SC 042/12…

It was my turn to create the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.  Along with the sketch, we had to use the Technique – Baby Wipe.

I started out with something completely different in mind & when I couldn’t get my mind onto paper, I sort of winged this one, but am more than happy with the end result.  As I love Pink & Black, I decided to create something a little softer with a lighter pink, but still teaming it with Black.  I also kept the card to a minimum as I wanted the technique to be the focal point.

Measurements –
Base Card – Whisper White – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – Basic Black – 5 1/8″ x 3 5/8″ or 13cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 – Glossy Cardstock – 5″ x 5 1/2″ or 12.5cm x 9cm

Inside Card…

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Flower Fancy, Short & Sweet
Ink – Staz-On – Black
Cardstock  – Whisper White, Basic Black, Glossy, Pretty in Pink
Punches – Modern Label, Word Window, 1/16″ Circle Handheld
Ribbon – 1/8″ Taffeta – Pretty in Pink
Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Tombow Multipurpose, Re-Inker – Pretty in Pink, Basic Pearl, Bigshot
Non-SU – Wet Ones

After I had applied my technique to my piece of Glossy Cardstock using Pretty in Pink Re-Inker & a Wet Ones, I stamped my image in the bottom LH corner of the cardstock with Black Staz-On.  I was going to colour it using the same Re-Inker, but thought I would leave it how it is & keep it very simple.  I then run the piece through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder – Prefect Polka Dots.  

I made a ink pad from the same Wet Ones I had previously used, using Pretty in Pink Re-Inker, inked my greeting & stamped direct onto a scrap piece of Glossy Cardstock.  This was punched out with the Word Window Punch & adhered to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock which had been punched with the Modern Label Punch.  I then punched a small hole in each end of the Basic Black Label with the 1/16″ Handheld Punch, threaded a piece of Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon through, tucked the ends under & adhered to the piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

The whole piece was then adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White with Snail Adhesive.  I popped a Basic Pearl to the middle of the flower to finish the card.

I would really like to know what you think?  Is it too plain????
