Hi stampers, this month we are going to be focusing on the Painted Acrylic Handle Technique.

You may be wondering what on earth the Painted Acrylic Handle Technique is (also known as the Clear Block Background Technique).  This is a quick and easy technique where you add colour to a clear block using markers, spritz the block with water and then place on top of watercolour paper.  When you remove the block you will be left with a fun background.

I have used tempting turquoise and daffodil delight markers to create the background but you can use as many different colours as you like.  I adhered the dragonflys using glue dots and finished the card off by adhering some black rhinestone jewels to the body.
