Ink smoosh crafting

Today I played with my favourite technique – ink smooshing and I made four cards.

First one is for:

I ink smooshed the Kaleidacolor ‘Desert heat’ ink pad on a scallop edge panel and added a sentiment from The Ton ‘ Easy Expressions: Birthday’.

Isn’t this lovely and sunny?

My second card is for:

I flipped the sketch on it’s side and moved the sentiment to the top. I ink smooshed my Kaleidacolor ‘Vineyard’ ink pad on a scallop edge panel and then stamped the field of poppies from the Stampin Up ‘Painted Poppy’ stamp set and added a sentiment from The Ton ‘Simply Birthdays’ digital set.

I love how these colours look like the grass and a purple setting sky.

My third card is for CASology #369 – Wind.

I ink smooshed my Kaleidacolor ‘Denim’ ink pad on a watercolour panel and then added my die cut windsurfer. and another sentiment from the Ton digital birthday sentiment set.

You certainly need wind to ride a windsurfer – right?!

My last card is for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #161 – I is for Ink.

For this card, I ink smooshed a few Catherine Pooler Design inks in ‘It’s a Girl’, ‘Be Mine’ and “Rose Petal’ on a watercolour panel. I think stamped the unicorn from CAS-ual Fridays ‘ Be a unicorn’ and the sentiment from The Ink Road ‘Zero fucks’.

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    1. Tx for stopping by and commenting Mary – I’m not a SN member anymore, found myself too busy with being on 4 design teams and working full time. Hope you’ve been well.


  2. Awesome smooshing Tristan. I haven’t done this for some time… I love all your backgrounds and what fabulous cards that resulted.
