Make it Monday – Papertrey Ink

As you all know I love learning new techniques.  I found this great tutorial on Nicole Heady’s blog for Make it Monday’s project this week and I definitely wanted to share it.   It calls for using cover plate dies in a different way.  Her recommendation was to offset the same die to create a shadow.  Instead of doing that, I took the Center State Die cover plate and turned it upside down.  I used Basic Grey’s “What’s Up” 6 x 6 pack and selected one solid and one with a design.  The sentiment is “lots of love” from Paper Smooches cut on a Simon Says Stamp flag die.  I colored it with copic markers in R05, R24 and R27, then covered it with wink of stella and ended it with diamond glaze from Judikins.

I like the way it came out – what do you think?
