SHOPPING OUR STASH #373 - Smooshing Technique

 Hello and happy Tuesday crafty peeps!
The new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH is a
fun one - use the smooshing technique!
Here's what I came up with:

here's the inside:

I started with this smooshed panel, which was the mop up panel from this card. 
(I couldn't just waste all these lovely ink colors, now could I?)
  I decided to die cut the solid ornament layers from this, then the outline
layers from silver foil paper.

I added some splatters with one of the same inks used on the panel,
stamped the sentiment, added some silver floss and it all came
together pretty quickly.

I hope you find some time this week to join the smooshing fun at
Shopping Our Stash! We can't wait to see what you create in our gallery!
Need more ideas? Simply check out what my teammates smooshed up
for your viewing pleasure, and leave a comment while visiting their blogs.
