Smooshed Varied Vases

I am a big fan of dinky little things - and when I espied the fabulous Varied Vases photopolymer stamp set in the new Annual Catalogue, I knew I would be adding it to my stamp collection.

I decided to use a technique for this that I haven't used in a long time - smooshing ....... and it was great fun !

My little card is only 3 x 3 one (told you I like dinky).  I loaded up some Melon Mambo, So Saffron and Calypso Coral ink onto an acrylic block, then spritzed the block with my spritzer.  I then applied the block to a piece of watercolour card and the colours all blended beautifully.

Once it had dried, I stamped on my flowers and little vase and die cut the image with a square Stitched Shape die.  You will note that my little black vase is slightly blurry where the paper was ever so slightly damp.  But I kind of like it and chose to run with it.  I layered my little square image onto some Basic Black and So Saffron card stock.

It's only a little card - but I did get ever so messy. I am just not a neat and tidy crafter.  Never have been ...... never will be !

Hope you likey.  Thanks for looking and I hope to see you pop back again.

Bye for now.
