Welcome to January’s Totally Techniques International Design Team Blog Hop! I am Lynsay Mahon, from Edmonton, Canada, and you have just arrived here from the talented Annette Elias from the Netherlands.
This month we are focusing on a technique called “Baby Wipe.” This technique creates an impromptu ink pad that creates a mottled look to the stamp.
Here’s how to accomplish this technique:
- Choose a few colours of coordinating ink refills.
- Put a few drops of ink refills of each colour on a folded baby wipe
- Choose a solid stamp to ink on the baby wipe and stamp to see the mottled colour
For this month’s technique, I really wanted to use the new Occasions stamp set, Happy Tails:
As you can see, there isn’t a solid stamp for the inside of the dog shape, so what I did, was took a stamp from another set to create the background:
Then I stamped over the background with the dog outline and used the coordinating punch to get the dog shape.
Here’s the finished project:
You can see a close up of the dog:
I love this set because it looks like a Labrador! I am a volunteer for the organization Dogs With Wings, a not-for-profit charity that trains and places assistance dogs. The dogs each cost around $40,000 to raise and train but they sell them to the client for only $1! I’m offering a full day craft event to fundraise for this organization on Feb. 23. You can read more about the event at the bottom of this post!
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this technique!
