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’
