Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming….

While perusing pinterest the other day, I stumbled across an interesting pin.  Actually, another boxer had pinned it first and I re-pinned, but that’s how pinterest goes.  🙂  Anyway, the pin involved using markers on an acrylic block, spritzing it with water and then stamping the drippy ink on paper.  I just happened to be carving a stamp for a card that I thought this technique would work for.

Now, I am not one for following instructions.  I did start with an acrylic block, but I used my super awesome watercolors and slopped some on the acrylic.  Then, I smacked that puppy on to some watercolor paper.  It looked something like this:

When I lifted it up it looked pretty cool.  I did do a little of extra blending and adjusting with a wet paintbrush though. After it dried, I embossed my stamp over the watercolor background and it came out like this:IMG_4976

My stamp and block were much larger than I needed so I cut those babies in half and added a “frame” between the layers.  The end result was:

The End
