I couldn't wait to share this card with you. Last night, I finished making my 8 out of 16 samples for Saturday's holiday kick-off event and I was bone tired. But I thought I needed to make just one more card so I had something new for today's blog. Normally, when I'm that tired, I do something tried and true and hope for the best. Not last night. All day long, for some reason, I'd been thinking about baby wipes. There are no babies in the house, so I don't know what I was thinking. Well, as I started to gather supplies, I realized that was the new technique I was going to try - at 11 pm!
Now I know the baby wipe technique has been around for quite some time. But it was new to me. I'd never done it before. It took a few minutes to get the right ink ratio, but when I did...WOW!!! Just look at how those colors blend! I used Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, and Peekaboo Peach for the leaves. The background uses our large Burlap background stamp, in Sahara Sand. The leaves and the sentiment are from the Colorful Seasons stamp set - one of my favorites this year!
After it dried, I tried adding bows or rhinestones, but then decided it was good enough to stand on it's own. I'm truly pleased with the whole thing.
2. Fold a baby wipe into fourths and place on your largest acrylic block. (Block F) Add 3-4 drops each of Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, and Peeakboo Peach from your reinkers. They should be fairly close together, but don't overlap colors. Place the large leaf stamp on your block and "SMOOSH" it into the ink on the baby wipe. You may need to just smoosh it around a bit to blend the colors. You don't want it muddy, so don't spread it, just dab it around a bit. Then, stamp your images onto Layer 2.
3. Add sentiment in Early Espresso and adhere layers to card.
