Gesso and Impasto and Spellbinders

Spellbinders Impressabilities-Flowers with a thick coat of Gesso over the top.
Take the metal template off carefully and wash it immediately. Allow the Gesso and cardstock to dry before painting, inking etc.
Same as above but with Impasto.
This is slightly thicker than the Gesso but still much the same effect.
I cut the shape out with a curved, freehand line. I also inked with a cloth the area in different parts with different Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I rubbed Chrystallina Kindy Glitz over the top and allowed to dry. I can now do anything I like with this.
I have not been happy with these Spellbinders Impressabilities and thought that I needed to do something with them to justify spending money on them. I decided to use them like I do stencils and I am more than happy now. Don't worry about being messy, it adds to the finished result.
