OK so "watercolor smooshing" is a technique where you apply ink to a clear acrylic block that usually holds a polymer stamp. No stamp this time; instead you spray the color with water and apply to your paper, "smooshing" it a bit to blend the color. I did a couple of try-sies and found that it really works best when the paper is also a bit damp. I make a lot of motivational cards and thought "Leap Of Faith" with gold embossing would be great for this one with a vellum butterfly.
A few well-placed sequins to pick up these lovely pastels, and done!
