  1. Your mushroom cards with the ink smooshing were amazing. I loved how you achieved the results on the mushrooms and they looked so realistic. You have inspired me to go and play with some of my supplies. Love the gold vellum. Thank you.

  2. Amy, I’ve been meaning to send you a note for some time now to tell you how much I admire your cards. Well, this one is over the top and finally prompted me to comment! Everything about this card is sensational and inspirational!

  3. I love this color combination and the amazing card you made using it! I’m not into grunge much either but it works so well here. Such an interesting way to do ink smushing. Such a perfect way to color the mushrooms. I’ve never used tags on my cards either but the tags really help ground the mushrooms (no pun intended). My mind is spinning from all I learned from this video. I can hardly wait to give these techniques a try. Thank you so so much for sharing! I’ll be watching this video again!
