Acrylic Blocks and Distress Inks

The first step to this card was stamping and heat embossing a script image in clear ink and embossing powder. This would resist any ink to be applied afterwards. I tried something new by inking an acrylic block with Distress Ink. Then I misted the inked block and stamped it on white cardstock to create a frame to work within. The next step was to ink and stamp the crackle background. Finally, the flower image was inked and stamped. The result was cut to fit the front of the card and the edges were inked to finish it.
