Acrylic Block Technique Meets Colorful Seasons

Before I share another card we'll be making this Saturday, I want to say how much I loved our Scraps and Prayers class.  We met last night and I just love this group of ladies.  We had so much fun creating our notepad project.  They all turned out just great and who could wrap up our evening in a more fun way than Marsha bringing brownies and strawberry ice cream to celebrate my birthday?!!!  It was so much fun.  Thanks, Marsha!

Now, on to today's card I have to share.  I've used the acrylic block technique a lot over the past several years and thought it would look really pretty as a Berry Burst background behind my branch with blossoms.  I love how this one turned out ... and ... yes, we'll be making this one at my Saturday Stampers class ... July 15 / 1:00-4:00.  I still have openings, if you'd like to join us.  Most who have signed up want kits, so there's still space at my table:)
Instead of using markers to color my acrylic block, I tapped it directly onto my Berry Burst ink pad, so I would get a really intense color for my background.  Then, I spritzed my block and stamped on the background for my card.
I cut an extra flower to use on the inside of my card, as well as one for my envelope.
I especially love how the background stamped lighter in the middle.  This was achieved by not pressing down on the middle of my block as much.  Still ..... each one is a total surprise.  They never quite come out the same.
I know it doesn't show up photo, but I spritzed my flowers with a shimmer mist before I attached them to my card, to add some gorgeous sparkle.  You could also use Wink of Stella.  After the spritz dried, I added a few little touches to the center of the flowers with my Berry Burst marker.
I added a layer of black under the top layer of my card, to make the images pop and to tie it in to my branch.  On the inside, I added a layer of Berry Burst behind the Whisper White layer.  There's color everywhere:)
