This was a great excuse to get out my favourite baby critter set: Zoo Babies from Stampin' Up, which was first seen in the 2013-14 Annual Catalogue.
It was hard to choose which of the adorable baby critters to use but as you see, the giraffe and the toucan won the day.
It's quite a simple card. The little hill is sponged using a post-it note mask, then stamped over using a grass stamp that I got three or four years ago from jumble at the Church Fair. It's unmarked, so I don't know how old it is but I think, very!
The new thing I tried out was to try to partially emboss the corner. I wanted to have embossing fading out just as though it was sponging that was gently fading out. There were a few false starts, getting the angle just right and it perhaps not something I'll attempt on a regular basis but somehow, on the third try, I got what I was aiming for!
So, dig out those retro baby critters, ink them up and show us what you can do. We love to see what everyone does and we love to comment. You have until 21 April to show us your retro rubber.
