Can't stop won't stop with the rainbow Christmas cards! I used some Atelier Inks from InkOn3 to create a smooshy rainbow background for this punny card!
I would like to start an official petition to bring back ink smooshing! Haha! It's one of my favorite techniques. It's effortless and easy to blend colors for an organic looking background. I pressed some Bee Sting Atelier Ink onto my work surface. I use a glass mat, but a piece of plastic packaging would work, too! I sprayed the ink once or twice with water and then used an old stamp pocket ( again, a piece of plastic would work just fine! ) and picked up some of the ink and pressed it onto a piece of watercolor cardstock. I repeated the process with Trinity Teal Atelier Ink and Sweet Petunia Atelier Ink, The colors mixed together giving me a rainbow background!
I added a spritz of water to a drop of Shark Tooth White Atelier Re-Inker and used a paint brush to spatter some paint onto my background. I used Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink to stamp the adorable images and color them with Copic Markers. I trimmed out the images and added them to the smooshy background with foam tape.
I wanted this card to shimmer and shine, so I added a good and healthy coat of Liquid Pixie Dust to the peas and the earth. That's all! I hope you try this smooshing tutorial!
