Medallion Coverplate Card

Happy Tuesday crafty friends!
I'm up on the Kat Scrappiness blog today and
I've got a new card to share with you!

Today is a special day on the blog because it is day 1 of of the New Releases
and not only is Kat releasing some fabulous new dies
but there is a GIVEAWAY as well!

The newest die in the collection being released today is called the
This intricate die will quickly become a favorite of yours and I've
done some watercoloring with gold accents using this new die.
Here is the card I made and I will walk you through the process I used to make it.

Step 1:  First I took Salty Ocean and Lucky Clover Distress Ink and I "smooshed" them
down onto my Tim Holtz glass media mat and then sprayed them with water.
 Next I cut a piece of watercolor paper down just slightly larger than the
Medallion Coverplate die and laid it into the ink, moving it around to
spread the ink all over the paper.  I dried it with my heat gun and 
then pressed it down again into the ink to cover the paper.

Step 2: Once I was happy with the background pattern I did some ink splattering 
with the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors in gold all over the background with a 
large fan brush. It added a really nice shine to the panel!

Step 3: When the entire panel was dry I took it over to my die cut machine and 
used the Medallion Coverplate die to cut it out. 

Step 4: Because the die is so intricate I used Elmer's spray adhesive to mist 
the back of the panel so I could adhere it to my card front. This technique
works very well on dies with lots of intricate cuts.

Step 5: Now that the panel was done and adhered to the card, the final step
was to stamp the sentiment.  I stamped an older Happy Birthday stamp from 
my stash on to some vellum with Delicata Gold Ink and heat embossed it with 
I cut out the sentiment with the smallest die from the Double Stitched Circles Dies.

Step 6: I added the vellum circle to the middle of the Medallion Coverplate panel 
with some liquid adhesive making sure to only get the glue behind the letters so
it wouldn't show through.

I really love how the watercoloring came out so randomly all over the coverplate and the
gold paint gives it a very elegant look!
I hope you enjoyed seeing the process I took to make this card!
