Give It a Little Jingle

Hello.  Welcome.  Over at Mark's Finest Papers they are having a technique challenge - acrylic block stamping.  I've seen this done many times and done it myself once.  It was fun, quick and easy.  So I thought I'd have a play.  

I started by adding Barn Door distress ink to a 5cm square block and stamping a pattern.  Didn't like that so much so switched to a 10cm block and spritzed with water.  Grabbed the spritz with the W&N irridescent medium in by mistake.  Result - sparkle.  I like the variation in the pattern and also the instant border.  I discovered that most of my acrylic blocks have a bevelled and a straight side.  Stamping with the straight side gave a much more defined line.  Stamping with the bevelled side resulted in ink bleed.  Interesting.

I stamped the little santa head and a ho ho ho border from Mark's Finest Papers Holiday Tags set.  I added some glitter to his hat.  I was going to put him on a wobble dingsen but I have temporarily lost misplaced them.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Have you joined in my giveaway?  Not long til the full moon you know.  Hugz
