Trying Out The Block Watercolor Stamping Technique

Anyone who is a big fan of Jennifer McGuire would've seen or even already tried out this block stamping technique that she shared a tutorial for earlier this month....it is the simplest way to create a background and great for teaching kids as well...I did not do any heat embossing on my cards as I wanted to use die cuts on them....

For these cards,I made the background first and then decided later which colour to use for the card base...I started by cutting watercolour cardstock to size and then used various distress inks  to dab on the acrylic block...here I have used the following shades - peacock feather,mustard seed,picked raspberry and aged mahogany...I then spritzed some water on the block and stamped that onto the watercolour cardstock...making sure it doesn't move,I added something heavy on top and left it for about 5 mins...

Once the top layer was completely dry,I die cut the word hello from it and adhered rest of the top layer to a pink card base..I die cut the word hello again from pink craft foam and layered that under the die cut word before adhering it back to the card...

I die cut two trees and coloured them using Distress Inks before adhering them the the card front...and finally I have used a few sequins to embellish this card..

For my second card I chose a long narrow stamping block and die cut the watercolor cardstock using large cross stitched rectangle die...I then dabbed distress inks onto this block...I have used seedless preserves,blueprint sketch,broken china salty ocean and tumbled glass here..spritzed it with water and stamped on the paper...how easy is that..??

Once dry,I adhered the top layer to a light blue card base and added a die cut word 'congratulations' on it..I used a gold foil cardstock for this...

I stamped a butterfly on vellum paper using wilted violet Distress Oxide ink and once dry,I cut it out and adhered it to the card front...

To embellish this card I have used some tiny gold star sequins..
