Love this technique! So much easier than masking with paper. Thanks!

Always love your videos, Melanie. There are so many tips here that I am going to have to watch it over again. LOL

I loved this card and technique so much that I CASEd it immediately with a few changes. I never would have thought to put together the colors and patterns that Melanie did. It's a really striking card! I'm so glad I found my Watercolor Garden paper too. It's gorgeous! I put my GKD basket of patterned paper right next to my STVK and GKD stamp binders since I have a tendency to keep a brand of products together. Fortunately this carnation from Stately Flowers 4 worked. I did darken up the edge of the petals with DR4 after I took the picture as carnation petals are naturally darker at the edge of the petals and it looks much better. I like that you can get a very pretty card that looks lovely without a lot of fuss or a ton of embellishments. Thank you so much for the inspiration Melanie!

This is a perfect card idea for birthdays.  I needed a simple, quick idea to make one today, and this one is perfect.  Thanks Melanie!
