Hello friends. Because it was such a COLD day here today, I stayed in and played in my stamp room and made a card for the current Make it Monday challenge. I wasn't going to play this week as I only own one cover plate and feel like I use it for every challenge that uses cover plates. I also don't own any embossing paste. (may need to rectify that!) I've still been following the different cards that have been entered, and a few of the gals have said they used Glossy Accents with the stencils they made from their cover plates....hmmmmmmmm.....I could do that! Wasn't as easy for me as it sounded! The Glossy Accents kept getting under the stencil and just looked really messy! I finally got one to come out that looked kind of ok, so I went with it. Take a look:
The original plan had been to have the chevrons covering the whole background, but I was so happy to finally get 2 that didn't look terrible, that I quit and said that 2 was just fine! :0) The rest of my card was inspired by a beautiful card I saw on one of the 8th Anniversary challenges where they used mostly black and white flowers from the "Doodlie-Do" stamp set. I also added a flower from "Beautiful Blooms" and leaves from "Pretty Petals" stamp sets. My sentiment is from "Wet Paint" dies and stamp set. I finished with a couple of enamel dots.
Lots of beautiful inspiration and Laurie's card and video over on Nichole's blog that you can check out right here.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! :0)
