Baby Wipe Stripe Technique

Over the next couple of days, I'll be posing samples of the Baby Wipe Stripe technique. The instructions below apply to each of these cards.

Baby Wipe Stripe
Fold a baby wipe (works great around credit card) and add drops of reinker to the edge of the fold line. If you want a multicolored background, continue to add more colors.

Hint: For smaller stripes, add a small dot of reinker. For wider stripes, add longer stripes of reinker.
Line the inked fold up with the edge of the glossy cardstock. Wipe the inked baby wipe over the glossy cardstock to create striped background. Add more color, linking up the inked wipe with the existing stripes to intensify and even out the colors.
Stamp focal image directly over background.
Complete card or project as desired.

  1. Great technique. It gives your card a beautiful effect.

  2. Neat technique. I'll have to give it a try. TFS
