Distress Mania Part 5 – Acrylic Block Stamping

Hello! Picking up from where we left off last week, I’ve got another  Distress Mania post for you all! This time it’s all about using your acrylic blocks to create a background on your projects! So fun and pretty easy to do! I inked up my acrylic block with two shades of distress inks, spritzed with water and stamped directly onto my water color paper and voila. Look at that background. Stunning. The trees were also stamped with distress inks.   I’ve made a quick video showing you how I made the background…. Or you can watch it on my youtube channel in HD!
