Gettin’ Smooshy With Ink – Crafting Playdate #8

Ready to get messy? Or at least a bit inky? The Smooshy Technique creates beautiful backgrounds using ink, water and watercolor paper. It’s so simple!

Smooshing With Ink Technique

My Facebook Live Crafting Playdate video shows you how to get smooshy with ink three different ways. You can watch a replay of the live video below AND download the technique tutorial for your reference.

Basic Supplies Needed for the Smooshing Technique

First Step – Apply 2-3 colors of ink to a plastic surface.
Step 2 – Spray the ink with a Stampin’ Spritzer (about 10 sprays)
Lay watercolor paper on top of the watery ink and let sit a moment to soak up the ink! Thank lift up carefully and blot off any extra puddles of ink with a paper towel.

There are so many ways to modify this technique. You can change the type or amount of ink, use more of less water, or change how you apply the ink to the plastic and each variation will change up how the background looks. No two times with this technique will look the same.

Variation Ideas

  • Apply the ink on an acrylic stamping block to achieve the Smooshy Technique in a defined shape.
  • Stamp images on to the plastic surface.
  • Use a small piece of plastic and do the technique upside down for more control.
Use stamped images to create the ink patterns.
