MAKE IT MONDAY CHALLENGE
ADDING COLOR TO COVER PLATES

Laura's up this week and showing us her tips for adding color to Cover Plate die cuts.  I like how her pretty card came out and thought I should give this technique a try.  You can follow along with her video demo HERE.

Oh I wish I could have captured how pretty the turquoise shimmer paper is.  I colored the tree/flowers on my cover plate with traditional colors instead of the outside-the-box-colors Laura suggested  ;-)
