So Sweet --- FM194

I love the Friday Mashup because it mixes things up.  This week, for example, they are challenging people to create a project that combines baby with the colours tangerine, aqua and brown (plus a neutral).  Well, my neutral was easy enough.  White is one of my go-to colours, especially where baby cards are concerned.  The tangerine gave me a few second thoughts until I decided that, for baby especially, Crisp Cantaloupe is a washed-out tangerine.  The rest, Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar were easier to choose.


For my stamping I used the adorable little bunny from the Baby, We've Grown set as my image and the Hello Life set for my sentiment.  As an added mix-up I also entered the "Less is More" challenge for my sketch.

                                      

My base is Whisper White with my next layer being the wonderfully versatile Irresistibly Yours Designer Paper available through Sale-a-bration.  I sponged the edges with alternating Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana to showcase the stars.

I decided to use a long strip of Vellum cardstock for my sentiment and first stamped it with the "so sweet" stamp using Baked Brown Sugar and then stamped right over it using my Versamark.  That way I was able to heat emboss the sentiment with my Clear embossing powder.  The Photopolymer stamps make exact stamping over an image as easy as can be.

    1. Thanks so much, Chrissie. I love the bunny and have used him so often without tiring of him. I also love the beautiful image of the bridge and groom in that set. It's definitely a stamp set that I'll always keep.
