PTI MIM #230: Cover Plate Watercoloring

I know, I know, I can't believe it either. Today is only Monday, and I watched Ashley's video on Nichole's blog for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday. It was all about using a cover plate with watercolors. Well, that was pretty easy since I only own the Hexagon one, but what to do with it was the real challenge at hand. Without any further excuses, here's my card.




I taped my Hexagon Cover Plate mask down pretty well with painter's tape and held it in places while I watercolored some of the hexagons in two colors. Then I misted the card with the mask still in place using Perfect Pearls Mist. Die cut Spruce and Sprigs, stamped with Scarlet Jewel and Ripe Avocado inks, and Peace from Wet Paint Holiday three times for dimension. The white card base was covered with a layer of Spring Rain and the watercolored piece was popped up using foam tape. It's definitely not on the same level as Ashley's, but I completed the challenge the best I could with supplies I had.

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, and Spring Rain
Ink: Scarlet Jewel and Ripe Avocado
Stamps: Spruce and Sprigs 
Dies: Spruce and Sprigs, Wet Paint Holiday and Hexagon Cover Plate

I love the Hexagon Cover Plate. I like how you centered just a small portion on your card. I just might have to pull mine out!

The hexagon background is terrific! Love how the Perfect Pearl mist left other hexagon shapes outside of the painted ones! Love the sprigs, too! Isn't that a great stamp and die set?!
