In Bloom Lettpress-style

After seeing a few examples of letterpress using PTI's Impression plates, including the great explanation by Pine, I wanted to give it a try!

I was pretty happy with the result. I used some chalk ink by Colorbox. Have you had good results using different kinds of inks?

Here's a close up:

Do you think these could work as Christmas cards? Any suggestion where I could add the sentiment...I didn't want to cover up any of the front.

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous!!! You could add a tag with a sentiment, or just leave as is, which I would probably do. Love this.

Stunning!! this turned out really pretty Melissa!so impressive!

Gorgeous!!! I don't really love floral prints but this is fabulous.

Belinda said...

Lovely! You could use some of the ribbon sliders to put a sentiment where the ribbon is already covering or just do an inside sentiment!

Stunning cards Melissa! How about on the inside?

Beautiful!! I don't think a small sentiment tag would cover up too muc hof this lovliness. How about a small oval sentiment over the ribbon or near it or ribbon sliders like Belinda said.

Nancy said...

Gorgeous! A tag hanging from the ribbon or a slider would be pretty

Gorgeous!

One year I embossed the sentiment right on the ribbon with white e.p for my New year's cards..why not try that?!
