Ink smooshing baby card with Winnie and Walter

Hey my lovely peeps!

Would you like a sneak peek of today’s colourful baby card?

Isn’t it bright and fun? I had such a great time with this background.  I tried a new technique (to me) and am surprised it kind of (?) worked.  I downloaded a digital file from Winnie and Walter called Mini Scenery:multi-faceted elements and cut it out of acetate with my silhouette cameo so that I had a stencil.  I then ink smooshed distress inks – mustard seed, wild honey and cracked pistachio – over the stencil.  I didn’t add too much water and I think that helped it not bleed to much.  Can you see the geometric shapes? Here is the template stencil I used: 

I think I’ve talked enough, so here is the full card.

I stamped my sentiment using my mini Misti on to the watercoloured base once it was dry to ensure a crisp bold sentiment.  I just love that I hardly ever waste cards due to wonky or badly stamped sentiments anymore! I also watercoloured the cute critters (who says a bunny can’t be blue/green?), fussy cut them and assembled all the elements on a bright yellow card base.  The critters, hearts and sentiments are from the Winnie and Walter Welcome to the Family set.
