Laura Bassen's "smooshing" technique. While I would love to show you how it is done, I did actually learn from an online card class. The class shares so many wonderful techniques, by amazing artists like Laura, and is well worth doing. You can sign up HERE.
I have used only Stampin' Up! products to create this card. I was delighted to see that the SU classic ink range acts very similarly to the distress ink range that others use. I also used Shimmery White card instead of watercolour paper.
