  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Apply ink to acrylic block. Lightly spray with water. Make sure it is wet, but not dripping.

    Step 2

    Stamp block onto card. (It is easiest to start with the middle block.) Repeat three times for the word JOY. Smooth out color using a paint brush. Allow time to dry.

    Step 3

    Stamp letters onto each block. I recommend a waterproof ink so the color does not bleed.

    Step 4

    Sketch around each block with a black pen.

    Step 5

    Sketch around the entire card front with a black pen. Add small pearls to each letter.

    Step 6

    Finish card by adhering card front to base card. Learn more and see more examples on my blog:
