Acrylic Block Fun

Last night, I had a little time so I played in the Splitcoaststampers.com technique challenge. The challenge is coloring an image with your acrylic block.  You actually place your acrylic block on top of an acrylic block with your image and color over it. Then you mist it lightly and then stamp it over your previously stamped image.

I struggled with it because I was too lazy to get my watercolor markers.  After I finished up, I swiped my acrylic block with ink, splashed on some water and then pressed it onto the paper as well.  I did that with three colors.  I covered up most of my issues.  Fun!

The image is from the To a Wild Rose SU! set and the sentiment is from IO and designed by Dina Kowal.  I love that sentiment.

I had another Dina sentiment and the SU! leaves out so I made another card by just stamping all around an ink, spray, smash bg.
I used this same sentiment on a card this weekend for the SCS Inspiration Challenge:

I sponged the mountains and added some pine needles to the side and snowtex to the top.

Hope you are all doing well.  Thanks for dropping by!



  1. They're all wonderful. LOVE the backgrounds and the way you did that. So pretty.

  3. Beautiful backgrounds Nancy. I love your fall leaves and that mountain background is stunning :)

  4. Hello lovely Nancy, your cards are always as nice as you are. All three are awesome and I honestly could not pick one. The leaves look so real, the sentiments are so positive and full of strength, the shades of pink look becoming and these cards are super.

    Lots of love,


  5. Super cards Nancy, a fabulous technique and lovely colour choices - your sentiments are brilliant.
