Melissa, you have just created the "Devoré velvets" technique in paper crafts! Google it to see this lovely fabric. This is amazing and I can't wait to try this technique. You are a genius and thank you so much for sharing!


Wonderful!! that's awesome.

What a beautiful technique! Your flowers are so amazing! I can't wait to give this a try. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.


What a clever idea! Another beautiful flower tutorial to add to our crafting toolbox! What is the name of the stamp set you used on the white card stock (stamped in aqua mist (?) and lime ice)?

Fabulous technique! Texture and dimension...Love Love, Love!

Thanks too, for encouragement to avoid the fear of failure in the creative process. (from the meet and greet video) I think I have heard you say this before, and I have remembered it often when the creeping fear arises! The beautiful techniques from such talented designers helps overcome as well!


Oh my, Melissa, what stunning flowers. Thought the tea dyed ones were for me but that's changed to these beauties! What a brilliant look you have achieved, can't wait to try them sometime. Thank you as always for the inspiration.

Melissa, that is such a brilliant idea! I really love the texture the pulled apart clay gives to the vellum! WOW! I may not have had any muslin to play with, but I do have paperclay, so here I go! ;)


Wow, just wow! How you even thought to try that is amazing. I love this look. Too many ideas for one day. I had to laugh because one of the other gals just said not to put it through our die cutter wet and then you show us how to do it for a very cool look.

What a clever idea! The card is beautiful!


As soon as I buy some paperclay, I am going to try this technique. The subtle texture it adds it gorgeous.
