Finally galvanised myself into action - well sat and got some inks out anyway!
I have seen many cards where the creator has done a 'baby wipe' technique and I have never tried it. (mainly because I don't know anyone with a baby so I could steal the wipes.......😀😀)
I DO have some wipes that I use for cleaning my desk and after studying the packet - it said bleach free, so thought I would experiment and see if it worked - hey- the worst it could do was wreck an ink pad wasn't it???
Armed with a piece of watercolour paper and the said wipe I found the oldest (and shabbiest) of my Distress Inks (working on the basis that there was hardly any ink left in it and the edges were all shabby so no point re-inking) I put wipe to pad and began.
I began to get a little excited as it was actually working - added bonus it didn't seem to be having the Ink Pads screaming out in agony either!.
Once first colour on, (Antique Linen), applied some Tea Dye (not from a tea bag, but an ink pad 😏) across the middle and the bottom of the paper.
Weathered Wood came next - little dabs in the 'sky' and on the space left between the Tea Dye.
Tree stamps inked in Pumice Stone.
Left without any sentiment as have no idea what I am going to use it for - No doubt will add it on later when I have to find an emergency card!
I would welcome any comments from anyone but particularly from those clever bods who have perfected this technique and any tips would be useful - I found it quite enjoyable to do and am quite happy with the first attempt - might have another go today!
