2020 Stash Party #33 - I Love Life - Baby Wipe Pseudo Stamp Pads

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!
