And... Still More Block Backgrounds

Ok... so you are probably sick of these acrylic block background cards but I am having some fun with them. For this one I used the edges of the ink pad to make the lines on the block before I stamped it. I thought it gave it a little bit of a different look.
I used the Just Believe stamp set for this with the large block and Crumb Cake ink. I used the Modern Label Punch and the Word Window Punch for the sentiment with Elegant Eggplant and Very Vanilla card stock.
Here is a close up of the grass. I stamped it twice and cut it out and popped it up.

Hi, Love your blog and your cards. I loved the look of this tutorial. I have tried it a few times now with differant ink colours, I tried SU dye inks and the Tim holtz inks but I don't get the coverage you do. It is very hit and miss. any tips or ideas on how to fix my problem. As I would love to teach this next year.
Thanks
Tina
