Smushing Ink

Hi everyone!  

I have a card to share today that I made using the "smushing" technique.  I'm taking the Background Check class at Online Card Classes.  Today one of the things they shared was "smushing" ink.  

I've actually been doing this already and love how it looks.  Basically you just put water color ink (like distress ink) onto a piece of acetate or directly onto your acrylic block, spritz with water and "smush" onto your background paper.  (I usually use watercolor paper)  I also use it on layouts too.

For this card I put the ink around the edges of my acrylic block and left a space in the center so I could stamp the sentiment.

This is such an easy and fun technique for a beautiful background!

Thanks for stopping and looking today!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

July Sketches in Thyme

Hello friends!  

Sketches in Thyme has a fun new sketch challenge from Bev Code to inspire you.  

Here is my take on the sketch.  

Yes, I'm afraid it is more baby photos.  I just can't seem to get enough of them! (smile)  I got a comment from a friend saying she was waiting to watch Jurassic World and opened up my post to see the "roaring" baby!  That totally made me laugh!

Remember there are 4 different sketch challenges offered each month at Sketches in Thyme.  You only have to upload one project to be entered to win the monthly prize.  

The winner will receive a $15 Shopping Spree with Chickydoddle!!

So pop on over to Sketches in Thyme and check out all the inspiration!  

Thanks for stopping and looking today.  Until next time...happy scrapping!
