SoSS #162 - T is for Technique



Greetings & salutations snarky pals!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers.

Our challenge theme is T for Technique - interpret as you will!

I wanted to try something new and I was inspired by SISTER JULES card from the I is for Inks challenge and wanted to give the baby wipe technique a whirl.



Here's how I did it:

Inked up the piece of white cardstock ink pad straight to paper in the four colours.
Put the star stencil over the piece of inked cardstock
Put a baby wipe over the stencil
Ran it through the cuttlebug

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!  I am really happy with how the background turned out, the baby wipe pulled a fair amount of ink off the paper.

As a bonus technique I used my handheld sewing machine to stitch around the edges. Once I had done it, I realized I had the paper upside down so you get the back end of the sewing on the front...meh...whatever...LOL

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry & Peachock Feathers distress inks (Tim Holtz)
  • Star stencil (Dylusions)
  • Baby wipe
  • Oh Happy Day Combo Cardstock Sticker (Simple Stories)
  • Big Talk Snarky sentiment sticker (Tim Holtz)
  • Sewing machine (Singer)
As always, we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along.
