Acrylic Block & Alcohol Spritzing Technique


To make this card, we took Stampin' Up!'s largest acrylic block and using the corners of the Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Bermuda Bay ink pads, inked up most of the surface of the acrylic block. We then filled a spritzer with alcohol and lightly spritzed the block. Give the alcohol about 30 seconds to pull at the ink. For the stamped image (Summer Silhouettes stamp set), stamp down onto the block to pick up the alcohol/ink and then stamp on a piece of white Cardstock. For the background, place a piece of white Cardstock down onto the acrylic block and press down to make sure you get complete coverage. I don't recommend picking up the block and turning it over onto your Cardstock as the alcohol/ink solution could run and ruin the effect -- or make a new one!

TIP: When making your background, cut your piece about 3/4" longer than you want it. This way you can cut that off the bottom and use it on the inside of the card like I did.
