A great announcement!

I´m very honored (and very happy!) to announce that I´m part of the Design Team for this new designer Melissa Liban.
Melissa (Missy) is a children illustrator with a style I love and I hope her books and illustrations start being published soon, she is so very talented! A few days ago she opened an Etsy store where you can find her cute digital stamps and clipart.
And while you are curious about Missy take a look at her personal blog, to learn more about her and her drawing, you won´t be disappointed!
Thank you Melissa! I´m very pleased to be part of your DT and looking forward to start working with your cute images. All the best to you!

I don´t remember how I came across Melissa´s blog but I loved her images from the start and asked for her permission to use one of her images to make a card, and she so generously agreed. My first creation was using this cute giraffe
I´m reposting the card here, if you want to see the original post click here.

When she told us she opened an Etsy store I went to see it right away and I found the exact image I was looking for these days, like you read my mind Missy! and this is what I made with it. It´s a very easy card, the ones I like to make most, clean, simple and the image being the focus.

I´m using Bunny and Sunny. On this image I used scraps of paper to paper pierce the umbrella and the bunny raincoat and boots. Shaded them a bit with colored pencils before placing them on the image. The image was colored with colored pencils too and added bit of glossy accent on the rain drops and glitter glue on the puddle. Then I hand drawn a frame around the image with kids markers and added dots of red pearl paint.
I also printed directly onto the card the sentiment, from TLcCreations that embellished with pearled paint and glitter glue.  On the inside I used another sentiment from TLc that reads Brighter days are in your forecast. I made this card for me, to remind me to be patient and no to give up even when hard times are around. ☼

Please, join us at Cute Crafty Land, this is just starting but I´m sure we´ll find lots of fun and cute images, hope to see you there! have a great day

Edited to fix a few things blogger changed on my original post. I lost previous comments by I read them all, thank you so much for leaving them!
