Well it looks like fall is definitely here! Today when I went out this morning to walk my dog there was a slight chill and it felt so nice because the sun was just beginning to peek out. All this inspired me to create this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiment’s Baby Wipe Technique Challenge card with the Autumn Splendor and Day of Gratitude stamp sets. This technique is perfect for capturing the different leaf colors. I used Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive re-inkers on my baby wipe. I then used the baby wipe ink pad to stamp the Autumn Splendor leaf images and Punch Potpourri bird image on Very Vanilla card stock.
I used the Scallop Trim corner and border punches on the Very Vanilla layers. I ran the smaller Very Vanilla layer through my Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. Both Very Vanilla layers were sponged with Pumpkin Pie.
The Chocolate Chip layer is distressed with scissors.
I implemented the tone on tone technique and stamped the medallion image from the Day of Gratitude stamp set with Old Olive ink on the Old Olive layer. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and Chocolate Chip ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. As a final touch I added a half pearl for the eye of the bird and to the corner of the Old Olive layer.
I enjoyed this technique and encourage you to try it. It’s very easy and results are beautiful. You can go here to SCS to see a written and video tutorial for this technique. Once you’ve created your baby wipe technique project please post it to the Hand Stamped Sentiments site.
