Sending Warm Wishes

>> Wednesday, January 20, 2016

I have loved smooshing for some time, but after learning how to do acrylic smooshing last week, I am addicted.  For this card, I sponged the card first with distress inks and then did acrylic smooshing with the same colors.  I loved the effect and thought it would make a great sky.

For my balloon I stamped the Medium Filigree Snowflake and then the Hot Air Balloon image.  I sponged on the same Distress Inks but this time my sponge had some left over green in it and my colors changed a bit.  I added the Warm Thoughts 1 line Greeting  and a bit of Stickles.

Hope you are having whatever kind of weather you are wishing for!
