Simple Summer Smooshed Card

Happy Friday! Today we're heating up the summer with this fun and easy summer background idea that highlights the beautiful image from the new July 2023 Kit of the Month: Anchored by Love. This new Kit of the Month is full of beautiful summer images that work perfectly with these fun backgrounds, so let's get inky!

To start I cut down four pieces of watercolor card stock to A2-size. Using Lindy's Magical Shakers, I lightly dabbed some of the powder on one of the sheets. (Note: You don't need a lot as these are highly pigmented powder inks and they go a long way as you'll see.) From there, I sprayed water and used a watercoloring brush to spread the ink.

I then smooshed the next panel into the inked up to create another. I did this two more times and created four fully inked backgrounds. This is a great way to create unique cards very quickly.

Until next time... Happy Crafting!
