Happy Birthday Sarah-Jane

Today is my Stampin Up sister Sarah-Jane's birthday and here's the card I have made for her.

It's another card made using the baby wipe technique. I have used Real Red and Daffodil Delight
re-inkers to create the three colours that have been stamped with the flower stamp from 
the free Sale-a-bration stamp set. The leaves are stamped in Old Olive and the borders are punched in Pumpkin Pie card stock with the Scallop Trim border punch.
The butterflies are made using the Beautiful Wings embosslits with Daffodil Delight card stock.
Sentiment from Petite Pairs.

I have had a couple of people ask what the baby wipe technique is - so here goes!!
You take any sort of baby wipe (I use a well known supermarket's value brand)
and fold it  2 or 3 times .  Place it on an OLD saucer or plate (not you finest porcelain!!)
and add a few drops of ink in various colours.  For the card above I put 6 drops of Real Red ink in the middle of the folded baby wipe, then 6 drops of Daffodil delight next to that,
then add 3 drops of DD on top of 3 drops of RR, which makes the orange colour.
I tried to keep the ink drops in a sort of rounded square shape - and it will look like a little ink pad -
which it is.  Proceed by stamping your selected stamp on the baby wipe  and you should get the effect shown above.  If you try this, do let me know and pop it on your blog so that I can see your results!!
