Muse #145

This is Joan Bardee's last time as the Muse and she created a delightful card to leave us with.
I was inspired by the pink background and the curved leaves with a sentiment in the middle.
I smooshed some watercolor paper with Distress Inks sprayed with Perfect Pearls.  You can't see the shine but it's there.  Let's back up.  First I stamped the leaves from SSS in Watering Can and used a Molotow masking marker to color in the leaves.  Then I smooshed.  When it was dry, I removed the mask and colored in the leaves and flowers with Distress Ink.  The sentiment from SSS is stamped in the same ink with my Misti.  I didn't want to take a chance on ruining an almost finished card.  I know you know what I mean.  ;)

I just remembered I want to send this to Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge.  It is CAS enough isn't it?  They want you to use your favorite technique and smooshing is definitely one of mine.

Thanks for dropping by.
