Welcome to another Thursday Video. Today we’re playing with the technique I have called Watercolor Smoosh. It’s lots of fun but you may get a bit inky. You wouldn’t be having fun if you didn’t get inky, right?
Now on the video I didn’t have finished cards to show but said I’d add them to my post, so here is the one done on the Glossy Card card with the Watercolor Smoosh one on the baking paper.
I love the effect the Island Indigo and night of Navy have had on the Glossy card. I’ve picked up those colours in the Daisy and the ribbon and sentiment. Here’s what I did for the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope.
Now watch the video to see what I did and remember this is just my way of doing it, not necessarily the right way 🙂

Here’s what I did for the inside of the card above
So what do you think? Will you give the Watercolor Smoosh technique a try? You could wear gloves or be more careful than I was to avoid the ink. However, I’m sure you’ll agree this technique is a bit of fun and no two backgrounds will ever be the same.
