As if by Magic

Hi All
Have you had a good day?
I have been inspired today, to make a card for a specific challenge over at Woodware where the Girls are all playing with Pen Score Magic Stamp by Clearsnap.
This was a bit of a 'blast from the past' as it has been around for years, in fact my card is made using some images that I captured in the moldable foam blocks, some of them over 13 years ago when my first Granddaughter Megan was born.
The background was created using the Magic Stamped images of Megan, Saskia and Ciaran's hand and foot prints.
The Magic Stamp is a moldable foam block which you heat with a heat tool and then press onto a dimensional object to create a stamp. In this case it was my Grandchildren's hands and feet at around 10 days old.
My Daughter did get a little nervous at the thought of her new precious little bundle being scarred for life by her evil Grandmother but I made an impression of my hand first just to prove to her that it wouldn't hurt the baby, and after she had tried it herself she agreed.
You see that is the beauty of this fabulous product if you don't like the impression, or you get fed up with it, you just reheat and hey presto you can try something new.
Or in this case you can keep it as a permanent, but useful reminder of just how small they once were.
I added to my collection when the twins were born, but somehow Reece managed to get left out when he was tiny so I have his prints taken at the same time as the twins only his are a little larger since he was 5 at the time lol.
I kept the card fairly basic, using Francoise fabulous FRS238 Huge Baby stamp which just screamed out for some Paper Piecing.
I thought that I would enter this into a few challenges, as I haven't done that in a while, so here is the list.
Craft Your Passion - No coloured in Images (I hope that Paper Piecing will be OK)
Stamps and Fun = Creativity - Baby
The Paper Girls - Make Your Own Stamp
Here Come the Boys - Baby Boy
I will have to play with my Magic stamps again, but not before I have safely tucked these precious ones away somewhere safe, they are definitely not for reheating.
