In this short workshop, Tess Grace from the Arty Crafty Place demonstrates block printing on cards. She recommends using water based acrylic paints and printing on a single side of the card for bright sharp images. There are a number of helpful tips included in this video:
use sponge dabbers to get an even cover of paint
place two separate colours on a single block for contrast
utilise her signature palm wiggle to ensure an even print
Further videos are available on basic block printing and block printing on Easter cards
