SC 042/12...

It was my turn to create the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.  Along with the sketch, we had to use the Technique - Baby Wipe.

I started out with something completely different in mind & when I couldn't get my mind onto paper, I sort of winged this one, but am more than happy with the end result.  As I love Pink & Black, I decided to create something a little softer with a lighter pink, but still teaming it with Black.  I also kept the card to a minimum as I wanted the technique to be the focal point.

Measurements -
Base Card - Whisper White - 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" or 21cm x 15cm - Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 - Basic Black - 5 1/8" x 3 5/8" or 13cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 - Glossy Cardstock - 5" x 5 1/2" or 12.5cm x 9cm
Inside Card...

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Flower Fancy, Short & Sweet
Ink - Staz-On - Black
Cardstock  - Whisper White, Basic Black, Glossy, Pretty in Pink
Punches - Modern Label, Word Window, 1/16" Circle Handheld
Ribbon - 1/8" Taffeta - Pretty in Pink
Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Tombow Multipurpose, Re-Inker - Pretty in Pink, Basic Pearl, Bigshot
Non-SU - Wet Ones

After I had applied my technique to my piece of Glossy Cardstock using Pretty in Pink Re-Inker & a Wet Ones, I stamped my image in the bottom LH corner of the cardstock with Black Staz-On.  I was going to colour it using the same Re-Inker, but thought I would leave it how it is & keep it very simple.  I then run the piece through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder - Prefect Polka Dots.  

I made a ink pad from the same Wet Ones I had previously used, using Pretty in Pink Re-Inker, inked my greeting & stamped direct onto a scrap piece of Glossy Cardstock.  This was punched out with the Word Window Punch & adhered to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock which had been punched with the Modern Label Punch.  I then punched a small hole in each end of the Basic Black Label with the 1/16" Handheld Punch, threaded a piece of Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon through, tucked the ends under & adhered to the piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

The whole piece was then adhered to the Base Card - Whisper White with Snail Adhesive.  I popped a Basic Pearl to the middle of the flower to finish the card.

I would really like to know what you think?  Is it too plain????

Vicky, you and I must think alike. The pink is so pretty and very subtle. Great challenge.
