You Brighten My Day

Hello and Welcome.
Today's post is for the current challenge
over at The Mod Squad and Hosting is my
Good Friend Judy Woodland. Judy is
asking us to use our Acrylic Blocks for our Background
and I love making them.
Details are Here

Gina K is the Sponsor so I thought it only
right to use her stamps and paper.
I have an addiction to Lindy's Magical's
so thought I would incorporate one colour on this card.
You can vaguely see I have used my acrylic block
three times inking with Tim's Distress Abandoned Coral
onto watercolour paper.
 As the outcome wasn't too pronounced
I thought I would put some Hags Wart Orange Magicals
onto my craft mat spritz it with water to activate
 and then press the acrylic block
onto it and transfer that to the first inkings.
With leftovers I smooched around the edges
and got a softer colour.
I then heat embossed my image from
Gina K's Springtime Silhouettes
(I know it's an oldie but still love that set)
with WOW Chocolate Caramel Pearl
which has a lovely chocolate colour and shimmery gold
depending how you look at it.
My sentiment is from Gina's Smile inked
with Memento Morocco.
Added some splatters from SU.
This was then cut with a stitched die
adding an inked piece of  crinkled ribbon
then finished by attaching to Gina K card stock.

Thanks for popping in

Your block printing is great, Ina. I do see gold coming through on the wildflowers and it's lovely.
