A new use for acrylic blocks

Did you know that your acrylic blocks can be used for more than just holding your stamps? Today I have just one  fun way to use them. But first, lets look at the card so what I say will make sense.

Lift Me Up Bundle - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here -

See the blue water wash effect running across the middle of the card? Well that is what I am going to try and explain to you. It is so very easy.

Ink up your acrylic block just by dabbing it directly onto your ink pad. Now make sure you cover your work area with a towel or plastic tablecloth. This can get messy. Grab a spritzer filled with water, and spray your ink covered acrylic block. The ink will run and make puddles on your desk. Now apply the wet inked up block directly to your paper. You should end up with a motley inky pattern. Your overall coverage and the itensity of your pattern will depend on how much ink was on your block and how much water you spritzed. Don't be afraid to play along with this technique. It is lots of fun and very very messy.

This card was one I did for January's Stamping By Mail class. All the registered participants for this class got access to a video showing you exactly how to do this.

If you love the idea of getting the stamp set, framelits plus 8 project kits with full instructions and exclusive videos, then you need to sign up for February's Stamping By Mail.

In February we will be using the gorgeous Dragonfly Dreams bundle.
