Baby Wipe Reinker Challenge at Technique Tuesday

Evening Everyone
Well my Sky box officially hates me. All I can say is thank God for Sky channels +1.
For some reason my box stopped recording part way through the Opening Ceremony to the Paralympics last night!!!
Fortunately I was catching up on some previously recorded viewing and noticed  so that I didn't miss too much, only some of the Teams entering the Stadium.
Wasn't it Awesome!! We can certainly lay on a good do.
Joclyn, who comes to classes at Davina, and her entire family are among the volunteers at the Paralympic Games. This means that we will hear all about it from first hand experience when she manages to get back to class later in September, once her duties are done.
One of my lovely Crafty Cardmaking Teamies, Mynnette,  runs a challenge blog called Technique Tuesday, where this month she has shared a Baby Wipe Reinker Challenge with us.
I having been trying all month to come up with something for it, and finally suceeded tonight.
The background to the main panel was created using Mynnette's technique, and then I stamped and embossed a lovely Woodware image over the top of it.
This is a close up of the panel which I sponged with Distress ink around the edges and embossed with clear powder.
I added some ribbon and a little Faux Card Candi.
I'm rather pleased with the results even if it wasn't exactly what I had expected, still isn't that half the fun of trying out something new.
Why don't you pop across and check out some of the other lovely techniques that she has shared, and maybe have a go at one yourself.

  5. This is a gorgeous card, and a great idea to use the babywipe technique as a background, it looks so good with the silhouette's stamped over the top.
