Custom Colour Ink Pad - Baby Wipe Technique

Here is another idea of what to do with re-inkers other than just re-inking your ink pads that is! It is a fairly simple process of folding a baby wipe into thirds and placing it onto a styrofoam tray or plate or other non-porous surface. Add 2-3 drops in a couple of places on the baby wipe of 2-3 different coloured re-inkers. Don't add too much ink or too many colours or the whole lot will go muddy. I normally wait 5 minutes or so for the ink to spread and then just ink up your stamp and work as normal. Try not to move the stamp too much when inking it up as that will also make it go muddy. There is normally sufficient ink to make lots of stamped images from the one custom baby wipe ink pad so be prepared to make more than just one card - this technique is brilliant for mass producing cards for special occasions or Christmas cards when you need lots, but still want them to be individual and unique.
