Ink up the entire acrylic block by tapping it on the ink pad color you want to use. Hold the block about an arm's length away and lightly spritz it one or two times. Then... stamp, hold it onto the CS for just a little while and you get a beautiful background image. It is more intense than when you use this technique with markers, because your ink is applied with a much greater intensity. By spritzing the block, you give it more interest in how it comes out on your CS. I did not use watercolor paper for this technique and it worked just fine. You could use it if you wanted to play with how it changes the image a bit. It would still be very pretty.
You'll be going home with all 5 of these cards, along with 2 OSW sheets AND lots of helpful templates. So what is OSW? It stands for One Sheet Wonder. It's really all about how can I get the most bang for the buck from 1 sheet of CS (card stock) or DSP (Designer Series Papers). I'll show you several versions and give you lots of ideas. Most of the ideas and templates will be for 12 X 12" CS or DSP, but I'll also show you several ways to use an 8 1/2 X 11" piece of CS.
