This weeks Make it Monday video over at Papertrey Ink involves adding color to cover plates. Check out the great video by Laura Bassen here!
I only have one cover plate die. I bought the PTI's Text Block: Birthday die. I had yet to use it so it was fun to have an excuse to get it out.
Color Throwdown challenge. (I have another card that showcases these colors better so I'll share that card tomorrow.) I decided to use MIM # 204 Watercolor Smooshing to add color to the cover plate. I have always wanted to try this technique and it actually was quite fun! I used watercolor paper to prevent a lot of warping. I thought these colors reminded me of the beach so I made some "waves" using PTI's scallop die from the Nostalgic Notions kit. I was going for a masculine looking card so I forced myself not to add any more embellishments. All in all I think it turned out pretty well since I am terrible at masculine cards.
Thanks for looking! Please come back again!
