Watercolouring with an acrylic block

Posted by on May 14, 2014 in Distress inks, Online card class, Stamping | 4 comments

I’m back with another card for the Online card class – Watercolor for Cardmakers.


Both of these cards use the technique of inking an acrylic block, spritzing with water and then stamping, as shown by Laura Bassen on Day 1. I love the unpredictablitiy of this technique.

The ‘thanks’ is die cut and is recessed into the panel, whereas the ‘hello’ is die cut and 3 layers are placed on top of the focal panel.
