The leaves in this stamp set just begged to be stamped using the baby wipe technique. What I didn't do was take the "used" baby wipe and swipe it across glossy white cardstock to create a custom background ... next time!

Thanks so much. I had such a blast with this. At first I used two baby wipes folded in half. Definitely soaked up the reinkers that way. So then I started over and just used ONE prefolded baby wipe (just as it comes out of the container) and then I only folded it once to make a square. I pressed the leaf stamp into the baby wipe to see where I wanted to put color. Then I dropped my reinkers in and around the leaf imprint. I only put one drop of the Bravo Burgundy at one edge of the leaf. It's sooooo cool to actually ink up your stamp and then press it onto paper. (It's almost like using the Ranger Cut and Dry Felt Pads to create your own custom stamp pad.) And as the leaf image started to fade, I just added more reinker drops.
