Color on a Cover Plate

I now have 2 PTI Cover Plates & the new MIM challenge is to add color to one.  That gave me a good reason to open the Garden Gild Cover Plate & give it a try. Decided to go with the simple technique of watercoloring with Distress Inks.  I used my black Distress Marker to color the border.  Some of the inks were blended on the card front which does really change the look, as Laura showed in the video.  Once dry, I covered it all with Wink of Stella & used my favorite Perfect Paper Adhesive to attach it to the card.
The "Hello" Noted PTI die cut was sent to me by Martha, so I can see if I want to buy the die. I black embossed it & the sentiment from Wonderful Words: Hello. Finished off with clear sequins & tiny pearls. I'm also entering Anything Goes at Addicted to Stamps & SSS Monday, Summer.
Distress Inks: barn door, victorian velvet, spun sugar, dusty concord, weathered wood, pine needles, bundled sage, squeezed lemonade
Thanks so much for stopping by.

  1. Hi Greta! This is lovely. You made coloring on the Gild CP die cut look easy! I was trying my hand at coloring the peony one yesterday, so I know it's not as easy as it looks. Sweet colors and I really like the pearls too. Thanks for playing over at ATSM #151 AG. Melissa DT

  3. Oh Greta, you enable me every time I come here. I hadn't made any 4th cards. Then i saw yours and decided to make just two, one for each of our sons and families. I also have this die and it is all cut out and I was thinking of coloring it. Now that I've seen yours I am really going to do that too! What are we going to do next?! Have a great, relaxing 4th weekend.

    You ROCKed the MIM!

    The "Hello" die is actually the "Noted Die".
