Designer's Choice "Watercolor Smooshing" - Inkspirational Challenges

It is time again for our Designers Choice challenge over at 
  It has been up to fellow design teamie Kim to choose the challenge this time. 
And she has chosen the theme:

The is a technique where the outcome is totally unpredictable. I decided to try this out on kraft cardstock just for the fun of it.

For my "smooshing" I used a piece of acetate. First I applied some ink from a Tim Holtz Distress Ink mini cube on the acetate, then sprayed some water on it. Thereafter I put the acetate against my cardstock and smooshed on the ink. 

I repeated this 3 times with 3 different Distress Ink colours.  

We also have a guest designer joining us for this challenge. Pop over to Inkspirational Challenges and see who she is. Maybe you know her :)

Go visit the other INK DT girls and leave them some crafty love too...
Don't forget to have fun :)

  5. Great go with the smooshing! I particularly like the fancy die work, with the lines and dots crisscrossing and the sentiment die.
