Mystery Stamping August 23, 2021 Featuring the Baby Wipe Technique

The what....technique?  Yes, you heard it right - the Baby Wipe Technique.  This is a neat technique to use to get several colors at the same time on your stamp.  I featured the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set because I wanted to show off how pretty those leaves are inked up in several colors.  Here's my first card:

And here's the second card:
