Stamped Acrylic Block Background
by Beate Johns
Create a fun and easy background using your acrylic block, in a technique we learned from our friends at Hero Arts®.
- Acrylic stamp block
- Neutral cardstock
- Stamps (JustRite® Sparky the Snowman used here)
- Dye ink (Ranger® Distress Inks used here)
- Water misting bottle
Ink an acrylic block with a light colored dye ink by pressing the ink pad directly onto the block.
Step 2 (Optional)
Ink the edges with a slightly darker color ink.
Mist the block lightly with water.
The more water you add, the softer, and less vibrant the colors will be.
Press the inked acrylic block ink firmly onto the cardstock.
The finished stamped background.
Step 5 (Optional)
Stamp small images on the background with the lightest color.
Finish the card.
