VIDEO | Ink Smooshing feat. TAWS

Hello there, I have the pleasure of guest designing for The Alley Way Stamps today. They sent me the All Washed Up stamp set to have a play with, and I couldn't be more delighted! It is such a cute set!

For my card, I started off with a piece of TH Watercolor cardstock. I then ink smooshed various colours of TH Distress Ink on to it, heat setting each layer as I went. The colours I used were Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire. Once these layers were dry I took a fan paintbrush and added water to this. I then flicked the paintbrush to add some water droplets to the panel.
On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the cute narwhal from the set, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. He was then coloured using Copic Markers and fussy cut out. The sentiment was stamped on to the panel with Versmark ink and heat set with WOW! Bright White embossing powder. The panel was adhered to an A2 white card base with lots of foam tape and the narwhal added on top. To finish off, I added a little clear Wink of Stella and some Glossy Accents to the narwhal.
