ink smooshing with plastic wrap

This year, I’m focusing on putting my weekly technique videos into practice to demonstrate how you can use the techniques and riff off them in various ways! A fun technique I shared recently, was Ink Smooshing with Plastic Wrap. It creates a really unique effect that you can’t achieve by regular ink smooshing. But, like traditional smooshing, you can vary the softness of the look by adding more or less water.

I love that this technique uses something we all probably have in our homes – plastic wrap (or cling film, depending on where you’re from!)

Another technique that I added in to make this a simple mixed media project was Heat Embossing with Water. This technique, like smooshing with plastic wrap, creates a unique look that you cannot achieve in any other way! If you love the look of splatter, but you want it to be embossed, this is the way to do it!

  1. At 14:10 you say something about using your “e-color” (I couldn’t understand what you were saying, so my closed caption said this was what you said”. Can you tell me about that?) Love the idea of ink smooshing with plastic wrap! Going to have to try that – would it work with ink dies, also (touch the ink pad with the plastic wrap and then spritz it with water then put it on the paper)?

    • Hi Sarah! I was talking about using an e-cutter (like a Brother Scan-n-Cut or Silhouette) to cut out sentiment words versus just using dies. I like having the dies because they’re easy – just pull them out and cut what you want. But, if I want something a custom size, or a word I don’t have, or I want to use a specific font, using the software that comes with electronic cutting machines, I can make anything! However, for just one card, it takes extra time that I’m not sure is worth it, which is why I have dies, and an e-cutter! LOL! Hope that helps clear things up 😀

  2. Hi Nicole,

    It looks like embossing powder will stick to watercolor paper using just water.
    No sticky ink required…..RIGHT?
    Who would have thought.
    Thanks for techniques today.
    Beth
