A Little Smooching

Believe it or not, I really do attempt to do different techniques from time to time.  
I added some distress inks on the craft mat, added water, and then smooched (at least I think that's what it's called) the colors on the die.  Added the die to some black textured card stock, a vellum sentiment, and the pearls.

Thanks for stopping by............

You do a very good job with different techniques. This is just beautiful. I don't know if that is the word or not but it worked perfectly whatever they call it. I only tried that once and it didn't turn out so great but I think I need to give it a second try after seeing this card. Wishing you a wonderful day.

ooh Lynn, this is brilliant! I never think of black being CAS, always CAS as white space but I love, love, love this! It's so striking and creative. You have always had such a good eye for colour and design so it really is not surprising. Makes me wish I had thought of it!
