MFP's Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 221 - Acrylic Block BG

Welcome to a new challenge at MFP's Speedy Fox & Friends blog.  This week, Challenge 221, is to use an acrylic block to create your BG.  There are probably several ways to create a background with an acrylic block - but the one I selected was to put two colors on my block and spritz it with water.  I dried it with my hot gun and then stamped my image and sentiment.  Remember, there is always a prize of a stamp set to the winner.

Card Recipe:

Stamp set:  MFP's Sun and Moon
Paper:  MFP White Heavy Premium 140 lb. CS; MFP Dark Night Navy CS
Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Inks Broken China and Weathered Wood
Accessories: SB Matting Basics A&B Dies; Acrylic Block; Spritzer

Hope to see you at the challenge.  Thanks for dropping by.  Later gator!
