This card I used the pretty petals background. Notice how neither cared is exactly the same? You can use the same ink pad you made (the baby wipes) and get two different colors. I did notice though that it's easier to use this technique on smaller stamps. Like this one below.
With this card I used the FREE stamp set I got with sale-a-brations, Punch Bunch,(pg.5) and the FREE paper from the DSP & quick accents pack. (find it on pg. 7 of the sale-a-brations catalog). I LOVE FREE! And let's not forget, I used my new tulips folder. This cards was different because I actually came up with the center piece very easily, but then I couldn't come up with a card to put it on, then I thought about some of the new things that I had bought and hadn't used yet. The framed tulips worked beautifully! (you can find that in the mini catalog on pg. 12. It's only $7.95! What a steal.) I then wiped my ink pad, (baby wipe) along the sides of my card. I think it made a very nice color.
Now, one thing I absolutly love about my group of gals is that they don't always make their cards exactly like I do. It's always fun to see what someone can come up with using the exact same supplies. So here is one card that one of my ladies, (Robyn) did.
Isn't that great! I like how she turned it and added a bow. Same card, but different. Now here's the one her 7 year old grandaughter did. Lexi.I will post the tutorial for both the wipe technique and the scallop circle flower technique soon. Probably tomorrow. Thanks ladies!
Sorry for all the different shades of red. Every time I added a picture my ink color would go back to black, so I would pick the red I thought I had picked before and just now as I look at the entire thing I realize that I was picking all the different shades of red. So I hope it doesn't hurt anyone eyes and that you can read it.
