Happy April! - Baby Wipe DP technique

Hello you out there! I have a post finally. I'm on Spring Break, so I've had time to stamp.

This card is inspired by Gina's awesome tutorial on Stamp TV. If you haven't checked it out, you must! She has tons of very cool tutorials on video. It's so great to see something demo'ed that you've wanted to try, but didn't get a move on. I did the background paper and the bird. The first picture is a stripe, which I prefer and the second is a plaid.
You fold your baby wipe into a little rectangle (2 sheets, together) and put the reinkers on the folds. Make a pattern with your colors. Then just drag the wipe (fold to paper) down the paper. I used regular whisper white. To make the plaid, continue the dragging across the paper.
Check out the STamp TV link for better instructions.
I cut the paper using my Cutt lebug with the SU top note die.
I used So Saffron, Certainly Celery, and Pirouette Pink ink and reinkers from SU and SS, CC, and Whisper White paper.
I've been wanting to ink up my bird set from SU and am always happy to use my top note die. The ribbon is SU from Salebration.

Hope you all got a break this spring. Thanks for visiting!
