Sunny Creations Challenge No. 42

May 27, 2012

The challenge this week has been set by Vicky.  She has given us a great sketch and asked that we use the Baby Wipe Technique. Well I have never used this technique in any way shape or form, so it really was a challenge for me.

I decided to go with the swiping option, rather than the stamping option.  There are good tutorials on these techniques on Splitcoast Stampers here and here.   I folded up my baby wipe and added some drops of Night of Navy and Bashful Blue reinkers.   I swiped this across my Whisper White Glossy White card stock and got a lovely striped pattern.  I didn’t want to blend the colours too much.   I then stamped the large floral image from the Creative Elements stampset   using Night of Navy ink over the background.  I wrapped the piece with Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon, tied a knot and attached the piece to scored and folded Night of Navy card stock.  I stamped the greeting from the Petite Pairs stampset and punched it out using the Large Oval Punch.  I attached the greeting to a Night of Navy Decorative Label and attached it over the ribbon using dimensionals.  I stamped the image from the Mixed Bunch stamp set using Night of Navy ink and punched it out using the Blossom Punch.  I used my bone folder to curve the petals slightly downward and added a Night of Navy Flower brad to the centre.  I couldn’t resist adding a Small Basic Rhinestone to the centre of the Flower brad.  I wanted the curve on the petals to stay once it was attached to the card front so I added a dimensional under each petal and used Mini Glue Dots in the centre to attach it to the card front.

So now it is time to visit Vicky, Gwen and Tanya to see what they have created this week.  Once you have your card, scrap page or 3d item, then pop over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  Hope you get a chance to try out this fun technique.

Bye for now, Kris.
