I have tried the smooshing technique before, and I am never totally satisfied with my results. I was inspired by this Taylored Expressions blog post to try again.
I used Distress Ink pads, so my color tended to stay linear (pad edges).
I was encouraged enough by this to want to try it again, maybe with watercolor paint or ink pad reinkers.
