Ink Techniques: Baby Wipe

Make a multi-coloured ink pad with a Baby Wipe and re-inkers!

Choose colours that blend well together because they're going to mix. Then, ink your stamp or swipe some card stock to make plaid.

 Fold a Baby Wipe in quarters and place it on a plastic surface. I used a page protector.

Use re-inkers to add colours. Use colours that will look good blended together.
 Ink an image and stamp.
 I made a background paper with a watercolour leaf image.
 When you're done stamping, you can fold the Baby Wipe and swipe it on card stock. Turn the card stock and swipe again to make plaid.

Use some rubber gloves to protect your hands! I wish I had.

I used a leaf outline image on my plaid and cut out the leaves.
