This card is for the two challenges today. The first is the try a new Technique challenge and Judy asked us to try the Acrylic Block technique. This is also for the CAS challenge and Karen gave us the theme of Harvest.
I used three Tim Holts distress inks and instead of water used alcohol. I thought the tall grain stamp would be perfect for the harvest theme. Lastly I added the sentiment stamp.
Thanks for some fun challenges!

Well these are perfect harvest colors and I wouldn't have thought to use alcohol..it gives it a different look than water..darker, richer...Terrific sentiment for this theme...and I think any of your cards would fit the harvest theme as that is where they come from.... ;) Lovely card!

Ah Kathleen, love your colors and the wheat. Wheat is really beautiful I think. And I never would have thought to use distress inks and alcohol you clever girl!! I'll will have to try that. Lovely card.
