We will use the Ink Spray Smash technique on one of our cards. Here, I've used Kiwi Kiss, Real Red, and Cameo Coral reinkers spritzed with water on Glossy White cardstock and I was really happy with the result. This is a great two-for-one technique because you "smash" two pieces of the inked glossy cardstock together and you have a pretty element to use now and one to save for later! I've used SU!'s new Raspberry Tart DSP along with the Sweet Stems stamp set.
I like to emboss my images before coloring so here I used my Always Artichoke Craft Ink to stamp the image and embossed with Clear EP. I colored the stem and leaves with a Blender Pen and Classic Kiwi Kiss pad and the bloom with Cameo Coral and Real Red Markers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Valentine's Weekend!---Lisa
