This was my first time with smooshing. I started out with blues and turquoise and ended up with yellows and oranges. lol My smooshing was done in layers, and I did use watercolor paper. I used lemon drop, sweet corn, sweet mango and tomato soup inks. If you've never smooshed before, it's very easy. Just put down some ink on an acrylic block or craft mat and spritz with water. Lay your card stock on top and move it around. I love my smooshed background! I embossed the feather in liquid platinum and then used Ranger sticky embossing powder and Martha Stewart glitter.
Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the gorgeous cards the rest of the team and our GD, Angie, have made this week. I hope you will come and play along.
If you win Chic of the Week in any of our April challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of June. Good luck!
