There's still time to join in at
CAS Mix Up.
I'm hosting this month and I chose....
I have classes almost every month and we use baby wipes to clean the stamps.
When the wipes get really full of ink, we noticed that the ink was transferring onto our hands
and onto our cards. Usually the color transferred where we didn't want it!
So I wondered if we could intentionally transfer the ink for backgrounds.
It works quite well!
I just take the wet wipe and scrunch it up so the inky part touches the
mixed media paper and smoosh it around.
If I need more color, I dip the wipe into an ink pad, get a bit of color
on it and add that to the mix.
It's easy and a great way to make that ink go a bit further and
create a different background.
I hope you'll check out our challenge.
There's so many ways to use baby wipes on your cards.
This is just one of them.
There are videos on the challenge site and our
fabulous Design Team and talented Guest Designer, Berry,
have some awesome cards there to inspire you.
Hope to see you in the gallery at
