Hi there,and happy World Card Making Day! I hope you are enjoying WCMD here on the Winnie & Walter blog so far, and we do have lots more in store for you with lots of prizes too…. so what’s not to enjoy?!?! So on to my challenge……. ‘Smooshing'. So it can be any kind of smooshing, watercolour, ink, marker..... and as little or as much as you like as long as I see a little smooshing happening I will be one happy girl! So onto my card....

 
I started by adding inks in autumn shades to a craft sheet. I then spritzed water onto the inks to help them move. I then took a sheet of watercolour cardstock and placed this on top of the spritzed ink. I moved it around a little to get more ink on the card but not too much as I didn't want the colours to blend into each outer too much. I left this to dry.

 

Once dry I heat embossed lots of different leaves onto this sheet using Renee's Leaves, and fussy cut them out. Before sticking these onto a white card blank I added a few splatters of ink to the background. Then I arranged the leaves onto the splattered blank and stuck them down. For the sentiment I cut one of the words from The Big, The Bold and Blessings out of some gold foil card and added this on top of the leaves.

 

We'd love to see your take on smooshing!

Prize: One randomly chosen project that is linked up will win $50.00 gift credit to the w&w shop.
