Ink Smooshed STAMPtember Framed Friendship

When I don’t have time to color, I rely on ink smooshing. A variety of mediums work for this quick coloring technique, such as Distress Inks, dye ink pads, re-inkers, and watercolor.

Today, I’m using Daniel Smith Watercolors in Naples Yellow, Quinacridone Coral, and Perylene Green. My preferred way to ink smoosh is to lay two pools of color down on my glass mat, spritz with water, and dab small areas of the watercolor paper into the puddles.

For best results, do one color at a time and dry completely before adding the next color.

To keep things simple, I stamped individual elements from Framed Friendship Stamp Set. Of course, you could join the frame to the flowers with simple masking. Altenew Satin Gold Sequins finished off the card.
