I'm home again after enjoying a week with sweet, funny, talented friends.
I've been playing with those Baby Wipes again. There's so many things we can do with them!
This time I followed Jennifer McGuire's lead and used Distress Re-inkers
on a baby wipe to make stripes of color.
I folded a baby wipe to fit on the edge of an acrylic block and
fastened it with a rubber band. I added a few drops of Spun Sugar re-inker to
one side of the wipe, a few drops of Worn Lipstick and a few drops of
Picked Raspberry. Then I swiped it across some paper.
I found that Mixed Media paper works best, but I did some swipes on Neenah
and it worked okay. I got several pulls of color with my wipe and by
spritzing with water, I got lighter colors.
My friend Heather Telford is helping to launch a new challenge at
I've used the three shades of pink. (I hope it's okay to use three shades of one color.)
At The Flower Challenge this month they're asking for
Embossing the colored panel helped with any warping ;-)
My mixed media are Baby Wipe Swiping, Stamping, Dry Embossing and Die Cutting
