Hi there,

I told you I had used this die a lot!  I have used the big shot rubber mat to emboss the heart. A cute technique, I have never tried before and  I love the effect!  I  swiped the MFT die with versamark and then embossed with the rubber mat.  I think the actual die was very fine as when I embossed it didn't take very well.  I think maybe going over the embossed imprint with a versamark pen may have given a better result so I may try that next time.
I do like playing with my watercolour paints and I will definitely keep practicing with that too...... I was quite happy, too, making my own embossed paper for the sentiment!!  I smeared versamark over white cardstock and then embossed with ranger fine silver (♥) and then die cut the "cheers" I did go a little overboard and die cut a few other things for future use LOL.

Here is my take on the challenge.

When I first saw this gorgeous Moodboard, I immediately thought of babies and so I set about designing my card.  I had another look and there is not ONE thing baby there!!! LOL I think pastel and go straight to baby!!! My love for MFT continues as all products are My Favourite Things new products out.  There have been a couple of bubbies born lately and I am embarrassed to admit that I actually had to BUY a card ...... so time poor, I couldn't scrape enough time together to get one done.
It is school holidays here now until 18th so I plan to get in my craft room after I have made a path through the stuff stored and have a play....wish me luck!

anyway head on over to Ann's beautiful blog and I look forward to seeing your inspired contributions for this challenge ♥


Sending Love
