MIM #177 Using Cover Plate Negatives & Tag Your It #4


MIM this week with Laurie Willison, showing us how to 
create with the negatives from our die cuts.
At least I thought it was any die cut.
She actually says to use our cover plates.


First inked my white card stock, using some citrus colors so I could 
play along with the Tag Your It! Challenge.

Then cut the word Fabulous over and over from Block Talk
 (sort of a cover plate), to get the negatives.
They line up easily using the bottom edge as my guide.
Used one of the positive fabulous cuts on my tag, (Tag Sale #6)
'UR' black embossed with Wet Paint alphabet.
Flower medallion made with Bloom Builders and 
a Berry Sorbet flower die cut from Friendly Flowers.
