I’ve been wanting to try out the Baby Wipe Brayer technique for a while now and the other day I finally got around to it! There are loads of tutorials and videos out there, but basically you just have a few baby wipes stacked on a plastic plate (or in a Tupperware Slice and Store!! LOL!) and create lines of ink along the stacked wipes using reinkers. I used 2 lines of Rose Red on one side, the in the middle was 3 lines of Pretty in Pink and on the other edge 4 lines of Pink Pirouette. I used less of the darker because I deliberately wanted the background to not be too dark IYKWIM?
Next, have your piece of glossy cardstock ready on top of some scrap paper and then start inking up your brayer on the baby wipes as if they are your inkpad … then just roll onto your cardstock! Very easy! As always, remember to only ink up your brayer and apply the ink to the cardstock in one direction at a time and to always start rolling just off the edge of your cardstock – hence the need for scrap paper underneath! Once you are happy, allow it to dry for a minute or two and then you can stamp on top of the background you just created 🙂
For my other colours I have used Regal Rose as the card base and Melon Mambo for the ribbon and the cardstock mat behind the glossy piece. I also added some bling to the tips of the flowers! Gosh, a pink and sparkly card… who could it be for?!! ROFLOL!!! Hope you liked it!
Take care! K 🙂
