Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Today, I thought I might practice the "baby wipe" technique. A very pretty card was entered into one of my challenge blogs and I liked the look. I have used the baby wipes on stencils but never as a stamp pad.
I am going to add this card to the "Floral" challenge at A Place To Start!
Love the Life you Live and Live the Life you Love
I had no plan when I started. My goal was to simply practice baby wipe stamping but the practice panel looked okay so it was only natural for me to figure out how to build it into a card.
To create my floral background, I made two faux stamp pads using baby wipes. One for the colors in my flowers and one for the colors in my leaves. I practiced stamping on scrap paper until I had the look I wanted. I toyed with the idea of coloring in the flowers but in the end, I decided that I liked it better uncolored. To add some dimension and texture, I made two small vellum flowers, colored them, and attached them with a brown brad. The ribbon was added to balance the design and I embellished the ribbon with flatback pearls, again to add texture and depth. I used my Vintage Photo re-inker and water to create splatter. Finally, I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and layered it onto the base. This is definitely a fun technique and I know I will use it often to create my backgrounds.
Thanks for Stopping By!
I hope to see your Floral Inspired project at
