Smooshing @ JUGS!



Screen Shot 2016-03-05 at 11.57.39 AMHello Friends,  Happy Saturday!  Today, starting over at Just Us Girls, Sue has a fun technique for you to try and it’s not difficult either.  It’s called the smooshing technique and the great part about it is, you can’t mess it up. There are a few different ways to achieve this effect but the way I did it was; I took some watercolored paper, three of my SU inks, a piece of acetate, and my spritzer filled with water. If you have never tried this technique before, here is a video by Kristina Werner that will help get you started! CTS_167I saw this great sketch a few days ago over at CAS(E) this Sketch and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.  I knew I wanted to use my new stamps and dies from Verve that I just got, and finally an idea came to me.  I did stretch the sketch just a tad when I added the sentiment in the top left corner, but I really felt I needed to add it to make the card work. I sure hope I won’t be disqualified!

I had a great time with this card and I sure hope to see you in our gallery at JUGS this week giving the smooshing technique a try!  Who knows you may even be chosen as our next Chic of the Week!   Take care, Nanc’

  7. I have so many friends on teams that I need to follow and make comments on. I don’t know how I miss this one as when I saw it, it sure made me chuckle. There is to much seriousness in the world. Love the colors and the smooching background. Also how the Words go from milk chocolate to semi-sweet to dark. Lol
