Hero Arts Spring Branch 'Thanks' Card

Hi all and a Happy Monday to everyone :-) 

I recently bought a few of the new Hero Arts products and was inspired by THIS card by Lisa Spangler, I actually bought the ink daubers and the background stamp after I saw Lisa's card :-)

I am in love with these pastel daubers, the colours are so soft and creamy. I made a rainbow of pastel shades by just swiping the various inks over the stamp. I coloured the branch with the daubers too and love the way the colours just blended together. I shaped the die cut using some embossing tools, this removes those little dots created by the die and gives them a more natural rounded shape. 

I followed this weeks sketch over on the Splitcoast Stampers site and used the Simon's Exclusive 'Thanks on a Line' die to fit in with the sketch ,,, perfect :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I will be back later with a reminder card for the current House Mouse 'Love' Challenge, have you joined in yet ?? We are on a mission to convert everyone to the love of House Mouse,,,, how can you resist !! :-)
