Today at Scrapbook Boutique I am smooshing! Love this technique but wanted to push the boundaries a little further so out came my new Molotow Masking Pen and you get to watch the process as I have a video showing how this card came together.

Wowzers, the prismas have really bought that to life – loved seeing how it all came together – great job! xx
I really love how this card turned out, Therese! Your multi-colored background colors are gorgeous with your flowers, and I love your details…Stunning card!
Stunning! Thanks so much for sharing how to use the masking pen – and the smooshing and adding the detail to that lovely image with pencils! A super video Therese!
Thanks for not editing your colouring Therese. It is great to watch you bring the image to life. Super card as always. Love your work.
Great video. Looked like you were having fun with all the smooshing. The masking looks a little like a large scratchie! using your finger tips. The pencil colouring adds the right finishing touch.
A fabulous card.
Therese absolutely totally beautiful. Love love how this card has come together, looks so good. Adding the pencil to the image really gives it a punch and that masking pen. Have to get one of those, your background looks fantastic. Can you tell I like this card, talk about descriptives!!
Incredible card, Therese! Swooning…
This is completely stunning in EVERY way – just wow! The background is incredible and I loved watching the video! Thanks for sharing.
Love how you’ve done this, Therese. I might just have to have a go, but this time use some ColorBurst instead. 🙂
Meant to tell you – it is best to give your ink plenty of time to dry before adding the Molotov; and sometimes if it’s a little hard to remove, just rub lightly over it with an eraser (just a Staedler one or similar). It’s also best to remove the mask while it’s fresh (within a day or two). Longer and it becomes even more difficult . It shouldn’t peel off your paper layers while it’s fresh though. Hope this helps. Bye
Also meant to say that I loved the detail you came out with after you coloured with your colouring pencils. Beautiful detail.
OMGOSH Therese!!!! That card is amazing .. Hope here in America, I can find that masking fluid pen!!! You always blow me away .. But this stunner .. Whoa !!! You are one of my all time favorites on you tube … Thank you !!! Yours in ink Anne

This card is STUNNING and I love your coloring.
I´ve used clearembossing sometimes on my images for masking off. And when I´m done with the background I iron off the embossing powder.
Have a lovely weekend.

love the vibrant colors – I also tried the masking pen and had pilling issues even with dry ink underneath … I think it is all about finding the right paper
Gorgeous card. I love the Altenew flower stamps but I don’t have the skill to add all the lovely detail like you have, it was great seeing you do it.
I love the contrast of the gray blooms against your smooshed background. So pretty!
Also, I’ve seen people use the adhesive pick up square to remove the Molotow.
Wow, this is just an awesome card!! Love the bright colors surrounding those gorgeously colored flowers. Thanks for the video – so fun and informative to watch!
Are you kidding me? Oh my golly whoppers Therese! This is so amazing. My jaw is on the floor. The bright pops of color and soft details of the flowers in gray is a winner.
What a very beautiful card! Love the shading on the flowers! You are such an inspiring artist!
I love your gorgeous card Therese and I must give ‘smooshing’ a try! Happy new year my friend xx
Oh wow this is awesome! I love how the design of these flowers blend in that gorgeous background! I also like that you colored the bg instead of the flowers, great design!!!
Wow, what a beauty, Therese! Gorgeous colours in your smooshing … the perfect foil for that stunning flower cluster … your colouring skills are beyond awesome! Hugs, Anita 🙂
So eye-catching, those bright colours really contrast the grey 🙂
This is awesome! I’ve just been experimenting with a Molotow pen as well – I think it all depends on the type of watercolour paper you use as to how well it rubs off.
Holy moly, Therese! This card is AMAZING!!!! I would love to see you color this in a video some time!!!
after watching your video I bought the Lacy Scroll set – Tried a couple of different ink pads but having a little trouble getting a perfect image – done some in colour and some grey – I didn’t have the masking fluid so my backgrounds are plain but this stamp still looks so pretty. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE VIDEO.
When my stamps are new I tend to ‘season’ them and this helps to get an even impression. I either do this by cleaning them well, or stamping them out a few times, or sometimes I add some versamark ink before the coloured ink, you can also use your fingers to ‘rub’ them before you add ink. If none of these techniques work, then try a different ink or cardstock and see if that makes a difference. I hope this is helpful and I can’t wait to see what you create with this gorgeous set. Thanks so much for your visit and comment and I hope you have a great and crafty day! Hugs, Therese
