Stamping with acrylic blocks

Yup, you read it right.  I used my 1" acrylic block as a stamp.  Try it out and it's super simple: ink it up, spritz it with some water and stamp it on paper!

I've used distress inks here as they blend well and react with water.  But I think the technique works just as well with other dye inks.

The background is pretty cool as I always like to make my own background.  I wonder how it will look if I use analogous colors, will that create an ombre effect or monochromatic background?  I gotta give it a try.

I'm linking up my card to
