Technique Tuesday, but it’s Sunday !

I couldn’t think of anything to rhyme with Technique that was relevant to a Sunday, so I promise I haven’t gone mad !
A quick thank you to everyone who attended my Rochdale Crop yesterday.  Despite the awful weather, it was a hilarious day full of fun and inspiration, and I even managed to get some work done Surprised smile yay!
Anyway, upwards and onwards with this technique – it’s the Baby Wipe Technique.  As watercolouring is HUGE in all genres of industry at the moment, this technique will help you achieve the watercolour effect without too much effort.

Supplies Needed
  • Plate or Foam Tray
  • Baby Wipes
  • 2/3 different coloured Reinkers (£2.75 each)
  • Cardstock
  • Bold rubber/acrylic stamp
Step1: Fold your baby wipe and lay it on a paper plate or foam tray.
Step 2: Place drops of reinkers randomly onto the baby wipe to form your “stamp pad”.
Step 3: Ink up a bold stamp on your make-shift pad
Step 4: Stamp the image onto your piece of card stock.
Step 5: Once image has dried, then you can use it to make up a project.
Note: Another method is to place drops of reinkers on the fold of a baby wipe and pull down your cardstock for a multicoloured stripe effect.
You could also use this technique direct onto a layout using a large background stamp, or use as a mat.
For those who prefer visual instructions, the following You Tube video will help you.
