Hi everyone, Kerry Engel here, today I want to share with you a fun way to try out a simple mixed media look using ColorBox® Smooch ink. I ended up making this layout with my daughter, she has never used Smooch ink before and we both had fun coloring in the words and painted over the card stock.
I picked the fun black and white card stock from Simple Stories. The white words sort of yelled, “Color me!” I supplemented the stash with some paper that had patterns that lent themselves to enhancement with Smooch ink. I pulled together a stack of papers and then used the Smooch to highlight the colored stars, hearts, and splotches. Then I colored the words and grid paper.
My daughter helped with the title. She colored one letter at a time. She quickly covered the ink in ColorBox embossing power and heat set it. It made them really pop. I outlined the words in white ink and then drew little white lines on top of the large embossed letters in the title. It made them look like balloon letters.
I finished it off by painting little dots here and there. We love how it turned out…fun, shiny, artsy and youthful.
