Wishing You Sunshine

It's a Just Us Girls Saturday and time for a technique challenge. Maria is our hostess and she has chosen the baby wipe technique for this week. Here is the LINK to a tutorial on SCS but there are others out there as well.

I had never done the baby wipe technique like the SCS tutorial shows. I had done a completely different version as shown on Stamp TV. However, being true to Maria's challenge I thought I'd try this new way. Boy did I have trouble. NOT with the technique - it's super simple but rather with the final card. I won't bore you with details and I'm not overly thrilled with the end result - let's just say I was just DONE!

Used Scattered Showers from PTI as my stamp set - you can see that I stamped three umbrellas from my one baby wipe. Cut the umbrellas out and mounted them with dimensionals for depth. Added a simple sentiment for someone who's a bit "blue" right now. Some Rain Drops as embellishments and I called it good to go.

Here's a closer look at the babywipe technique - it's hard to tell but I used 4 colors all from SU! soft subtles.
