Twelve Tags of Christmas Day Ten

Day ten is back to me, and I had to do one with my favorite technique, acrylic block stamping.

This tag started with a Sizzix tag die cut out of watercolor paper.  Three colors of Distress Ink (mini pads) were applied directly to a Tim Holtz acrylic grid block.  I really like the mini inks for this technique, because it's easier to apply them to the block.  

The block was spritzed with water mixed with Perfect Pearls, and then I stamped it onto the watercolor paper.  The "Peace" sentiment and the doves were die cut from So Silk White paper, and applied with glue.  

You can see a tutorial on acrylic block stamping, using the Tim Holtz grid blocks on my blog here.

Materials used:
Tim Holtz watercolor paper
So Silk White paper
Distress Ink:  Peacock Feathers; Mustard Seed; Picked Raspberry
Perfect Pearls Pearl
Sizzix Super Scallop Tag Die 38-0946
