Block Stamping

Hello everyone! Today's post is a card I did for a Workshop yesterday. I got the idea from Kelly H over at SCS--Thanks Kelly! It sure got a good response from the gals. It is called block stamping because I used one of the acrylic blocks like a stamp! Cool huh?! After inking up the block I first stamped off before stamping on the main piece so the color was more sub-dude.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Paper: Sahara Sand, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, & White
Ink: Sahara Sand, Marina Mist, Night of Navy
Tools: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Acrylic Block B, Scallop Trim Border Punch
