Simple deep breath

I love smooshing anytime and often just have a session for the pleasure of it, like today.  I got very inky but had a happy, productive morning.
The smooshed piece dictates what it ends up as, and I really liked this for the cool and leafy look.  This is the one-layer version.  It has a bit of shimmer but I had difficulty showing it in a photograph.
