Today's MIM challenge was to use a coverplate diecut to create a shadow effect. What intrigued me was the idea of using mutiple cuts in different colors from the same die. I wanted to use the Art Deco die as the coverplate, but it didn't lent itself too much to a true shadow effect since it is so architechural. Nevertheless, it does look great with the alternating cardstock colors. I continued this layering effect with the leaves and the darling bird from the Songbird die set.
It's dreary here in St. Louis! I wish we would get some snow-- it keeps going just to the north of us. This little card is cheerful and sunny. Spring is on its way.
