I've been wanting to try this acrylic block "background" technique for some time.
My original intention was to make a card for a sketch challenge, but the sketch wasn't coming together for me... you know how it goes... but I loved the pieces I created, so here it is, a card without a purpose (yet).
I covered my acrylic block with ink (retired SU! cameo coral ink is what I used here) and tipped the edges of the block in soft suede ink. I then stamped the inked block on my white cardstock. The variations you get with the color and texture doing this is lovely.
I used Melon Mambo & Soft Suede markers to ink up the flower stamp from the "Love and Sympathy" stamp set for my featured image on the acrylic block background. I love the watercolor effect of this stamp along with the background, it's so soft & delicate...
For a little added interest, I stamped 2 images from the "Four Frames" stamp set in soft suede ink then punched those out with the Decorative Label punch. Then I tucked the stamped punched images behind my main layer.
This was a fun & quick card to put together.
