PTI-Make It Monday

Hello! Just popping in to share a Make It Monday video that I have over on the Papertrey Ink blog. I’m sharing a couple of ways to add color to your cover plates.PTI-Peony Cover PlateFor my first project I added color to the Peony Cover Plate using Copic Markers with some subtle ink blending on the card base.
PTI-Peony Cover PlateOn my next card I used one of the Zig Clean Color Markers in Carmine Red to add color to the In the Woods Cover Plate.
PTI-In the Woods Cover PlateI also added some subtle aqua ink blending to the card base. I was going with a “under the sea” approach?? Is that a stretch? Maybe so. If not that then maybe a Japanese Cherry Blossom.
PTI-In the Woods Cover PlateHere’s a video to show you how I made these two projects.
If you feel inspired to color one of your cover plates, feel free to join & link up your project over on the Papertrey Ink blogΒ for your chance to win $25 to spend at PTI. I’ll be checking the entries, so I’d love to see what you come up with! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. So amazing! Love how your colored cover plates pop against the soft colored backgrounds! Love your name of Ziggy’s too because who can remember their full name? πŸ˜‰

  2. Beautiful cards. Love the coloring. And yes, the second one does look like an under water scene.

  3. GASP! Absolutely GORGEOUS! Love everything about your cards. Under the sea/cherry blossoms lol, both match πŸ˜‰

  4. Absolutely love these! I don’t have any cover plates, but now I think I just might need some. ^_^ Thanks for sharing, and thank you for the video.

  5. Both of these cards were gorgeous! But I especially loved the “in the woods” card – as you (and a couple of commenters said) it does look like an underwater scene. What fun!

  6. Really pretty cards Laura. I had heard of cover plates, but, didn’t really know how to use them. Thanks for showing me. I’m going with the name “ziggy” too. Much easier to say.

  7. Just lovely, Laura! I’m so happy to learn about a new way to personalize cover plates. I’m really enjoying my Ziggy’s, too! β™‘

  8. You always come up with the best ideas, Laura! LOVE both of your beautiful cards! Thanks for showing us the way πŸ™‚

  9. awesome cards and technique Laura – watched your MIM video and had fun watching how you make your cards. I have yet to buy Zig pens but maybe I will buy a couple soon. TFS CS

  10. Gorgeous cards Laura, now, do you have a short name for the Japanese watercolor tumbae saki?
    I can’t pronounce the whole thing even as a read it πŸ™‚

  11. Oh, MY!!! You are a graduate course in INSPIRATION all wrapped up neatly in the images in your mind transferred to miracles of color on paper! WOWZA!!! Now, what I do when I’m working on my cards is have your videos running along side me so that I can always use your creations as inspirations! Thank you SO MUCH for all that you share with us!

  12. LOL – “Ziggies” – love it!

    Your cards are phenomenal Laura and your videos are always so entertaining too!!
