SF&F Challenge 221

This was a challenge . Stamp background with acrylic block. Well I think if I stamp a bg it is generally with a block , so I wanted to do something original but nothing worked
First I tried ink directly on the block Trust me it was not good .
Then I used alcohol inks on the block  uh uh  I then tried to  die cut a flower on easy mount but the die wouldn't cut through It did however leave an imprint

So I trimmed around it with scissors and adhered it to the block
I am showing this stage so you can see the background before I add embellishments

The banner and lace butterfly is printed on the matt so I cut around it and slipped my bg under it  Added the embellishments and the saying from Pretty Pears MFP
Come to and challenge yourself to try this
The stamp set that is up for grabs is Happy Easter
After I did the above I had success with the failure at the beginning  I used Dylusional inks on the block turned the cardstock face down and used the brayer I like the finished work I used the MFP Coneflower stamp set
