Make It Monday #287 - Baby Wipe Inking

Hello friends.  Ashely is hosting this weeks Make It Monday challenge and showing us a few different ways to use baby wipes in our inking up of backgrounds.  Fun and easy...definitely will use these techniques again!!

I started by smooshing my background piece with some Aqua Mist re-inker on my craft mat, and then when dry, tried Ashley's technique of scrunching up a baby wipe and dipping it into Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores inks that I had put on a clear block.  I ended up covering up a lot of the background with the rest of my card, but if you enlarge the photo, you can see it better!


I used the Mix & Mat: Flourish die to cut a piece of white to add my flowers (Some Like It Hot) onto, and then also added my sentiment banner (Just Desserts) over it.  A few enamel dots finished off my card.  Really like the way this background turned out and think it adds a nice backdrop for the rest of the card.  Thanks Ashley!!

I FINALLY made a coin purse!!  I have had the coin purse die for a looooong time and never done anything with it till I saw MARYBETH had made a couple using felt backed material (The Felt Pod) and absolutely fell in love with them!  Had to order some of the material and then re-watched ERIN LINCOLN'S video, and voila!  Easy peasy!!

 

Even putting the 4" zipper in was easy!  And this material is so cool...does NOT ravel!  Can't wait to make some more now!  Thanks Marybeth for inspiring me!!  :0)

Make sure you check out Ashley's beautiful cards and great video and then play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)

    I am so happy you used that coin purse die you have had for way too long! 😊 Its beautiful and the zipper... not scary , right! Love the print you picked and the tassel on the zipper pull! I can't stop making them with that felt backed material from " The Felt Pod"! Nancy has some gorgeous coin purses too from a while back for more inspiration! Love this post today!

  4. Well I think you ought to go into the designing designer paper business. It's just beautiful in those colors, so tropical with the hibiscus. And it looks like I better get on the ball and find that adorable fabric backed felt. Aren't they fun to make? The tassel on the coin purse is adorable!!! Thank YOU for the inspiration!

  8. Gorgeous background for those beautiful hibiscus flowers! Love it! I covered up most of my background, too, which I slightly regretted, but since this is such an easy technique, I may try it again and let the background take centre stage. Love your coin purse, too!
