GINGERSNAPS PLAYS WITH BABYWIPES..............

Hi, we all use those wonderful Babywipes for cleaning our stamps and mopping up messes as well as getting the dust off furniture etc.  I've mopped up Distress Inks off my Craft Mat for this piece and diecut them to make this flower then added it to one of my Art Journal pages.

To see how else you can use Babywipes in your artwork visit Gingersnap Creations where the rest of the DT have come up with some great examples.

Gingersnaps Yahoo Group are having a new swop and its Magnets this time, so am busy putting mine together at the moment and will show them when completed, for more info visit Gingersnap Creations.

I hope you have had a good day.  My cough is easing up now thank goodness and hopefully will be able to get on with some painting.  Take care, will see you all soon, Hugs Annette x

Well shame on me I've never even bought a single baby wipe in my life ... but now I can see that I need a whole case!

Your creation is awesome! I love the soft flowers coupled with the rougher (appearing) texture of the paint ... Superb!
