CTD11 Striped Wipe
This is my take on this week's challenge on Color Throwdown which combines old olive, chocolate chip and the new baja breeze. I used the 'striped wipe technique' to create my background. You can find Beate's wonderful tutorial on Splitcoast. All you need are reinkers, glossy cardstock and a baby wipe to create this technique. I chose old olive and baja breeze reinkers for the background, and stamped my Upsy Daisy image in Versafine antique sepia. Before my image dried, I sprinkle on dazzling diamonds. Although it doesn't show in the photo, my image shimmers nicely. I added some strips of old olive, chocolate chip and baja breeze and a quick embossing with my Cuttlebug and this card was done. Thanks for stopping by! Supplies: Image - SU! upsy daisy; Paper - old olive, chocolate chip, baja breeze, glossy cardstock, generic white base; Ink - Versafine vintage sepia, baja breeze and old olive reinkers; Accessories: Cuttlebug, handheld circle punch.
