Take 3 - Week of July 11 - part 3

Well, this is my last card for this week's Take 3 challenge.

I think I really did a good job of creating 3 very different cards this week.

This card uses a new technique that I have seen on many blogs but haven't actually tried until now.  It is where you use your acrylic block to create a shadow background by inking up the acrylic block.  That's right, pat the ink right on to the acrylic block, mist with water and stamp it onto the paper.

On top of this background image, I added some inked and misted images of that Hero Arts leaf stmap that I am featuring in this week's Take 3 challenge. 

I hope you have enjoyed this week's Take 3.  I love this particular stamp set so you might see one of the other images in it featured in a future Take 3 week challenge.

Thanks again for dropping by for a visit.  I truely appreciate all your visits and comments.

Wow, what a fantastic card, I had to make it bigger to appreciate the fine detail you have on the main image panel.
I love how you are rocking this Take 3 challenge!

I love your ideas. This one is very pretty but my fav was yesterday's. I really loved it. I like how you used the acrylic block on this one and love the leaf design.

So far my experiments with the misted acrylic block backgrounds have not been successful... yours certainly was, though! This is beautiful!

I love all three cards with this stamp set, they are beautiful-very natural and delicate.
