New Every Morning

Hi everyone!
This week's Make it Monday is with Dawn McVey, who show's us how to layer 
images over patterns. Say the word, 'layer', and I love it! 
Dawn demonstrated her layering magic with 3 bg inks, which gives the image a 
different look each time.

Once your stamps are in place in the Misti, it really is easy to do 3 cards.
1st off is this one with snow ink and and Dawn's Cover Up: Hexagons stamp.
I used Dawn's Raspberry Suite sets, combining the floral sets with Cup of Cheer,
a Christmas set I gave a seasonless look to with Gran's Garden & Garden Party.

2nd card's Hexagon stamped with Cocoa Bean.
The tag and card bases were cut from Noted Pinked A2 Vertical Dies.
To give my cup and coffee pot some dimension, I edged them with copics,
G40 & G43, almost a perfect match to Vintage Jadeite.

And the 3rd card inked with a Versa Magic ink called Pumpkin Spice.

Have fun playing along on PTI's blog where you'll find Dawn's video.

All stamps used are from PapertreyInk and if you click on the ones you
like, it'll take you directly to the PTI store. 

Happy Crafting!
