Here's my card for Judy's TLC698 Gel Plate Impressionism challenge. I don't have a gel plate, used the blue embossing plate from my Wizard and otherwise followed the tutorial. I made 5 attempts, and this is the best. There is another one I will probably use up on something, but it was a more defined impression of the stamp. I did end up with 3 lovely stamped-off images of the dress form, those will definitely get used.
I trimmed this down, edged it with a gold leafing pen and added some gold spatter. Added the Prima flowers (better colour match in real life) with a snippet of lace, and a die-cut pin (added a pink pearl head) and needle with some linen thread. Finished it off with a sentiment cut from my first attempt.

What a lovely card with awesome bg colors, Sabrina! Love the vintage feel with the needle and thread, as well as the ivory lace. My leafing pens have dried up so I might need a few new ones as I love the gold around the edges.

I tried this technique today using my tan embossing mat. It worked wonderfully on the mat and now has a permanent impressionist scene. It barely transferred any ink onto the paper. I might try again tomorrow using an acrylic block.
I do like the results you achieved with the soft colors. I can see what looks like lacy texture from the dress, and I just love that. The gold edging is just perfect for the soft coloring as well as the snippet of lace and lovely flower.
