Create an Artsy Background with Ink-Smooshing

Hello friends! 
I have a simple card share today.
 In case you are experiencing a little bit of creative slump, today's card may be helpful.

I started out with embossing the image from Paint-a-Flower Iris  in Antique Gold.
follow your dream

The "secret weapon" in this card is the new Watercolor Paper!
 This paper is so absorbent and white. It also doesn't warp at all.
follow your dream

I took out a piece of acetate and applied waterclor on it. I let it dry in between and inked up some more. With each layer, I was able to create more shades of colors and depth.
This is the so-called "ink-smooshing".
follow your dreams

Today's card truly is a child's play. Hope you get to do some! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

What a gorgeous card. The ink smooshing is a great background for the lovely gold embossing, the colors are wonderful together and were the perfect choice for the gold embossed Iris.
