Smooshed background

Happy Labor Day weekend to all in the USA!  I had to work Friday and Sat., but I am off now until Thursday : )  I wanted to share a card I made for the latest Technique Junkie newsletter using a technique called Copic Smooshed Alcohol.

  I wanted to make a floral card in purple and yellow, and added a tad bit of of a Rose color- which decided it needed to take center stage. Well, I LOVE pink, so had to grab a new image I have from I Brake for Stamps and colored that with the pinks that coordinated with the background. The sentiment is from Create with TLC.

Challenges:
Addicted to CAS- Luxury- love the Copic to make backgrounds : )
Hiding in My Craft Room- Freestyle
Simply Create Too- Something new- Rose stamp from IBFS and technique
Sister Act- Anything Goes
CAS- Sketch- used a lge floral as focal point- fussy cut it : )
Aud Sentiments- Sentiment other than Happy B-day
Word Art Wednesdays- AG

Thanks for stopping by! Shelly

Absolutely stunning, my friend! I'm glad the pink took over for this card. I'm sure it would have been lovely in our favorite purples but this is pretty magnificent. :-D
