This week is TREND WEEK at Just Us Girls. Sue is our host, and she has chosen SMOOSHING as her trend.
To SMOOSH you simply apply ink to an acrylic block or to your craft sheet, spray with water, and then "smoosh" your card stock into the color. It's probably my most favorite technique - you never get the same look twice.
Here's my card:
I stamped the image and greeting from A Life She Loved Stamp Set by Taylored Expressions, and then I masked the image with frisket (liquid masking fluid). I used Distress Inks on my craft mat, sprayed with water, and just kept smooshing and drying in between until I got the effect I wanted. Isn't it "artsy"???? Ha ha!!! Then I rubbed the masking fluid off and painted the image with my Zigs.
Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Black Onyx Card Stock
Strathmore 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper
Taylored Expressions A Life She Loved Stamp Set
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Zig Clean Color Watercolor Pens
Sequins filled with Glossy Accents
Fine Tech Gold Paint
