Ink smooshing watercolor card with outline flowers ~ tutorial

 Hello.  For Technique Time at Unity, I show ink smooshing watercolor for this love card background.  I also use outline flowers as an accent.

Sentiment:  Hugs & Love

Adding ink smooshing watercolor in pink and red to the background stamping creates an easy artsy look, especially for this love card.  The flower overlay is an added bonus.

Helpful tips:
Here are helpful tips for creating this card using ink smooshing and fussy cutting.  To begin, stamp and trim a background panel using watercolor paper.  Also, stamp and fussy cut outline flowers and the sentiment.  Next, add pink and red watercolor to a piece of acetate or a plastic craft mat.  Then, place the acetate over the watercolor paper background and smoosh the color onto the panel.  Repeat this process until you get the look you want.  Once dry, adhere the background panel to the card base using extra tacky tape.  Finally, add the flowers and accents, to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
