This month we are excited to have Melania Deasy! We hope you enjoy getting to know her a bit better in this month's newsletter.

1. What motivated you to start making cards and begin stamping?
It started in 2011, I saw handmade cards on the internet and I'm very interested in making it. I tried to make one and it got me addicted until now :)

2. You are awesome at ink blending on your cards. How to you find great color combinations? 
I'm inspired by the ink pad colors that I have and sometimes I see color combination on Pinterest or Instagram.

3. Please share advice on finding inspiration/developing creativity in making cards/crafting projects.
I like to make sketches before I make cards. I see the products, imagine things related to it, try to find something unique, sometimes I combine it with another products and begin to sketch. After I had my sketches, I felt I already have the construction and the process will follow to make it more real. 
4. Do you have a specific style that you are comfortable with or like to stick to?
Layered CAS with fun and soft colors 

5. Can you share a favorite card you made previously using Altenew products?
Sure! You can check out one of my favorite cards here

6. We noticed that you love coloring stamped images - do you have a favorite coloring medium and why?
I love using Copic, because it's so easy to use and I can do quick coloring :)

We want to hear from you! Let us serve you better by sharing your thoughts with us. You can take your survey HERE - one lucky winner will receive a $20 Altenew gift certificate on August 23rd. We look forward to hearing from all of you!
