MIM #168 & Fusion Challenge


Ashley shows us the versatility of baby wipes this week at PTI.

With the application of re-inkers to a baby wipe, a stamp becomes a glorious mix of color and texture!
The trick is to choose the colors carefully.
Mud is the result if you don't!
I enjoyed playing with this technique a bit too much, and went through a couple
of experiments before coming up with what I thought was non-mud.
You can plan certain effects (which I found after a few mistakes), like where your light and dark
end up. 


Ended up looking rather Hawaiian, so it's going to a cousin who lives on the big island.

Ruby Reprise
Ruby Rose Die Cuts
Wet Paint Sentiment
Re-Inkers: Harvest Gold, Berry Sorbet, Raspberry Fizz, Scarlett Jewel, New Leaf, Tropical Teal
Inks: Smokey Shadow & Tropical Teal
