Word Blocking Technique Picture Tutorial using CTMH Thank You

After making my Anniversary card yesterday I thought it might be good to post a quick picture tutorial on the Word Blocking Technique in case its something you haven't come across before.

Word Blocking Technique Picture Tutorial:

1. Select block that is large enough to hold several acrylix stamps.  I like a square block as its easy to rotate.

2. Place stamps (words and/or images) closely together varying the directions until the entire block is covered. Here I show a 4x4 block (I used that size because I wanted the big THANKS in the center)

3. Stamp image in the center of the card to start (you can also start in one corner).

4. Fill in the remaining areas by rotating the block 1/4 turn each time you stamp.

5. Remember to stamp off the page with partial images to completely fill the front of the card.

6.  You can either use the card as is for a very quick and simple card or you can use it as a base for further embellishment.

Materials Used:
Paper:  White Daisy, Dazzling Diecuts in Honey and Outdoor Denim (former promotion)
Other:  Liquid Glass
