Center of Attention Product Spotlight - Smooch

Today some of the Baker's Dozen are showcasing a fabulously fun product - Smooch! If you've already played with Smooch then you know what I'm talking about, and if you haven't, I'll do my best to show you how wonderful it is. First of all, just the name - Smooch - brings a smile to my face! I really really really LOVE the super fine tip applicator. It's a pointy foam applicator so there aren't any bristle to separate so you never loose the fine tip. It's applied much like you'd apply nail polish, but you can apply it in very fine lines. And there are a slew of fun colours to choose from. On my sample I've used Luscious Lime Smooch from the NEW collection and Moonlight Smooch from the original collection.
The pearlescent finish adds a wonderful shimmer to any stamped image. The colours are opaque so you can colour any part of an image on light or dark cardstock and even use them on patterned paper too. I did find that Smooch doesn't dry on a non-porous surface though.

This first detail shot shows the image before I added Smooch.
And after...I added Luscious Lime Smooch to the drippy goo and the claw feet on the cauldron, and Moonlight Smooch to the bubbles. I love how it takes a project up a notch with very little effort.
The image is from Spooky Expressions and I used the Halloween Key Ingredients along with my new MS spider web border punch. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics and of course, Smooch! The layout is this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch #35, but I kinda forgot one panel...oops!
Taylored Expressions is offering a 15% off special for the I Want It All NEW Smooch for today and tomorrow only so pop by the store and pick up some Smooch for yourself!

Let's go see what the other Baker's Dozen stampers have come up with...I can't wait to see the creativity!

Thanks for stopping by!
