Make it Monday - Smooshing!

Good morning - time for another Make it Monday creation!

This week it was all about the Watercolor Smooshing - a very easy technique (thank goodness!) and I was able to put together a quick card with the help of the Lovely Laurels kit from Papertrey Ink.

I "smooshed" my water-colour paper according to Betsy's video, using Limeade Ice, Hawaiian Shores and Winter Wisteria.

I used Limeade Ice card stock for my card base and added my smooshed paper.  Then I die cut, stamped and adhered the laurel wreath. The included sentiment was then stamped into the middle of the wreath.

The bow and the sweet little bird (also from the kit) were also die cut and stamped - along with a small bouquet from Bitty Bouquets - and popped up onto my wreath.

Since I was too late in ordering the Bitty Bouquet dies - I fussy cut the flowers - not too difficult and pretty quick!

I finished by adding a few of the cute little flower sequins included in the Laurel Wreath Kit using Bling ZOTS - a teeny tiny little glue dot just perfect for sequins - and I bought it at Butterfly Reflections Ink - it's out of stock but hopefully it will be back soon…..
