I am sure you have noticed how much I absolutely love the Ink Smooching Technique! It just adds so much to the card and is so easy to do. I have shared a step-by-step tutorial on ink smooching and watercolor background, you can download it now by CLICKING HERE.
The background behind the lavender image is the Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon. I cut off the metallic portion and then shredded it (a tip learned at OnStage). It was secured with a small strip of Fast Fuse Adhesive.
