Hello there, I am really loving ink smooshing at the moment. Who would have thought it? Me, a clean and simple card maker, loving ink smooshing! I think I like the artsy look of it maybe. I was inspired this card from Nichol Magouirk, I loved the inky background along with a simple sentiment.

I started off with a piece of TH watercolor cardstock and then went to town ink smooshing on it using Distress Inks. I started off with Mustard Seed, followed by Dried Marigold. You couldn't see the Dried Marigold that well over the Mustard Seed so I went in with Spiced Marmalade afterwards. I then finished with some Picked Raspberry. I smooshed the colours one by one on to a plastic sheet, sprayed with a water and then flipped this over and smooshed it on to my cardstock.
The sentiment, from the Hero Arts Hello Stamp & Cut set was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, along with the little hearts, also from the set. the panel was then adhered to a black 4-bar notecard. I finished off by adding Glossy Accents on the hearts.
