Serene Silhouettes

CAS266Happy Monday everyone!  When I saw the CAS challenge on SCS today was to use 3 shades of blue and an option of birds I sort of had this idea in mind.  I haven’t done any acrylic block stamping in a while and I thought I could do the 3 shades of blue then add this silhouette on top.  I have to say…it actually turned out pretty much what I had in mind.

It did take me two tries to get the ‘background’ the way I wanted it but what I did was this…

  • Make sure your acrylic block is completely clean
  • Ink the entire block with Soft Sky
  • Ink the bottom 2/3 of the block with Marina Mist
  • Ink the bottom of the block with Night of Navy
  • LIGHTLY MIST with water
  • Stamp on cardstock.

I have to say…I was so happy with the way this turn out.  Then I just made sure it dried good before using.

This is an extremely easy card…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Stamp greeting using StazOn Jet Black
  • Whisper White – 3 x 3 1/4
  • Stamp with acrylic block using method above
  • Stamp birds on a branch using StazOn Jet Black
  • Add using dimensionals

Yep…it took me longer to the blog post then it did to do card!

  1. I totally love this one!

  2. Love this card, it’s beautiful…did you ink the acrylic block with the stampin’ pads or with the refill inks?

  3. gorgeous card Mary ;0) Can you emboss on top of this background if you let it dry first? Just wondering lol

    • I can’t see why you couldn’t. You would just need to make sure it was completely dry before you did this. I would also use the embossing buddy…just to be sure.
