Hi everyone. Yesterday I spent the day in my studio with two crafty friends, Debbie and Frances. We used to work together and have know each other for over 30 years ... where does the time go??!!
I showed them the smooshing technique using different papers (watercolour, mixed media) and two mediums (distress ink, inka gold wax paste). We made a bunch of backgrounds and found time for each of us to make six cards, as well as having many backgrounds left over to make into cards later. So fun!
Above is one I made die-cutting an inka gold smooshed background. Love the soft and shimmery colours.
Frances mention that it was a shame to throw away the leftover background with the leaves cut out from it, so I showed her and Debbie how to create an inlaid die-cut card ... a "twofer" as Darnell would say! :)
I hope you have a fun and inky day!! Thanks for dropping by for a visit!! I always love hearing from you. :)
