Did you know you can use your acrylic blocks for stamping? This acrylic block watercolor technique makes amazing cards.
Look at this watery look on this card using the A Fish & A Wish stamp set and the Fish Builder Punch.
The directions are below, but first, we will look at more cards using this acrylic block watercolor technique.
This card using the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp is quite similar to a card I made back in 2014. Isn’t it amazing how techniques never go out of style.
Enjoy this one minute video from 8 years ago.
How about a cute Valentine card with the Scary Silhouettes Dies?
Notice how the colors used change in each of these cards.
This colorful background works well with a large sentiment stamp, such as this one from the Good Feelings stamp set.
All of the cards above were made with Stampin’ Up! markers, but you can also use Ink Pads like on this card.
The sea and the sand blend together on this card using the Sunkissed stamp set.
This is all you need to make these cards!
An acrylic block, markers, ink pads, and a mister. For paper, Shimmery White or Watercolor Paper work the best.
Scribble on the block with your markers. (Or use your ink pads)
Use any mister to spray water on the block. Different amounts of water will give you different looks so just experiment.
(One of the things I love about this technique is that you can’t get the exact look again. Each card will be unique.)
Stamp the block directly on your paper, holding it down and giving it time to let the ink spread.
As soon as its dry, you are ready to complete your card.
*Using a Stamparatus helps with stamping the images on these cards since you can easily do repeat stamping to get full, rich coverage.
To watch us make these cards, here is the video. The sound quality at the beginning is awful so go to 7:30 to see these cards being made.
