I used Gomphrena flowers and the leaves to run through with this card stock through the cuttlebug. I have done it with watercolor paper, and regular cs. Some came out really dirty looking, but I liked this more cleaner looking one. It still has a little bit on the plant material on it, so has some texture. :) Wonderful Challenge on Try a New Technique challenge, by K Dunbrook this week, called All Natural Impressions. I just realized the stamp set I used was perfect: Inspired By Nature. :)
Thanks for looking

What ever Gomphrena is, the impression looks like purple clover. Love it, and the colorful touches with the enamel dots! I'm wondering if purple is nature's default color, it seems to be the common denominator in the impressions. I also experienced many dirty looking results before getting a good one.

It is so interesting to see all the different results. A few of mine had lots of the plant materials left in the paper. It does add an interesting texture. I had never heard of these flowers before. thanks for adding a picture of them to the thread. Beautiful card and the sentiment is perfect!
