Merry Christmas

I hope everyone is having a Fabulous Christmas!  Here is last Christmas card using the Smoosh technique, it may be called something else but this is what I call it.  You never get the same result twice!  This card is a bit darker than I expected.  I used a Perfect Plum card base.....I mean Purple is my color and I have refrained from using Perfect Plum on a Christmas card until the last Day!!!

 I embossed Snow Flakes in White and Silver on a Whisper White panel.  I also embossed the sentiment in Black so it would not run during the Smooshing!!  All stamps are from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set in the Big catalog.  You can never have enough Snowflakes!!

And here is where the Smooshing magic happens.  Take a window sheet as large or larger than your card front and randomly add ink from your ink pads.  I used Pool Party, Island Indigo and Perfect Plum.  Spritz the window sheet with water and then Smoosh your card front into the spritzed inks.  Smoosh and twirl and swirl around.  Need more color REPEAT.  I needed a bit more Pool Party and less Perfect Plum, but the Pool Party does not show up very well when inking the window you get what you get! My advise, start with light colors and then add more dark if needed.  I inked the card edges with Island Indigo.

The embossed Flakes resist the ink so they stand out!! This could be called Emboss Resist with a Smoosh!  I added some Silver Metallic Thread for some extra Sparkle. 

And for all my papercrafting friends LOOK at this picture from the Christmas Eve service at my Church.  Crown Pointe Church   PAPER awesome are these!!  These were the only stage decorations and with the changing Light colors were BEAUTIFUL!! 

Creative people everywhere we turn, Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful Creative New Year!!
