Fun inky block technique with Beautiful Peacock

Sometimes we just have to get messy, inky fingers are a sure sign of a great creative day. I have been
playing with what I call the " inky block technique" No idea of the actual term for it...this is my version and I love it. It gives a great multi tonal almost the dye effect to your stamped images.

So I basically used acrylic block E and added Melon mambo and Bermuda bay direct to the block, ensuring the colours overlap. then simply use this as your ink pad. Simple

I used the beautiful peacock stamp which is a 2018 Sale-A-Bration free set. And wow what a stunning stamp, the possible;cities are endless with this set.

I couldn't resist adding a little sparkle to my peacock by adding lots of rhinestones to catch the light and reflect back the stunning colours.

I do have a step by step Youtube tutorial for you to follow. measurements and products used are below for your reference. Don't forget any of the items used can be purchased online with me by clicking the photo looks or my shop now button to our right.

So grab a brew, get comfy and enjoy the video....
