Happy MONDAY, Meljen's fans!  I hope the weekend served you well with some peace and relaxation!   

For today's post, I would like to highlight Melissa's collection of Pre-Colored Digital images!!  Not ALL of Melissa's images are available pre-colored, but every month you will see that she's offering more and more!  You can see them at her website HERE, but check out my creations first, of course!! HEEHEE!!

Using Melissa's Loving Ewe, COLORED image, I pulled together this cute little Valentine for my honey!  I just wanted him to know that I do love him!  I couldn't add bling or glitter to this one, since it was for a "MAN", but he probably wouldn't have minded.  He loves my cards!

What is so fabulous about this, is that I pulled this card together in about 30 minutes!  And if you know me, that is probably a world record!  I am pretty crazy when it comes to card-making, a little bit annoyed if it isn't juuuuust right!  But I found a card sketch laying around and immediately knew that it would work for this image.  Some lovey-dovey-papers by My Mind's Eye really set off my Valentine feel, isn't it cute? (If I do say so myself!)

Next, I used Monkey Toes, COLORED image!  Someone in my extended family is having a baby boy, so I thought I would give this to the baby when he is born.  I love the fact that Melissa colors the images in neutral colors that could go with just about any cardstock or patterned papers!!  Even the blue background on this image (and other images) is kind of like a good pair of denim jeans.  And you know that denim can pretty much be put with any color!  So, just like denim, the blue is pretty much a neutral and you don't need to worry about matching your image to the papers for the most part!

Pre-colored digi images cost a TINY tad more in Melissa's store, but believe me, they are WORTH the extra dollar!  Besides the fact that Melissa takes time to color her images WAY better than any other digi company that I have come across (in MY humble, personal opinion there), she is helping me (AND YOU!!) get a card finished when I am pressed for time!  Trust me, I LOOOVE ALL of my 230+ Copic Markers and I LOOOVE my 128 Prisma watercolor-pencils, too!  But really, these images are colored so superbly that I feel confident still when I use them on a card or tag or decorative item and don't have time to personally color my image myself!  It's still handmade, of course, just handmade QUICKER!!

Not only that, but you know how artists tend to get into a funk and can't find their mojo to pull off their best work at times?  Well, pre-colored images really get me into a positive upswing knowing that at least I am beginning with an UBER CUTE image AND second, that it is already colored for me, to keep that positive flow moving forward!!  And as with other images, pre-colored images by Meljen's Designs are finished in such a fine resolution, you can print them out in larger sizes just to frame and hang in your home!  What a quick (and inexpensive!!) way to make a cute piece of home decor for a baby or child's room, or even for your office!  Melissa's images are so cute and fresh, they will keep you happy while you work!
