more ink smooshing

As promised yesterday, I'm back with another heat embossed and ink smooshed card for you.

Used STAMPlorations Happy Sunflower and Laura B.'s ink smooshing technique to create this.


I used Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey Distress Inks. Splattered the leftover, watered down ink onto the panel with a paint brush too. Added a bit of Vintage Photo to the center of the flower. The stacked and lightly inked die cut sentiment (a la Laura B.) is Sending from SSS. The secondary sentiment is The Big, the Bold and Comfort from Winnie and Walter, heat embossed white onto a brown CS scrap. The strip of washi added a bit more yellow in a classic pattern to this card which is on a tough mission - to cheer someone struggling with a nasty prognosis.

You still have until October 5th to hook up at the Inspiration CASE Playground if you'd like to CASE my card or any of the inspiration project posts by my teamies from the month of September. Check it out here.

Cuz it's STAMPtember and I used a couple stamps on this card, I'm hooking up at Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday for September.

And since there's no designer paper on it, I'm joining the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge too!
