Splitcoast Tutorial: Gel Plate Stamping

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is sponsored by Ranger - one of their authors is sharing how to do a little Gel Plate Stamping! There are a variety of small sized plates in different shapes, and they look like fun!
I didn't have Oxide sprays so I pulled out my box of Colorbox mists, which are super saturated... you  could smoosh Oxide ink pads or other dye inks onto a gel plate too. I have an 8x10 gel plate that I cut into smaller pieces, so the little section here is about ATC size, and I've got a small square, a card front size, and a long narrow one that fits the margin of my journaling Bible. I misted with 2 spray colors, then with water, and pressed it onto watercolor paper. After stamping the image, I used the same mists to cover the rest of the flower outside the printed block, then added shading with pencils and highlights with white paint and a white pencil. 
The sentiment is one of mine (C13811 One Day); the floral stamp is a sneak peek at one of the new spring slimline sets from Impression Obsession that will release April 5th - they are gorgeous! I'll come back to add the link in when the release goes live, so if you're interested please check back with me!!

Thanks for stopping by!
