Baby wipes .

Good evening every one. Hope that it has been a great day for you . We enjoyed some sunshine in Adelaide today . Short lived though it may be as rough weather  for next few days is the forecast.
Today though it was just great to see the sun .
For todays card I tried a new technique . With White Gloss card ,baby wipes and 3 reinkers .
Proper things first . Acknowledgement to and to Jane who sent me the link .
I have stamped onto gloss  card before using crayon  resist technique but generally don't use it a lot .
I will however be trying this again in different colours and I am here to tell you that it is dead easy .

I'll try to be brief as I show you how I achieved my creation . And after you can check out the tutorial on the link I showed you earlier . Firstly I folded a baby wipe
Now on the fold of the small pad created I used 3 ink refills , namely Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow and Certainly Celery, to place ink  dots along the edge. I got 6 dots .

Swipe the pad over card one way the turn card around , reink and swipe again .
And the result is a fantastic background . My pictures don't do it justice though . In this instance I have used Handsome Hunter inked images from Gumnut Brush , Helen Williams and Father from Lucy's Stamps.
Hope you found this interesting . Maybe you would  prefer to use small piece of cardstock to practice first .
Just a tip . Ink takes a while to dry on gloss card so make sure background is dry before stamping images .

Catch you again soon , cheers Shirley-Anne.

Thanks for sharing the tutorial... I love the colour combo. The picture is great.

I have seen this tutorial somewhere but cannot remember - now that you have been so kind to show how to do it, I will give it a go.

Super card - so posh! And the checkered effect is just right for a man.
