MakeItMonday | Watercolour Smooshing

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Today I am joining in with the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge #204 - Watercolour Smooshing. Betsy has a video tutorial on how to achieve this effect and I just love this. Soft pastel colours and some gold and white make up my card for this week's challenge - here it is!


I have used the Life is Beautiful stamp and die set and seriously that set is *cold dead hands*. If I could only choose one stamp and dies set it would have to be this one - it is my absolute favourite!

I produced two panels of *smooshes* one with slightly more intense colour and I used this to die cut the butterfly and added another in vellum on top. Here is a close up ~


I just love this soft effect! The ink colours I used were Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet and Hibiscus Burst and I did spray a lot of water to get the effect.

I hope you like my creation and if you are joining in with the challenge please leave me a comment so that I can come and visit your blog and leave your cards some love too.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
