I created a fun card and two tags today by playing with the smooshing and splattering ink techniques!
I used 7 shades of green from my Maker Forte Color Hive inks to create this background today. I also used the Maker Forte Holly Berry stamp set.
I started by doing some ink smooshing onto my glass mat. I spritz my smooshed ink with water and then run my paper through it. I dry each layer with a heat tool before adding the next layer so that they layers don’t mix together. I wanted one color to sit on top of the other.
I stamped the holly and berry images in the Eclipse Black ink and then I added color from my ink pads with a wet paint brush.
When I created my card, I added 5 strips of red cut to 1/4 x 4-1/4″ to give myself a place to anchor the focal image and the sentiment. I really like how this helped pop that holly and berry piece right off the card. It really stands out with that red behind it!
I used my white Snow Flurries reinker to add some splatter to the final card, holly and all. Some Nuvo drops finished off my card.
I made two holiday tags with the second panel I created! These are always handy to have around during the holidays.
