Acrylic Block Watercolor Technique


  • stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Flowering Flourishes, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • cardstock: Whisper White. Black, White, Watercolor paper not SU
  • ink: More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Basic Black, Craft White
  • accessories: acrylic block, water mister, mini brads, Word Window Punch, Aqua Painter, Sponge Dauber.
Using acrylic block F 4 7/8" x 6", I added reinker droplets starting with More Mustard in the center, Pumpkin Pie in a ring around the More Mustard, then Cajun Craze in a ring around the Pumpkin Pie. (about 5 - 8 droplets of reinker per color). Misted the block with water, and with the block face up with misted reinkers on it, I placed watercolor paper on top block and pressed. Then used aqua painter and Cajun Craze reinker drops to blend the outer edges of the color that didn't quite get coverage; sponged Early Espresso around edges. 

Stamped Lovely as a Tree and Flowering Flourishes in Basic Black. Stamped JUST FOR YOU from Teeny Tiny Wishes on black using craft white ink. Punched Word Window Punch; added mini brads.
