Color Blocking

Good morning! Today I want to share with you a really simple technique that creates some really cool backgrounds for your cards, it's called Color Blocking or Ink Blocking! It's where you take your acrylic blocks and ink the directly, spritz with water and apply the dampened ink directly to your cardstock! You can get so many variations of color and designs from this technique depending on the size and shape of the acrylic block, the amount of water used and of course the many ink colors to choose from.
Here is my example:
 
I used the new In-colors, Peek-a-boo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo and the stamp sets used are GreateSt Greetings and Wild about Flowers. So, the next time you pick up your acrylic blocks, give this technique a try. You will be amazed at the wonderful designs you will come up with!
Happy Stamping,
Katrina
