Swoosh Technique anyone?

By | September 28, 2017

Hope you are having a good week, last night was the monthly dinner with the “76er’s”, a group of people who graduated from North Hills High School in 1976.  Each month on our Facebook group a dinner spot is picked and those who are interested meet for dinner and conversation. We always have a great time!

Today’s card features a technique called “Swoosh” featured by Lisa Curico.  This technique is when you take your ink pad and swipe or swoosh it across the surface of the paper. For my cards I used both Glossy and Whisper White cardstock. I started by opening all the ink pads and then “swooshing” them left to right and down the card stock using light to dark colors. The colors on the glossy seem more vivid in person than the pictures show.

Colors used:

  • Daffodil Delight
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Berry Burst
  • Pear Pizzazz (only on Whisper White version)
  • Tranquil Tide (greeting)

This version used Glossy Cardstock and a Crumb Cake card base.


For this card I added Pear Pizzazz when swooshing ink and used Thick Whisper White for the card base.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you are inspired to try making cards.
