Love You More | Clean & Simple with Smootching

Hi! I’m back with the last card in the series of my Alphabet Die cards. I wanted to make one with one of my favourite techniques, smootching. It’s super simple, you make a small puddle of ink and water and then you kiss a water colour card stock piece to the puddle. You get different result depending on the amount of water vs ink and also the amount of liquid in total. I usually do four to five layers making sure to dry the card stock in between.

For the layout I paired mine with the My Favorite Things Sketch Challange. Turning the sketch on it’s end and replacing the oval with my little smootch. For the smooch itself I used Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick in both Distress Inks and Distress Oxide inks. Makeing sure to use the dye ink on the bottom layers and the oxide inks on the sop layers. I cut out the panel with the Blueprints 27 dies and then cut out the letters in love with the Impact Alphabet Dies.

The panel and the inside of the O was glued directly on my card base, while the letters was put on with foam tape to give them that slight dimension. To finish the sentiment off I use the the Love You More stamp from Bitty Hugs and Kisses which I stamped in Cotton Candy Ink. I used my Mini Misti to stamp with so I could double stamp, as I knew it could be hard to get a good impression due to the texture in the water colour card stock. I then used the thinner flag die from the Blueprints 27 to cut it out.
