Baby Wipe Magic for CAS Mix Up

Hello friends.

There's still time to join in at
CAS Mix Up!

I'm hosting the challenge this month and this is what I chose....

There are a lot of ways to use baby wipes on cards.
We keep discovering new ones.
I used this technique from Kia's video tutorial.

I LOVE this technique.  It's like magic when you wipe it down.

I did learn that some photo paper doesn't work well,
but this HP worked like a dream!

I smooshed Distress Oxide on my craft sheet, spritzed with water and
dipped the glossy photo paper into the ink.

I used several colors, drying between each color, until I was 
happy with the coverage.

When the paper was colored and dry, I stamped the image, 
using the MISTI so I could stamp more than once if needed.

I let that dry REAL good and wiped it down with a baby wipe
and watched the magic happen.

I've used a die to emboss the edge and put the design image on foam.

My mixed media are Baby Wipe Technique, Stamping and  Dry Embossing with a Die.

I hope you'll try this or another of the baby wipe techniques.
There are video tutorials at CAS Mix Up.

I'm also linking up to the

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

I love the vibrant gorgeous colours and the flower stamp AND you have just layered it and not framed it, it can certainly stand on its own merits.

I keep saying I am going to buy inks then can't decide which to buy, when I see so many gorgeous cards by you and others.

Those purple tulips look wonderful against your gorgouse baby wipe background, Bonnie! I LOVE the colors you used and the way they were smooshed. It looks dreamy. The frame impression is subtle and gives a finished look.
Thanks so much for hosting this fun "magic" challenge this month. I sure enjoyed it!
