Thoughts & Reminders

This is the 23rd week of A Card a Week Challenge. One card a week--for 52 weeks--with a preset challenge for each month. June is "try a new technique" challenge.  Every Tuesday I will post a card that fits the theme of the monthly challenge. This is the third card for June!

I made this card using a version of a baby wipe technique. I used Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and placed drops on a folded baby wipe.  I used three colors and then placed the white cardstock on the baby wipe to gather the colors.  I then let it dry a bit and stamped the sentiment on the colored inks.  I like that you can see a bit of the pattern that is on the baby wipes.  The plan was to have color over the entire image before using the Gina Marie Designs Wine Label die--but there is some white showing on the top corners. I used the Stampin' Up Subtle Embossing Folder for the background layer.

I really like the look of this card and hope you do too.  

Here is the inside of my card:

I hope you will stop back each Tuesday to see my creation for my A Card a Week Challenge!  June is ending next week for "try a new technique" month--so be sure to check back to see what new technique I will be using for my last card!

Great job trying something new! I really like those die cuts and the textured paper panel. The colors all tie together well.
