Backgrounds with Acrylic Blocks

Although this technique has been around for a while, but I still love doing it.  It’s a great way to add texture to a card.

I used two different colors to make the background scene.  I inked up the acrylic block, spritzed it with water and then “stamped”.  The sky is Balmy Blue.

The grass is Soft Seafoam.

The tree and the sentiment are from the retiring Sheltering Tree set (which will be retiring on June 3) and inked with Soft Suede.

I wrapped it all up with a piece of thick jute.

Happy Stampin’!
