CTD50 Striped Wipe

T
his is my take on this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #50. I used the Striped Wipe Technique to showcase this week's colors -- real red, tempting turquoise and kiwi kiss.
This technique is so easy! Just fold a baby wipe a couple of times, dot with a drop or two of each color of reinker on the folded edge and wipe across glossy cardstock. Couldn't be easier! I've included the SCS resource for this tutorial here.
I love how this background looks with my image. Since the background colors are bright and vivid, I decided to use black as an accent and left my card unadorned except for the metal sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fun weekend!
Supplies: Stamp - SU! Upsy Daisy; Ink - Versafine onyx black, SU! real red, tempting turquoise, and kiwi kiss reinkers; Paper: SU! basic black, real red, tempting turquoise, kiwi kiss, glossy white and generic white base; Accessories - clear embossing powder, K&Co. metal art.

  17. This background is AWESOME! I like your choice of stamping your flowers in black as a silhouette so that they don't compete with your vibrant inks.
