So sorry I'm late with this post. I should have posted yesterday but I had a vile sinus headache and couldn't face the computer screen. Anyway, now I'm here, this week's challenge at Make my Monday is to use the Baby Wipe Technique. There is a link to a You Tube tutorial on the challenge post for anyone who has never seen the technique before.
I did think I was going to have to sit this one out as I don't have any re-inkers but I thought I would try before I gave in. I found some of my most vibrant ink pads and swiped the colours onto my baby wipe. The result is a much more muted effect. I used a lovely stamp set I recently bought from a friend getting rid of some stash. It's by Clearly Besotted.
My photos aren't really very good but you can see how the technique gives a mottled effect better on the bottom card. I used the baby wipe on the background as well as the butterfly. You can see how the baby wipe altered my colours on the top card as I used the same colours to ink my inner circles. If you've never tried this before I urge you to have a go. My pictures aren't the best to show off the technique but it does give a lovely effect.
Thanks for reading.
