Life is a beautiful thing

We just got back home from a beautiful trip to the west coast. We went to see Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, Redwood National Park in California all the way down to San Francisco.  Then we went to the visitor center on Donner Pass, lunch in Reno and then home. While we were driving down the coast highway I saw so many beautiful beaches which gave me the inspiration for this card.
I used the Distress Ink pads from Tim Holtz and stamped directly onto the acrylic block. Than used a spray gun and made it really wet, almost to the dripping point. Put the block facedown onto a piece of watercolor paper and put some weight on it. I waited for about five minutes than removed the block. If there is a little excess ink, just use a paper towel and tap it.
I will be having so much more fun with this technique, because it looks stunning and it is so easy.
 Have a great weekend!
