Todays card came out of a want of using some of my distress inks that I haven’t used in awhile. I love making smootching backgrounds as they comes out differently everytime, I love trying to figure out what colours to use and watching the texture come to life just by smootching some cardstock into some ink. My favourite cardstock to use right now is the Canson Montval 300 gsm, it takes the ink in a different way and if you use small amounts of water with the ink you get this cool “dry” texture when smootching it.
Also I really wanted to use the little monster from Monster Party, so when I saw the Caught A Bug? Sentiment from Message In A Bottle stamp set I knew I just needed to trap him in a bottle, and have a bunch of his friends on the outside trying to help him out.
