Inksmooching


This was a very new technique for me inksmooshing!
After a quick google I worked out you put ink on your mat.
Spritz it with a little water.
Then use a piece of plastic to move the ink onto the card.
My first attempt ended up as a brown mess and was put in the bin.
This was my second attempt and I am quite pleased with how it turned out.
I then mounted it onto a piece of purple card and onto a card blank.
