I love the Baby Wipe Technique samples on but I didn’t have any baby wipes. Instead, I used alcohol and cotton balls with the reinkers – seems to work 🙂 The Rose Red ink dried lighter so I layered on Regal Rose cardstock for a better match. We’ll be doing this card at my Techniques Class next week.

Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Always
Paper: Glossy White, Basic Black, Regal Rose
Ink: Basic Black, Ink refills: Summer Sun, Only Orange, Rose Red
