Yeah!! I got my new Impressibilities in the mail today! I couldn't wait to play! Isn't it SUPER fun?! When I saw these at Cut at Home, I had to have them. I bought this butterfly plate and a flower plate that I will make goodies with later. This was a great excuse to make a card for Kelly Jo's Color Chef Challenge #5. I used the watercolor technique to stamp my butterfly. Just simply ink up your stamp the way you want, then spritz it with water before you stamp it. It gives your image a really cool blended watercolor effect.
So, how I used the Impressie......
I ran the plate with the embossing mat through my Cuttlebug to emboss the image. Then I simply sponged creme brulee ink all over with the darker goldrush ink on the outer edge. This really made the image pop. Can't wait to try it with darker cardstock and sanding. You can also use the plate like a letter press (which will take me a few tries to figure out).
