Smooshing – Giving it a Try

So, there is this technique called smooshing and I have not really tried it yet – so I got a piece of acetate and colored on it with three Stampin’ Up! colored markers: So Saffron (yellow), Taken with Teal, and Cameo Coral.

Then I sprayed it with some water and applied it to my Tim Holtz brand Watercolor cardstock

As you can see it went alright – Not super pleased with it but I will be trying it again!!!


I used Dark Blue cardstock to diecut the You’re Amazing from Simon Says Stamp and to layer behind my watercolor paper!!

I am linking this card up to these challenges:

“Just Us Girls” Challenge# 293 Color Week


I used Teal, Dark Blue, Yellow and Coral on my card

The Crooked StamperCSSC # 4 (sketch)


I think it fits!!!

    Hooray for Carol! I know she’ll love her happy mail. I’ve not tried the smooshing technique yet either, Taunya. I think yours looks pretty great. Whenever I have thought about trying it, I’m always afraid I’ll just end up with a gray/brown mixed up mess, so I move on to something else. I guess I need to actually TRY it sometime, rather than just think about it. LOL

    This is perfect! I love playing with drag-through-the-inks to see what comes out — they are always different! Yeah, you get some duds, but mostly they are totally usable!

    Thanks for playing my Crooked Stamper Sketch Challenge!!

    I love how your background turned out! This is awesome and I like that you added the bold sentiment and didn’t hide that background. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!

    THANK YOU x 20 bazillion for this awesome news, Taunya! I’m wow-ed, thrilled, delighted and BEYOND honoured! You are such a gem, a blessing and a treasure! Your smooshing: fabulous! I tried, failed, tried again, failed, repeat several more times and…well, gave up. Your results here have me rethinking the process! Best make sure I have a piece of acetate, because based on your inspiration, I think we know where I’ll be headed! Again, you’ve made my day…my week…my month SPARKLE!
    Hugs and love,

    Smooshing is something that can be either really great or really bad. Your card came out really pretty. I have done it a few ways, with different types of inks and Distress inks work the best for some reason. I like the colors you used for this and the layering you did. Really great design.!!
