Love the soft look of today's first card, it is just so delicate and girly! Thanks for sharing your technique to get this look.

Wish you would do a video showing just how you blend out the watercolors. I didn't like when they moved your image to the bottom of the design team images, but now love it knowing they saved the best for last! I always think I can get by without a set until I see what you've done with it. These flowers are just beautiful!


Hi Melis, love the vintagey feel! The colors are so soft and feminine, just like you! Thanks for sharing and always inspiring me.


Your first card stopped me in my tracks! Such pretty coloring Melissa!
