I stamped the adorable Newton image using Black Versafine Ink and colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils. I then die cut the image using the coordinating die.

To create the rainy looking background being the image, I used a new to me technique called "smooshing"!

Distress Ink Smooshing Background

For this technique all you have to do is take a piece of acetate, "smoosh" a Distress Ink pad onto the acetate, spritz it with water and then rub the acetate together a little to mix the ink and water and the "smoosh" it onto your paper. Repeat the "smooshing" to get the amount of coverage you desire. I only used one color - Salty Ocean, but you can do this same technique with multiple colors. Just allow it to dry between each application to build up the layers of color.

  3. What a great card. I love using smooshing, but I use my non-stick mat instead of acetate. I will have to try the acetate to see if that gives me a different effect!
