Baby wipe/Re-inker technique

Well today I haven't spent much time in the craft room as I have  had the decorators working in there
this morning and a class in there this afternoon, so I have only just had time to have a little play now that dinner is done with and Barry's gone out for the evening.
I had another play with the SAB stampset "Bloomin Marvelous" 
For a free stamp set it is extremely useful!

I put 2 to 3 drops of ink in Pretty in Pink, Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party
onto a wet baby wipe, folded and placed on a saucer.
I then used this as I would an ink-pad.
You can see the beautiful effect quite clearly on the flowers, it's a bit more subtle
on the butterflies.
The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.
Ribbon, Bakers Twins and card stock used is Wisteria Wonder.
Sentiment is from Petite Pairs.
Basic Rhinestone embellishments.
All products are Stampin' Up!

What do you think??
