Smooch Inks

I am participating in a HIT swap where we use Smooch inks on the card that we create.

I started by doing a technique called stamp smoosh using Clearsnap Fluid Chalk inks, which I learned from Cathie Allan who is a wonderful teacher. This was the background for the card.

I then stamped the Hearts in Touch stamp with Olive Fluid chalks then cut it to size. I stamped and embossed the HIT floral stamp twice on the card background piece then on a separate piece. I coloured them with Smooch ink Pool and Azure, using Pumpkin for the centre. The leaves were coloured with Smooch Green Apple. I then cut out the flowers and the little bee I left separate. The body of the bee was coloured with Gold Lame` and  Sugarberry and the wings with Moonlight.

I attached the stamped image of the woman to the card then added the bees and the extra flower with double-sided foam tape. I attached the whole piece to a coordinating colour of cardstock.
