Melanie Muenchinger's illustrator Hop

Hello! I was delighted when Melanie ask me if I would showcase one of her sets. I was her GD for " A Year of Leaves" and that is what I decide to showcase here today. I love this ! It is great staple to have on hand. It is so perfect to use with flowers that I keep some made up just to have on hand. Like the ones I have scattered at the bottom of the card. I used Copic's to color them using G07 and G14. The rose was made out of Cranberry tart PLCS by GKD and a punch. Let me know if you would like more info on making the flower, it's real easy. I curled the leaves gently around a pencil part way to give them more of a 3-D look..

My all time favorite set of Melanies is " A Year of Flowers" and I just could not resist doing a card using that set. I colored the rose with copics. The CS is Gina K. Designs and Basic Grey for the DP. I made the rose smaller by copying and reducing the image using my printer.

Tonight Melanie
has several designing friends sharing samples they
created using some of their favorite sets from Melanie, take a look!
