Simply smooshing!

The challenge at Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge this time is to use one of my all time favourite techniques... smooshing!

Once you have created your smooshed  card it can be used for a variety of purposes. Here I chose to die cut the card for both the focal point (the butterfly, a die from Simon Says Stamp) and the hellosentiment (from MFT).

Here is the smooshed card from which I cut the elements for this card.
I began by putting a small amount of Platinum Inka Gold paste  onto a craft mat and then added various shades of blue Aqua Tints, before spritzing with water to combine the colours. I then took several prints from this using fairly absorbent card. You can see that this particular piece has been used for more than one project.

  9. I love the combo of blue and white and adding the inka gold to your smooshed mix is a great idea. Love the die cuts and embossed texture at the base, below all that lovely white space :) xx
