IRISH BLESSING: Watercolor Smooch

Happy Monday! This is Chris Dickinson from Wisconsin coming to you with a card made using the Watercolor Smooch technique!

I have to say, when I first saw the bottles of Smooch...I thought to myself, "ahhh, there is something I will not use!" The bottles look like nail polish and I was thinking I might as well buy the nail polish. Then, last week, I went to a local scrapbook store and saw it, and needed some Retail Therapy and there wasn't much there that I "needed," so decided to buy some Smooch.

I immediately came home, pulled up the Technique Junkies Newsletter and started painting with the Smooch and had so much fun! I finished the project only to find out I had not followed directions. Needless to say that project did not turn I started over with this piece.

The Smooch was fun to work with and has a very fine tip so you can get into tiny areas. It dried fast on the paper, as long as I didn't put too much on. Best of all, the Watercolor Smooch Technique gave me some thing else to do with it besides just paint! I loved the shimmer it gave too.

Cardstock: Co'ordinations, Black, White, Watercolor paper
