Make it Monday #216: Adding Colour to Cover Plates

Happy Canada Day!  Well, it's nice to be back! I've missed the challenges lately due to busy-ness, but at least we have a freshly painted interior of our house. I found picking the paint rather challenging, though--it's not like choosing paper for a card! And I'm exhausted from moving furniture, books and other paraphernalia!! Heaven help me if we ever have to move...

The challenge this week was to colour a Cover Plate, so I used the new "Waves" plate from PTI. Instead of just doing the plate, however, I painted the whole thing. I liked the texture that the negative portions of the waves gave to the whole panel. I used Distress Inks to paint a panel of watercolour paper, adding the Lighthouse and sentiment from the new "Guiding Light" stamp set and dies. (Must practice stamping these lighthouses, though...)

Thanks for looking!
