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 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Penny Black Aspire stamp – Brayered Background in a Triptych

A big thanks for this card to Shaz Silverwolf and to Trish @ My Daily Dose Blogspot for this card…

You can see Shaz Silverwolf’s brilliant cards with this stamp here and here and here, and of course it was put in my wish list.
Method: a brayered background was made with a post note moon the Adironack Dye ink colours were applied gradually. It is done with the colours of Adirondack that Sandy HulsartYou-tube video (Purple Twilight, Mountain Rose and Peach Bellini), as seen on this post here..
 Like Shaz did in some of her cards, I decided to do it in triptych format, and stamped over the background in Sepia tones with new pad in Archival Ink.

As I did not have mounting card in the right colours I used a deep red and changed it into the right sepia tone by brayering the ink over it and allowing to dry. Mounted and finished the card while crafting with my new crafty friend Trish - she has a gorgeous Martha Stewart punch which she kindly used on the bottom of the card. -Martha Stewart Deep Double Edge Punch - Garden Gate Trim, can get here in Oz from Scrap dragon. I cant use them because of arthritis so only use die borders.

We had so much fun crafting together here on Monday and I pray it will be the first of many such times together. I mounted the same sepia-toned card underneath to finish it off.

Please see Trish’s brilliant work here, My Daily Dose Blogspot…and a VERY big thanks to these two ladies!
Till next time,
May God be your Strength through each day,
Love Shaz in Oz.x
