It's been years since I tried the technique of using reinkers with baby wipes. Now I know why. Not only did I have inky fingers but my first two attempts at trying to create stripes for a nice plaid background were a bust. Therefore, I followed Ashley's lead in this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday and created flowers using SU Mauve Mist Reinker. My colors are limited because I haven't bought any reinkers since first buying Stampin' Up inks years ago. Since I stamped the Splits using Delicata Silvery Shimmer Ink on vellum, I added a strip of Soft Stone card stock to help the Green Parakeet embossed sentiment show up a little better. Duh, as I'm typing this post I just realized I used a paper towel instead of a baby wipe. No wonder my stripes looked ridiculous! Hopefully, it still qualifies for the challenge because I don't have time to recreate another card. We're leaving town early in the morning for the weekend to attend our grandnephew's high school graduation, and I still have to pack. This is it.
Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments.
