Mono Printing With An Acrylic Block

The theme for the March challenge at the Craft Stampers Take It Make It Challenge is to make some mono prints using acrylic paint on acrylic blocks. Trish Latimer has a project in the April Craft Stamper where she has a tutorial on doing this technique.

This is a tag that I made.

I used a mixture of DecoArt and Fresco Finish acrylic paints. The background stamp is by Kaisercraft, I don't know who made the stamp on the edge.
I used the Sizzix Tattered Florals die for the flower and put a piece of corrugated card behind it so that the flower wouldn't disappear into the background. I also put some Stickles onto the petals. I added the PaperArtsy sentiment.


  1. It is a great tag and the technique sounds new to me so I am off to see if I can find it on Google.
    Love Chrissie x
