Sending Happy Thoughts Your Way

This week's MUSE challenge is a photo of a card created by the talented Anita Bowden. Anita used blended inking to create her card, but otherwise, I more or less copied her creation using a "smooshing" technique instead. This is the first time I have tried "smooshing" and I like the look! It was easy to do as well.


I masked a horizontal line on my card and then smooshed my card into a mixture of pink and orange ink which I had diluted on my craft mat. I then stamped my images (using retired stamps from My Craft Spot) before diluting some blue ink and adding a few splatters. After removing the mask, I stamped my sentiment (retired from My Craft Spot) and then cut the mat using Simon Says Stamp's stitched rectangle dies. I then mounted the mat on my card base using 3D foam.

I love smooshing and yours turned out great, Kate. I thought I had a lot of MCS stamps but not the ones you used today. I love that sentiment.
