Gingersnap Baby Wipe challenge- baby wipe swipe

I made this for the gingersnap challenge to make a card using baby wipes.

To make the background I wrapped some babywipes around the edge of my acrylic block and dabbed it onto a multicoloured inkpad. I then wiped this across the card to make a simple but colourful effect. I then added lots and lots of stampotique stamps using the same inkpad.
I finished with a girl stamp and a hello for a general greeting.

yesterday's card was created using the same technique, but first I masked with post-it notes to create a strip and swiped the acrylic block-baby wipe-ink combo from one post it to the other. I then overstamped the dragonfly and greeting. I finished the card by embossing two straight lines using a scoring board.
