Just for you card using the babywipe technique and the Watercolour Wings stamp set by Stampin' Up!

This card has been made using the baby wipe technique, I've never used this technique before and had never heard about it until I went to the On Stage Local event by Stampin' Up! in April. I was having a lovely meal at Nando's with some fellow demos and it just came up in conversation. I can't believe that I had never heard of it before!

I only have Stampin' Up Ink Refills for the colours I use the most so I picked all the colours I thought would go well together. I then took a few sheets of babywipes and placed them down on a craft mat and then dropped a little bit of each colour all over the babywipe in random patterns. I used Island Indigo, Pool Party, Soft Sky, Blushing Bride, Perfect Plum and Smoky Slate - what a great colour combination!

I used the stamp set Watercolour Wings and used the babywipe covered in spots of ink as my ink pad. I used the small dots stamp for the background - because the set is photopolymer I could see through the stamp to be able to line them up perfectly to make a grid. I then used the small butterfly stamps and stamped onto a scrap piece of whisper white. I die cut this using the Butterflies Thinlit Dies and used a Stampin' Dimensional to pop it up over the dotty background. I then stamped the sentiment Just for you to finish it off.

I love this effect as you will never get the same look twice!

I've not had a lot of time to craft in the last few weeks. I've just had a look at this weeks Global Design Project - its fab, so I am going to try and get some time in my craft room this week so I can join in with this week's sketch challenge. Until then.....
