November Technique Challenge

Hello and welcome to our weekly challenge.  Last week things got a little crazy at my house with the holidays and I unfortunately didn't have time to post.  But I am back in this week and I am thrilled to show off my take on this week's Technique Challenge over at SSI:

The only real trick here is that you need to have the reinkers on hand.  I finally got into the habit of buying the reinkers as soon as the I buy new ink pads (new in colors).  And aside from this technique there are lots of other ways to use them (aqua painters, spritzers, etc).  Here is my card:

I just love the way this card turned out.  I let the fabulous color palette of the Moroccan DSP determine my colors and paired it with the In This World Stamp set.  The butterfly fit perfectly in the Layering Ovals Framelits and I was able to layer it with a scalloped oval for an extra bit of Dapper Denim.  I love the two sheets of the DSP, the one has a kaleidoscope feel to it.  I stamped the sentiment on the bottom and finished it off with some enamel shapes.  Here is a close up of the butterfly:

You can see with the Baby Wipe technique, your image gets stamped in a lot of different colors.  I used Delightful Dijon, Cajun Craze, Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim.  Here is the inside:

This is a perfect card for a special person in your life and there is lots of space for a nice personal note.  I made quite a few of these cards as a swap for a Stampin' Up! event I went to.  I was pretty proud of it because it uses a stamp set that doesn't get a lot of buzz and it was actually a pretty easy card to make as well.  

This is a great technique and can be used to create any type of card.  I can't wait to see what you create and upload over at SSI!
