Watercolor Smooshing

Watercolor smooshing.

Doesn't smooshing sound fun???

It IS.


I inked up a clear container with Papertrey's Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf...

used a waterbrush to swirl the colors...

and I SMOOSHED watercolor paper on it.

 I used The Sweet Life dies to cut roses, and only stamped the details~no need to mess with that beautiful marbleized color.

The unique pattern of the paper is fantastic...I'll definitely use this technique again.

The left over paper was sooo pretty, I had to use some for the corners.

  1. Wow, Marlena! Your card is amazing the way you added cut the background and then added it to the base. Gorgeous!

  2. You have such a creative and beautiful way of using that smoosh water color!

  3. Stunning card Marlena! LOVE the colors you chose...this whole card just "pops"! Beautifully done! :0)

  4. Smooshing splendid, Marlena! You've given those marbleized colours centre stage! Gorgeous. As for smooshing...I tried. I failed. Gahhh....Perhaps I'll give it a go again, but really...How pathetic! I need to watch the PTI video again (and again and again). You've given me 'try once more' incentive.


Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to stop in! ;)
