Block Printing on Cards
- Tracing Paper
- Sticky Back Fun Foam (color not important)
- Wood Block, Acrylic Block or thick cardboard for backer
- Scissors (Straight and Decorative Edged)
- Acrylic Paint (your choice of colors)
- Foam Brush
Draw image on tracing paper with pencil. Make sure your lines are fairly dark.
Turn tracing paper over and “rub” with your finger onto Sticky Back Fun Foam. This will transfer the image from the tracing paper to the foam.
Using a slightly dull pencil and medium pressure, go back over the foam and indent the drawing lines into the foam by re-sketching over drawing lines.
Cut foam to size you want, peel off sticky back and adhere to block to create a stamp.
Using Foam brush, coat Fun Foam stamp with acrylic paint.
If you want image to come out “dirty”, slightly rub paint onto the backer block and make sure to press these edges onto the paper as well as the center stamp.
Press onto paper of choice. Allow to dry.
Cut out block print and adhere to cardstock to create card.
