Happy Smooshing!

Hi everyone. Another busy week but finally the last school run before the holidays. I was supposed to have a whole day off today but instead I'm teaching in Gloucestershire so will be out all day.

Yesterday I had a happy delivery- my parcel containing the latest Julie Loves Kit from Craftwork Cards. I loved it as soon as Julie showed the DT a sneak peek and ordered the main kit and stamps. I couldn't wait to get started so made this card straight away!

I started off by 'smooshing' some Distress Inks onto watercolour card. The colours I used are my absolute favourites: Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves. I then stamped these fabulous words using Staz-on black ink. To finish I randomly added a sequin in each colour (I literally threw them on!) and added my panel to a tent fold card blank.

This is a very different card for me but I'm really happy with it. The process was so much fun too!

Hope you have a lovely weekend, whatever you have planned. Cathy x
