Sending Love - Watercolour Smooshing


I am having so much fun trying out different card techniques. 

I had no idea what watercolour/ink smooshing was until until I saw Kristina Werner do it in one of her videos. If you want to learn more about it, there are lots of great videos on You Tube. 
SO easy to do and the results look amazing! 

Just love this!


Here is the recipe for this card:
  • Stamps (hearts) - Stampology - Autumn Leaves (old set, maybe discontinued)
    • (YOU, Love, small hearts) - Love Stamp and Cut - Hero Arts
    • (Hugs and) - Prayers - Simon Says Stamp Coordinating Set
  • Ink - distress inks - Seedless Preserves, Picked Rasberry, Fired Brick - Tim Holtz
    • Tuxedo Black - Memento
  • Embossing Powder - Gold - Recollections
  • Stamp Positioner - my own DIY Stamping tool
  • Dies  (black craft foam) - Sending - Simon Says Stamp Wafer Die 
  • Die Cutting Machine - Big Shot - Sizzix
  • Cardstock - Neenah Solar White 80lbs

As you can see I used a variety of different stamps to create the card sentiment I wanted. Mix and match all your supplies, don't be afraid to do that. I have always done that with any of my projects, it's a great way to stretch out your supply stash and creating something totally new!

Here is what the inside looks like.


This card really didn't take long to make. I'm sure I will be making more cards using Watercolour Smooshing technique in the future! Hope this has inspired you to give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
