank you for the tip of putting the secondary stencil on the bottom to get added depth. I'll have to give this a try since I've always layered the stencils the other way. And as usual, your cards are fabulous, Melis. So cheerful. I've been playing around with the Rosie Posie sets lately and love the colors you used. Also, thank you for taking us along on your vacation. It's been wonderful seeing another part of our country through your eyes.
