Baby Wipe Technique

This is the first card I have ever made using the baby wipe technique. Basically, you take a baby wipe, fold it over a few times, and place it onto a paper plate. Then you add drops of various colors of dye reinkers, mist the baby wipe a little to blend the colors, and use the baby wipe as a stamp pad. The result is similar to using a rainbow ink pad, but the colors blend together better and it gives you a more watercolored look. Solid stamps work best for this technique, so I used one of the latest fern stamps by Impression Obsession.
