Happy Happenings Watercolour CASE Card using an Acrylic Block as a Background stamp

Today is a Technique Thursday
I have CASED (Copy & Share Everything) from the Stampin' Up! Catalogue that launches 1st June.
The Catalogue is packed full with creative ideas, and I want to share as many of them with you all as possible.
But I have to say, That rubber Stamping and Watercolour techniques really rick my boat.
And today's technique, covers both of my passions at the same time.

Today's Demonstration, shows you how to turn an acrylic block, into a stamp, and with the assistance of a Stampin Spritzer, that then turns the 'stamp' into a watercolour background for a card or scrapbook page.
