PTI Make it Monday #204 ~ Watercolor Smooshing

The Challenge:


I just love how soft the watercolor smooshing technique gives you, but..... I am still not happy with mine, discard the first one....


and still not totally happy with the 2nd


I used the following products from PTI plus a lot other PTI ink pads....


I might try another one if I have time before the challenge ends
