ArtisticStamperCirclesCracked myself up with that title… all I meant was The Artistic Stamper has circles as their theme this month, but it sounded catchy to me!

I keep a box of baby wipes on my table for cleaning up, and it was a happy surprise to see how the circles in the wipe picked up ink. By spraying more ink directly from behind the wipe I was able to highlight certain circles and leave some plain.

I used Dyan Reaveley's ink sprays on the wipe and the background journal page. I'm in with Fashionable Stamping Challenge's Inky & Messy theme this week.

The giant bubbles on the background are a Studio 490 stamp, as are the flowers. The lady is by Dina Wakley and the word Dream is an oldie but a goodie from Catslife Press. The stamps were inked with Monarch Orange archival ink.

I cut the hearts by hand and used some blue paint around the edges to highlight them and the torn edges of the wipe itself.

Thanks so much for the visit. Next month I'll be the Guest Designer at The Artistic Stamper.  Hope to see you there!

    Hi Marjie
    Our FSC was made for you this fortnight LOL. If anyone was going to get inky and messy it was you. So great to see you join us :)
    Incredible background and what always amazes me, your colours are never muddy, always keeping their intensity and zing. Baby wipes are an amazing tool/supply and it is fabulous to see you make use of them in your actual art.
