Baby Wipe

by Beate Johns

Add drops of re-inker onto a baby wipe and create multicolored images.

Supplies

  • Baby wipe

  • Two or Three Dye Re-Inkers

  • Craft sheet or paper plate

  • Solid stamp, (Flourishes Fanciful Flourishes used here)

  • Neutral cardstock

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Fold the baby wipe in half, then fold in half again. Place on a craft sheet or paper plate.

  2. Step 2

    Starting with the darkest color of re-inker, start adding drops of it on the baby wipe.

  3. Step 3

    With the second re-inker, add more drops to the wipe.

  4. Step 4

    With the lightest colored re-inker, fill in all the white spaces you have left on the baby wipe.



  5. Step 5

    Ink up the stamp using this makeshift inkpad.

  6. Stamp the image on cardstock.

  7. Step 6 (Optional)

    If you have a two-step stamp set, stamp the second image over the solid one for a more detailed look.

  8. Step 7

    Finish your project.

Variations

  1. Try detailed stamps

Hi There
your tutorial have inspired me to get all of this wonderful stuff, but I have a few questions, firstly when you say baby wipes it looks like an embossed tissue.our referral to baby wipes is a wet one so I am a little confused as to weather the baby wipe is wet to start with. is it possible for you to clarify that for me as the idea is wonderful what you do with it. I am very keen to get started on all these ideas thanks for your wonderful talent. kind regards Sarina

Hi Sarina,
The baby wipe I used is a regular baby wipe. It's wet, right out of the baby wipe box.
Can't wait to see your creation!

I love the subtle colour effect of this technique. Are the baby wipes you use wet or dry? I suspect some of the cheaper brands would not be suitable, as they are not very thick, but might have to do some experimenting!
