Baby Wipe Ink Pad
The Baby Wipe Ink Pad technique is yet another simple one :o) You create your 'ink pad' using a folded up Baby Wipe and add drops of ink from your re-inker bottles. You should make sure that your different colours are right next to each other on the 'ink pad', but you don't want them to overlap too much or you may get some muddy colours resulting.
This card uses the French Foliage stamp set from the current Mini Catalogue (page 15). I've said before how much I love this set and how versatile it is. Hopefully it's one that will be carried forward to our new catalogue in October ..... but if it's on your Wish List don't wait until then to get it as there is no guarantee it will stay :o)
The colours I have used this time are Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Concord Crush - three of our current In-Colour collection.
The background has been embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The sentiment layers were created using the Scallop Oval and Decorative Label punch.
