Totally Techniques: Baby Wipe Technique

Screen Shot 2018-01-22 at 1.59.37 PM

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:

  1. Choose a few colours of coordinating ink refills.
  2. Put a few drops of ink refills of each colour on a folded baby wipe
  3. 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:

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!
