Acrylic Block Stamping

For this one-layer card, I used an easy technique called acrylic block stamping.  I made a base of watercolor paper.  Then I inked up one of my clear acrylic blocks with distress inks, sprayed it with water and stamped it on my paper. Using a heat tool to partially dry the area, moving around the excess ink and re-stamping with the same acrylic block, I got this result.


Stamps:
Gina K Spring Blessings
Gina K Assorted Greetings

Ink:
Versafine Onyx black
Distress inks: Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Tea Dye
