KSS Ten Minute Monday - Faux Layers

I am back this week with another one layer Kitchen Sink Stamps card. The faux layers on this design were created by inking up my long acrylic block with three rows of colors, misting it with water, and then stamping it on the card front. This is such a fun and fast way to add some unique blocks of color to any card. It took no time at all, but I did let the cards dry for about 30 minutes before I added the black border lines with my Sharpie, masked the area, and stamped the Kitchen Sink images.
