Monoprinting with Acrylic Block - card #2 (together forever)
I'm here with the card no 2 made using the monoprinting with an acrylic block technique for the Take It Make It Challenge over at the Craft Stamper Magazine. I have explained everything about this challenge and about my cards HERE so have a read.
My second card is made with acrylic paints. The background is a bit of a happy accident as it started being light green, then had some stenciled design on it and I was about to chuck it when I went over my acrylic block with a black paint and took a print. I liked the leathery texture and I decided to work with it. I added another print of a red paint and it looked great. Dark and gorgeous. I took my silver acrylic paint and went over the edges using my finger to finish it off.
The heart was made the same way, just using other colours, mainly red and black. Then I simply used my fingers to tear the heart shapes, squashed it, glued them together on the card front, stapled over them in three places, stamped my sentiment on a separate piece of cardstock and cut it out. It needed to go with the whole look so used my Stazon and some paint to go over the edges. I wanted to keep this quite simple as it has a plenty of texture already. I love how this card turned out. It is a perfect masculine card, I love grunge!!
