True Love is Rare

PapertreyInk's challenge this week, is to review.
Review all the wonderful tutorials of the past year.
Each one by the talented designers, is a jewel.
 I don't think I missed any.
But the fabulous Laura Bassen's, 'Adding Color to Cover Plates',
fit right into using their new Cover Plate: Gem Stone Die,
and You're a Gem Stamp Set.

Laura's card was MIM #216

She used Zig Watercolor Pens, I used Twinkling H2O's,
to give my gem die cut a bit of shimmer.

I was going for the gemstone, Amethyst,
and sprayed the gems with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst.

Can't wait to use this cover plate again with different gems.

Have a wonderful week!
