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

Monday 5 September 2016 Somerset, UK

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.....
