Ink Smooshing

Hi there everyone! I'm so happy you've stopped by today, as I have a lovely card to share with you. Inspired by the current challenge at My-Scrap.Ru blog I've decided to give it a try to a new (at least for me) yet amazing technique - ink smooshing.

First I smooshed the center of the panel with blue Salty Ocean distress ink, then added Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry on its right and left side respectively. I love the result, it literally takes your breath away. To finish my card I added a violet panel to the background and added some gold sequins. And now let's get right to it:

Although being a little bit messy, ink smooshing is a fun technique to try and I hope there will be more opportunities to use it in my cards.
