Techniques I particularly like are smooshing, stamping and heat embossing, but I LOVE smooshing. I smoosh on smooth paper, I smoosh on rough paper, I get inky and messy and it makes me feel happy and is very satisfying. I wonder if it's because you have very little control and often have a nice surprise once it's dried. And there is almost no failure! They can be vibrant and energetic, or calm like this one.
Here I smooshed some distress inks on watercolour paper (allowed them to meet and mingle), stamped a leaf and heat embossed it in gold. The sentiment is stamped with Hero Arts ombre ink.
