Another Acrylic Block Watercolor Background

One of my favorite things you all know by now is to do CAS cards. Well, believe me nothing is so clean and simple as using an acrylic block to capture a colorful background for a silhouette stamp. By swiping colors onto a block and spritzing with water you can make beautiful backgrounds.  Here is one I did this week.


The silhouette family image and sentiment are both from I Brake For Stamps. I layered the white, black and blue card stocks to showcase the focal image. I also carried the card stock layers over to the left bottom inside panel to tie the colors together. I used ink pad colors which I thought might look like a sky at dawn. I suppose it could also work for a sunset as well.

My arm is still bothering me somewhat but I am able to do layering much easier than using my Big Kick to crank out die cuts. And stamping does not seem to bother me either. I think in the last few weeks I overdid it with cranking out dies  and so therefore I injured it. But it is slowly getting better so I am hoping by another week I can be back to normal.

Well, here it is the weekend again. It seems time flies by with so much speed these days. Guess I am having too much fun! LOL I hope you have a great one,

God bless,
Verna
