Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
This weekend my AWESOME Crafty friend
Georgiana from Carson's Creations
asked me if I would do a Follow up
Tutorial on the Baby Wipe Method Card I Made
So, I said SURE I could --
Now, I know there are some videos
on how to do this - But I only watched
1 video and it was from a Stampin' Up Demo.
from Aug. of 2017 -
When she did the Baby Wipe Method -
She used a Stamp with this method
Because that's how you're suppose to do it!
I tried it and didn't like my results with my stamp
and it was TOTALLY USER ERROR!
I should have used a Solid image stamp
Which, well I DID NOT!! LOL
And that's when I thought could I do this
on my water color paper?? Sure Enough &
I got some really NEAT RESULTS from it --
Soooo -- Here ya go - I hope it helps someone out!
I started out with Baby Wipes, 4 Distress Inks and some Tim Holtz Water Color Paper
Now - You can probably use ANY water color paper (I just like this type)
And YOU MUST use DYE INK - It's what works with this technique
So any dye inks you have will work! :)
I took 2 Baby wipes and layed them on top of each other
I folded it in half
Then folded it one more time - to look like this!
You do this so the Baby Wipe acts like an Ink Pad
You only need a few drops of each color - So You can see I only
used 3 drops of the Faded Jeans Color
So this is what I ended up with after adding my inks -
So, in the video I watched, she used a Solid Stamp and just went
straight down into the ink with her stamp - (dabbing it)
It was a straight Up and Down motion - the whole point
was to get your stamp wet using the different colors
But if you dip your stamp in several areas - you'll just have a
muddy mess -- (I hope that made sense)
Because I didn't like how my image was - I tried this instead --
I picked up my baby wipe and started to dab at my watercolor paper
Using the different colors -- it turned out neat --
Then I added some Water - I wanted my colors to blend a little more
Then I wanted my Background to shine so I sprayed on some
Frost Shimmer Mist -- (NOTE) -- My photo is not in the right steps -
I Sprayed my Shimmer frost first (which is why it doesn't look like my
Colors blended together) - Again User Error!!! LOL
After letting my Paper Dry (I took a Heat tool to it for the Pictures)
I didn't do that the first time I tried this - I actually let it sit off to
dry til the next day - But You can Totally Use your Heat Gun
I know you wanna get this done! LOL
Then I splattered Some Brushed Pewter Stain on my Background
I thought the Blues & Purples needed a bit of Silver!!!
AND This IS my Final Product!! Everything is blended and actually
Sparkles in person!
Now another (USER ERROR) I noticed for Myself IS
I like to use the Smooth side of this Water color paper
and what did I do??? The Textured side! GRRR!
In Crafting there are NO MISTAKES! Just Happy
Creative outlooks! :)
As you can see - I Made 2 backgrounds with that same Baby wipe
The second image is where I used the Smooth side of the
watercolor paper - See the difference?
They both turned out great, but I'm a SMOOTH Side Gal!! LOL
I do hope you guys try this and let me know if you did --
I would LOOOOVE to see what you create --
Here's the Link to the video I watched
Big HUGS and Have a Great Week!!!
