Pattern Distress Ink Smooshing

Good morning! I'm pretty giddy about the cards I'm going to share today, and I'm super excited to have finally put together a video for you sharing this technique! I used this technique some time ago on THESE cards, but at that time didn't have any of the mini distress ink pads. I have collected QUITE a few since then, and it is SOOO much easier to do with that size. You can definitely do it with the bigger ones too though - so don't skip doing it if you don't have the mini ones!

Here is the video where I demonstrate a couple of these - I'm calling it Patterned Distress Ink Smooshing - pretty great, since it adds the element of a design to your ink smooshing - and seriously SOOOO easy!

Here is a closer look at each of them - I made a total of 5 in all with a combination of small chevrons, larger chevrons, a waves, squiggles, and straight diagonal lines. 

I could make these all day! As simple as picking what color combo you want to use!

Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
