Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

More Water Colouring

Hi Everybody,

This pretty cards has an ink smooshed background in Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry background

I have added in some left over flowers from the Messy Water Colouring that I created with the Layered Florals last week and I just had to use them up 

The die and stamp set is called Sending Wishing Hoping from WPlus9 and I bought mine from Sevenhills Crafts

Ink smooshing is a lovely technique and no two cards will ever look the same. Play around with your inks to see which colour combination you like. I used Distress Oxides because they have a chalky look to them when activated with water. 

They also layer with each other much better than ordinary Distress Ink and they are my "GoTo" choice for all kinds of techniques 

More tomorrow ...
