I am delighted to share a very dramatic inky card! This Paint-a-flower Dahlia Bright Eyes image has large outlines and are perfect for ink-smooshing.
In case you are not familiar with ink-smooshing, here are the basic descriptions. Apply ink to clear non-porous surface (such as acetate) and mix the color. Then smear ink directly to images and let dry.
Ink-smooshing is definitely fast and fun. However, it is also easy to create a brown-ish muddy color if you mix in the wrong color. All you need though, is to take some planning ahead and you are gonna ink -smooshing like an expert!
I applied a mixture of Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set and Watercolor Brush Markers for ink-smooshing. The shine from the Metallic Watercolors looks so pretty! If you do not have the Metallic Watercolor, you can use Perfect Pearl Powder instead.
I kept the color simple and dramatic. To avoid overmixing the colors, I created a mask and this proves to be easy and effective. I hope today's post inspired you to do some fun ink-smooshing.HAPPY3ME on orders over $29 or $10 OFF international shipping with code SHOPPING3ME at checkout on orders over $129 from 03/08/2022 at 12:01 am EST to 03/09/2022 at 11:59 pm EST.

Quite lovely! I wish I could see the shine of the metallic watercolors in real life. But I'll give it try and see. Thanks for the inspiration.
So beautifully artsy and lovely. You've made a painting that is frame worthy.
