Block Collage technique

The technique for this card is called Block Collage. It's really quite simple! You get multiple stamps with a common theme first. You will also need two ink colors in the same color family, one light and one darker. You brayer the lighter ink over your cardstock sparingly. Then, stamp your focal image in the center of your cardstock. You also stamp the image on a Post-It note. Cut the image on the Post-It note out and cover the image on your cardstock. Use the other stamps you picked out all along your cardstock using your darker ink color. Then, use a stipple brush and "stipple" along the edges of the Post-It note with the darker ink color. This will sort of "highlight" your focal image. Then, remove the Post-It note and mat or embellish as desired! See? EASY! Here are the items I used to make this card.
