Baby Wipe Marbling Technique for Technique Tuesday

Now this card was such serious fun! 
After my Baby Wipe Swooshing on yesterdays Sleigh Ride card... I had another thought whilst the baby wipes were out...
And so  - for Technique Tuesday - can I now introduce you to the Baby Wipe Marbling Technique... 
The photos definitely do not do justice to the marbling effect and texture on this card...seriously amazing... almost looking like suede on some... though every make is different!
So first the image was heat embossed onto a Whisper White card panel... I used white embossing powder- though clear would work too... I also used the thinner coated Whisper White card as the coating just gives you a bit more "swooshability"... (probably not a real word...but a good one!)

Lost Lagoon ink was picked up with my baby wipe and swooshed over the whole panel...

Then the baby wipe was scrumpled, more Lost Lagoon ink picked up and the ink dabbed onto the panel...

Keep the baby wipe scrumpled, pick up Night of Navy ink and again dab away... building up the colour until you have the effect you want...

Then do a bit of Night of Navy baby wipe gentle swooshing around the edges...

Then pick up more Lost Lagoon ink and swoosh away solidly at the bottom to form that solid horizon and panel...

And finally, pick up a piece of kitchen towel and clean off the embossed image... and then it all really pops!

Leave to dry... and then stamp your greeting in Night of Navy ink...

Try it... you may become addicted... we all were...

And here is another version with the greeting pre-embossed in white too...
Love both versions.... Which do you prefer??
And still loving this Hostess set, Six Sayings - available in clear and wood mount...
