Default Inked Acrylic Block Technique

This is the absolute easiest background anyone can make! All you need is an acrylic block, some dye ink and a water spritzer.

-Ink up your acrylic block with a dye-based* ink pad.
-Spritz your inked block with water. Let the water bead on the block.
-Stamp on regular paper or watercolor paper.

Options:
-Try multi colors on one acrylic block.
-Try inking only the edges.
-Try spritzing the block a second time (without reinking) to get a lighter background.
-Experiment with the amount of time you leave the inked block face down on the paper. It makes a difference!

*Distress Inks keep their color when water is added to them, whereas regular dye inks tend to break into different colors when you add water. I have seen a purple dye ink show signs of pink and blue.

I hope you will show us what you create.

Here is a variation on the theme.
Clear emboss an image onto your cardstock before you add the Inked Acrylic Block Technique described above.
