MIM 216 Adding Color to Coverplates

Today's Make It Monday challege was to use a large die (known as a coverplate because it is usually sized to cover most of the front of a typical A2 sized card) and color it.  I've already used the peony coverplate which was displayed as an example quite a few times, so I looked for something different and came up with these stars!  July 4th will bere before we know it and turning them into firewoeks seemed perfect.  I wish the sparkles on them showed up more, but still they are pretty against a twilight sky.  Used my Kuretke Clear Color pens for the strars.

Card stock:  PTI Stampers Select White
PTI inks for the sky: Lemon Tart, Orange Zest, Melon Berry, Spring Rain
Stars:  Kuretake Clean Color pens, Wink of Stella plus glitter


  1. Great 4th of July card. I really like your background.

  2. How fun and festive! great use of the technique!

  3. Can't get more festive than these colorful stars! Love the sunset bg too!

  4. This is such a fantastic card. I spotted it a couple of days ago when I was looking at the MIM gallery for inspiration. I wanted to let you know that you inspired my card--I decided to use the same hanging star die for my card. Love how you used your water colors, and also made such a pretty sponged background for your card.
