It’s easy as can be to create striking rainbow backgrounds for your cards. All you need are some ink refills, a bone folder, and a baby wipe!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wrap the baby wipe around the bone folder and then add  6-8 drops of each colour ink refill to the wipe, creating five spots of colour. The spots will bleed into each other as they soak into the wipe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Slide the bone folder across your cardstock to create rainbow-coloured stripes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Experiment with different patterns and orientations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re left with any blank spots at the edges, you can trim the cardstock, or fill in with Blends or blender pen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And finally, finish your card as desired.

Once you’ve made a card with this technique, be sure to share a photo in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!

This week I’m participating again with the crafting blog hop, “As You See It” Challenge. These weekly challenges are meant to inspire creativity and encourage participants to interpret the theme as they wish. Anyone is welcome to participate!

This week’s theme is “Fragile Flames”, named for the colour scheme of Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove, and Mango Melody.  I decided to experiment with a technique I just recently learned, using a baby wipe and ink refills to pull colour across the cardstock (watch for an upcoming blog post on how to do this technique!).

I used the Stitched All Around stamp set for the sentiment, and the co-ordinating Stitched Labels dies for the little hearts. It’s a little hard to see in the photo above, but the black layer is also embossed with the stitched detail dies from the same set, to add texture.

 

I hope you enjoyed my project! Don’t forget to click on the image below so you can visit the other blogs and see their projects using this same colour scheme. If you like my project, you can see the products I used in the shopping list at the bottom of the post.

If you’re interested in playing along next time, visit the Facebook page or the blog for the As You See It Challenge and get inspired!

Happy Stampin’!

Remember last week when I showed you how to use your ink refills to refill your inkpads, and promised to teach you an awesome technique you could use those ink refills for all on their own? Here it is – the baby wipe technique! You won’t believe the awesome colours and effects you can create with this technique.

You’ll need:
An ordinary kitchen plate
4-5 ink refills in co-ordinating colours
An alcohol-free baby wipe
