Baby wipe technique with Papillon Potpourri for Freshly Made Sketches #40


I thought I'd join my friend Lesley this week for a challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. I'm doing a technique class tonight and the Baby Wipe Technique featured on this card is one of the projects. I used a few drops each of Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango reinkers on a folded wipe and used that to stamp butterflies from Papillon Potpourri. One butterfly was punched out using the Elegant Butterfly punch, and the other two were hand cut. Then I added 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter to really make them sparkle and shine.


The patterned paper is from the Floral District pack, and my "oval" is a label framelit stamped with a flourish from Everything Eleanor in Baja Breeze, and a few pearls. The stitched Daffodil Delight ribbon looks crooked in the photo, but the card is bowed. The sentiment is from the Sweet Essentials stamp set.


You have until noon Monday (PST) to enter the challenge here. Have fun!
