Papertrey Ink MIM #201: Cover Plate Stencils and Embossing Paste

Good morning sweet friends!!  I have a fun little card to share with you today for the Papertrey Ink MIM Challenge.  Here's the challenge:

MAKE IT MONDAY #201: COVER PLATE STENCILS AND EMBOSSING PASTE

--Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and a Cover Plate Die stencil.
and here's my take on the Challenge:

I used Betsy Veldman's Beautiful Brushstrokes stamp set and the Chevron Cover Plate for this challenge.  I started by die cutting the Chevron Cover Plate and then adhered the die cut to the white card panel with some Washi Tape.  I spread some Teresa Collins Essential Modeling Paste onto the panel with a spatula tool and let it dry.  Love the dimension it creates!!  I then die cut and stamped the florals with black ink.  I then stamped a light base on the florals and then added some watercolor contrast.  Love, love, love these florals!!

I added some rub ons to add a little more black contrast and then mounted the panel onto a Hibiscus Burst Card base.  I plan on adding a bible verse to the inside for a card to send a bright ray of sunshine to a friend who needs a little encouragment in her day.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog ! I love this sweet card you made. I don't have this stamp set....should have gotten it. I own way too many PTI stamps and dies....is that possible?

Talk about "way cool"! I love the combination of white texture paste with the strip of black design at the top. It really highlights your beautiful focal point!

Absolutely stunning. Love the texture on the raised chevron, and your flowers are just gorgeous. How is it possible that I have already forgotten about this set?
