Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.
I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years
|So here tis! wanted to use vellum embossed with stamps (Elusive Images) hardly ever used - on vellum, white embossing powder and Versamark, and a frame with glitter card. Now had to use square punch by EK Success and the scallop Spellbinders as two dies (square and scallop) would not work. Embossing folders are CB Spots and Dots, and Candy stripes, "Just for you" is SU "All Ovals" with oval punch. Then looked at it afterwards and realised: 1. it had no butterfly and 2. my friend who I was giving this too would want some mauve on it. (and why does white look cream on left?)|
|So out came the Tombows and coloured the back of the vellum, re-stamped the Just for You stamp and mounted on snippets of brayered glimmery card and punched two butterflies with same, added some pearls, and ta da!! another look to the same card. Now is just me or does this one look heaps better?|
