Welcome the reader to the Hero Arts Launch Party Blog Hop!
Today I have a Christmas themed card to share using the awesome "ink smooshing" technique. I used the Hero Arts Pen & Ink Christmas Tree Stamp for the watercolor resist background and finished with a stamped and embossed greeting and confetti in gold using the Hero Arts Joy To The World Stamps.
The Hero Arts Pen & Ink Christmas Tree Stamp was stamped on watercolor cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I used the "ink smooshing" technique with Bundled Sage Distress Ink, Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, and Evergreen Bough Distress Ink to create an embossed resist background for the tree.
I trimmed the panel down to approximately 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered it to a card base using foam adhesive.
I finished the card with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins.
