Waffle Flower Crafts Tile Panel Die

You all know that I love a great cover plate.  This Tile Panel Die designed by my friend JJ Bolton for Waffle Flower Crafts fits that bill.

I really love the design, there are so may different patterns you can create with the tiles, and the space within the design for a sentiment means you can throw a card together quickly without have to think too much about the layout itself.

Normally for these kinds of dies I like to go the colored cardstock route, but I was in a coloring mood.

I went with two color families - greens (G00, G02, G09) and grays (C3, C5, C7, C9) and colored the pieces with the darkest points towards the center of the diamonds so that while this is a very flat card, there's some dimension to it.

I ended up having to use four grays because my C3 started to run out of ink and I don't have a reinker for that one yet, so I had to go a shade darker for two sets of diamonds.  It worked out OK, because I put those darker pieces to work around the sentiment.  This helps zero your eyes in and add some emphasis to that focal point....crisis averted!

The sentiment is from Altenew's Leaf Canopy set.  I thought the modern/mod font matched perfectly with the design.

That's all for me today.  Thanks for visiting!
