Clean and Simple-Acrylic Block Stamping

A few days ago I was playing around and tried using my acrylic block to stamp a shadowy looking section on a card. I really liked the effect it gives so I decided to do it agin for this challenge too at Clean & Simple.

I used SU Mellow Moss for a card base. I stamped my inked up acrylic block with SU River Rock on to a white piece that I had punched the border with my SU Scallop Trim Border punch.

I then stamped a stamp from the Watercolor Trio set using SU Mellow Moss ink. The sentiment is from the set called Blossoms Abound which is an old SU set.

The butterflies are from an SU die cut called Beautiful Wings then I just sponged a little SU Mellow Moss on the edges.

Here is what I ended up with to post. Now JUST BELOW this one is another one I did using different colours so scroll down to see it too.



I think this one is more vibrant but I still like the softness of the one above.
 The colours I used for this one are Rich Razzelberry and Pretty in Pink. Let me know which one you like best.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you come back again soon for another visit.

  5. I love the rich razzleberry and pretty in pink card the best, can't believe the beautiful look you got from just inking up one of the blocks. I will definitely try this ;)
