Feather- Photo Paper and Baby Wipes

Hello and Welcome.
Trying out something new today using my Distress Oxide inks.

A friend of mine gave me a stack of HP photo paper that she couldn't use.  I wanted to try and use it for my card and after watching a few videos on YouTube I was off to try this fun and simple technique.

So like I said, I began with a piece of photo paper.  I inked up a sheet of acetate with my Distress Oxide inks, sprayed with water and pressed onto the paper.  You are left with a chalky looking inking.  I let that dry for a moment, then placed the piece inside my Misti.  These feathers are one of my favs from Technique Junkies so I inked it up with more DOX and stamped it over the bkg.  
Now for the magic part......I took a baby wipe and wiped over the surface of the whole card.  Amazing, it just all wiped away the chalky look and revealed wonderfully bright colour. 
So simple yet effective.
I then stamped the sentiment and done.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

don't you just love it when you wipe off the muted chalky residue and get this wonderful Vibrant image. Gorgeous Karen :)

This is gorgeous Karen. I made a background fairly recently using glossy paper but I used ordinary distress inks, so must try it with the oxides as it looks phenomenal. x

OH! WOW! I've tried stamping onto photo paper and it didn't work at all, it seems I need different inks? LOL. FABULOUS result Karen.

One fabulous card Karen. LOVE the colours ... fantastic background and beautiful stamped feathers. I have tried this technique, so know that it's an instant surprise to see all those bright colours emerge from a simple baby wipe over the surface. xx
