Hi peeps - sorry I haven't been around for a few days - had a very busy week with family "things"! 
Just managed to squeeze into this week's LESS IS MORE Challenge, which is SEEING DOUBLE SEEING DOUBLE!

This reverse stamping technique is one which I haven't used for ages - it's similar to the brayering reverse stamping technique, but I have used a very old Hero Arts "Shadow Stamp", which is basically a plain square of wood-mounted rubber. The Anna Griffin blue pram was inked up with Versafine Majestic Blue, then stamped onto the Shadow Stamp. The image on the shadow stamp was then stamped onto the card. This "reverses" the image.  The pink pram was stamped with Staz-on Blazing Red, directly onto the card.
The Twins stamp is from a New Baby set by Kars.
A warm welcome to my new followers - Elizabeth and Maria.
Have a wonderful weekend ~ love to all,

What a clever technique, Sylvia. I've never tried this. I love the way you've used the two colours and shaded the words, it looks great.
Hope you've had a good week and I know you'll enjoy the next few!!!
See you soon
Hugs Lisax

Lovely card Sylvia, I've never tried the reverse stamping technique - not seen it done before (very clever.) I just love this image, it's so traditional and I admit I'm a stickler for baby

Hope you're keeping well :)
