Do You Smoosh?

 
Hello!   I have been smooshing to make this card!  No, not smooching!  I played with some distress inks and a piece of acetate to create this colorful design using watercolor paper and the smooshing technique.  For more information on smooshing, check out the January CAS Challenge at Happy Little Stampers.  I used a piece of craft foam to raise the water color panel.
Supplies used: Ivory CS, Water color paper, DI Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, Abandoned Coral (all new colors for me), Green CS Scraps, Cheery Lynn Dies(Words), Cottage Cutz Die(Leaves), Craft Foam.
Challenges:
Happy Little Stampers: They now have a challenge to case the designer. The card to case is by Kylie shown on left. I pretty much copied everything including theme, colors and layout.
Happy Little Stampers:  January CAS challenge is to use Smooshing.  This is a fun technique.
Just Us Girls Challenge: # 324 Word Week Thank You
Die Cut Divas:  The challenge is new technique/die/stamp/colors, something you're using or trying for the first time.  Using these Distress Ink colors for the first time and doing smooshing with inks and acetate for the first time. 
 
 
Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

You've really mastered smooshing Theresa and I love how your panel appears to be textured. Such a pretty CASE of Kylie's card.
Thanks for sharing with us at Happy Little Stampers and I hope you will play along again soon.
