I used the smooshing technique to created the splotchy background (and I just love it!). I stamped the ice cream in Versamark on some watercolor paper and heat embossed them in white. Using distress inks, I carefully watercolored each image and then fussy cut around each one. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in white. To create the patterned paper behind the sentiment, I used the dot stamp from the set and carefully stamped it repeatedly to create my own paper! I think I love this one!
