Each comment on the 12 hops throughout the year will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Blitsy.com or Stampin' Up gift certificate (Winner's Choice).
Now one with the projects:
Wow, this months technique was really a challenge. Looking through my ink pad I noticed I only had two re-ink's that would work with this technique. Oh well, they have to do it.
So, how do we bring baby wipes and re-ink's together? My first try was to fold two baby wipes together. You just fold them over and over until you have a need little bundle square of about 1 1/2".
Next I grabbed my "juniper" color ink and placed four dots next to each other on the edge of the square, than simply place the ink side on the paper and pull down. Repeat until the paper is cover. This is seen here on the left!
Now I used the same square, added more ink to the first and third dot and added brown ink to the second and fourth. Similar technique here, place ink side on paper and pull down, repeat until paper is covered. Turn paper 90 degree and repeat to create the plaid design seen on the right.
Honestly, I said it was a challenge and I didn't really had an idea what I should do with these paper....yes we do trial and error too LOL
And then I had another idea!... I took two baby wipes, folded them together in a long strip about 1" wide. I rolled the strip together into a small cylinder. Next I used my chocolate brown ink and added it to nicely rounded bottom part of my cylinder. I used some "desert sand" cardstock as my base.
I randomly dabbed the ink side over my base leaving rose like images behind. Eureka... that's more what I need :-)
I added a few small leave stamped images in between and my background paper was done.
Oh and don't forget to decorate the inside of your card...
Sometimes when you try a new technique the turnout is not always what you expect. I am sure I will find a good use for the other two papers I made with this technique, but for know they will be on my "work in progress pile". I do love the rose like image I made, which was more of an excident :-) but a good one!
I hope you had fun with my challenge today. Leave a comment and make sure to hop over to the lovely Debbie and here creations.
