Coloring Techniques, Part 9

Are your ready for some more fun coloring techniques?  Today, let's focus on an acrylic block technique that will create a unique background.  This is one of the easiest techniques ever and always produces a fun result.  The great thing about it is that you could make a hundred cards and each one would be a little different.  Let's take a look at my page.
Here's how you do it:
1.  Choose an acrylic block the size you'd like for your background.
2.  Color on it with 1, 2 or 3 colors of Stampin' Write Markers.  Use SIDES of markers.
3.  Spritz it gently with water.
4.  Stamp.
5.  Carefully lift block and see your beautiful and unique background!
6.  Experiment with different colors, different stamps and different amounts of water to see what you like.
7.  Choose a stamp to stamp over it, once it dries.  Using a darker ink helps the image to show up better.

Here's the card I made using this technique:
