Today, I going to share a simple Card Making Technique called Ink Smooshing and the A Little Wild Stamp set. I love cute animal stamps, but the A Little Wild stamp set does double duty because it shares the backside too. You can cut them out together to make adorable tags or cut them apart and use them separately.
For this technique I smooshed Melon Mambo and Night of Navy Ink onto my Teflon Craft mat and spritzed with water. Then, I laid my glossy card stock face down on the ink and smooshed. Then I spritzed again and I dried with a heat tool to move the ink around a bit. Here are 2 very different looks with the same Technique.
For this first card, I completely covered my glossy card stock. I dried the first layer, then went back and added a bit more Melon Mambo Ink.
For the second Smooshed Ink Technique card, I went light on the ink for a completely different look. Which look do you like best?
Here's a close up of the smooshing technique. You will multiple Ink pads, a water spritzer and glossy paper. For this card I used the gorgeous Springtime Foil paper which is free during Sale-a-bration (now through March 31, 30218) with a $50 purchase.
For this week's Splitcoast Stampers Color challenge, Barb chose Melon Mambo, Night o Navy and Tangerine Tango. It really is a sharp color combo. And for dessert add a little bling. Is used the Melon Mambo and Night of Navy for my Ink Smooshing Technique and I colored the Lion's mane Tangerine Tango. For Bling, I used the Springtime Foil Paper and my Wink of Stella Pen for my lion's mane.
