ColourQ 136

Tuesday, May 8, 2012


Wow! It's Tuesday already? 
ColourQ has a beautiful new color challenge for you!


I recently purchased my first impression plates.  I'm a little late to the party, but I couldn't wait to try the 'letter press' technique.  Before embossing the wrought iron I rubbed the plate with ink.  then I ran it through my cuttlebug.  I love the way it came out!





Cardstock: PTI Simply Chartreuse, White
Stamps: PTI Rosie Posie, Pretty Peonies
Ink: PTI Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest
Dies: PTI Rosie Posie Dies, Half and Half Die
Other: PTI Wrought Iron Impression Plate, Summer Sunrise Ribbon
