Another Quick Ink-Smooshed Card

Hello friends!

This is my 2nd post today. For "Show & Share" and winners announcement, please click HERE.
Recently I have been experimenting more with ink-smooshing techniques.
Yes, Virginia.... I am telling myself that there more techniques and tricks to it!
I took out Herb Garden and tried my hands at ink-smooshing again.
 I am slowing learning on my own and find it intriguing.

I tried to use the inks that are closest to the actual herb colors. Since I enjoy using herbs, over the years , I grew many many pots of herbs and they all ended up, well, ...gone.

Playing with this iamge makes me happy. Because I can't grow healthy plants, but at least, I can keep the herbs on paper looking healthy and pretty!

One note about the parsley, I did use a color pencil to add more green.
 Because the leaves are so small, it is best to use a pencil to add more green to it.

I matched the colors of the pots with Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Rustic Hinge and Mustard Seed. All ink-smooshing were created with Distress Oxide.

I love herb gardens so I was sure to love this card. I think you smooshing is both lovely and dynamic. It creates a lot of movement behind your stamped images. Makes them come alive.
