Here's my card:
I tried something a little different with my Art Squares today - gel printing! Using acrylic paint on my Gelli Plate, I printed several layers on Dark Cream Art Squares (four 1.5" squares and one 3" square), and then stamped and painted leaves over the prints with the same paints.
The Art Squares turned out to be a great surface for the gel prints, with clean lines from the stencils, and quick dry time. I've only done gel printing on glossy papers, so I was really pleased to know that these matte finish matboard squares will work as well.
Here's the card at an angle so you can see the shine of the gold Lumiere paint. Love that stuff! For the veined pattern, I used my favorite texture plates for gel printing - they're Animal Skins Rubbing Plates (I think that one is the elephant, but it's got some great patterns in it, and you can use either side of the plate for different effects.)
Stamps I used: Oak Leaf 1, Oak Leaf 2, Blessed (all from Impression Obsession)
