Ink Smooshing Technique feat. Happy Birthday Framelit

Create a fun watercolor background using a ink smooshing technique. Wendy Cranford

Today’s card looks a little like an acid trip.

Not that I know what an acid trip looks like, I should be clear on that.  But I am guessing it would look something like the background of this card. HAHA!

Then I added the bear and thought ok, now I’ve almost made a Grateful Dead album cover.

At any rate, I love the card.  Even if it is a Grateful Dead acid trip.  Oh and did I mention I am giving this to a 9 year old.  My niece turns 9 this month and I wanted something super bright and fun for her.  I think I accomplished that.

  1. Hi, Wendy! I enjoyed your video on your Acid Trip Card. I’ve been following you for quite some time and am really inspired by you. You’re such a great teacher–your directions are very concise and clear, and I love the helpful tips you give. You’re also very creative! Congrats on showing your pretty face on your videos. You’re incredibly brace and are doing a great job. You’re too hard on yourself.
    One question…I use the foam dimensional tape on a roll also, but my source is no longer carrying it. Do you have a link to it? I didn’t see it in the directions with the other non-SU supplies.
    Thanks so much!

  2. Fantastic card! Very psychedelic 60’s vibe! Just love it! The colors are wonderful….bright and cheery! Thanks for the little tutorial!
