Just Us Girls #338 - Trend Week


Sue chose the ink smooshing technique.  This is such a fun technique - I love the end results.

I stamped my sentiment [MFT My Favorite Sentiments- retired] and white embossed it.  Then, using a piece of acetate, I smooshed my worksheet with distress ink, spritzed ink with with water, and laid acetate on top. Taking ink'd acetate,  I spread it around on my  water color paper panel.  I stayed with my go-to colors -- they always blend nicely with water coloring.

Have you tried this technique?  It really is easy [just Google it for lots of examples], or pop on over to the Just Us Girls Blog and check out the Team's cards!  

We hope you join in this challenge~


Thanks for stopping by~
