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!
