Watercolour Ink Smoosh Card

Hello, crafty friends!

Happy 2019! I’m back on the blog with the first of two cards to be featured in Making Cards and Papercraft Magazine! I created two cards with the Crafty Companions stamp and die set, and here is one of them!

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.



To start off, I smooshed Shaded Lilac, Picked Raspberry, Scattered Straw and Spun Sugar Distress Inks onto a craft mat and sprayed on some water so they became fluid. I then pressed an A5 sized piece of watercolour cardstock down into the colours and dried it with a heat tool. I repeated the process about 3 or 4 times to make the colours really bright and pop off the page.



I then cut the watercolour panel down to 7.5cm x 14.8cm and stuck adhesive tape on the back along with strips of silver glitter cardstock. I then adhered the entire panel down onto a standard, landscape card base.

The glue bottle and paintbrush images were then stamped onto another piece of watercolour paper, and left white to stand out against the bright coloured background. I then cut them out with their coordinating dies and stuck foam tape to the back of them.


To add a bit of more interest to the card, I created a sewing thread 'bundle' and adhered it down by placing the die cuts and foam backers on top. 

Lastly, I stamped the 'crafty friends stick together' sentiment onto the right hand side of the card, under the panel.
