Wishing You Well / Using Smooch

Hope you are all having a relaxing evening . Wanted to get my post in while I had a moment. Have you tried this new pearlized accent ink called Smooch ? After hearing all the hoopla from the CHA go-ers , I was thrilled to get my hands on some to try . Woo hoo, do I love the look ! While I've seen many use just as an accent ink, I wanted to actually paint my main image with it . This is a digi image that I printed off several weeks ago , and I am so sorry I can not remember where it came from . If you know, please send me a comment so I can give credit rightfully. The only tip I have for you using this great " ink in a nail polish bottle" is to stay within the lines of your image. It's thickness will cover up any details which could " muddy " your image. I've used the white and the gold for the flowers and the leaves were simply colored with a Copic marker. The base and dp are from the Two Scoops BG pack. Lace and satin ribbons are from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I used a MS punch for the left border and pearls and a stick pin to add the final embellishing . What do you think ? Have a good night and a safe Fourth celebration. And I want to encourage you, if you have not visited Women to Women blog , please do so . There's a wonderful devotional from Diane . { hugs to all my blogging buddies !}
