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

Craft a Scene Challenge - Brayer Elusive Images - Sympathy Card

Hullo everyone just a very quick post here today!
'Tis a bit damp under foot in our part of the coast. However, it is not as wet as on the Great Diving Range west of us. It is flooding there, at the foot of the range. It has poured up on top and on the winding road down. The spectacular waterfalls were running over the road, as you come down the mountain so the Waterfall Way (as it is called) was closed. We may have more rain by week's end - I just pray it is the right amount!

Now this is my third entry in the Craft A Scene Challenge -  do join us over there you have till Friday 27th to share a scene and anything goes! This is a sympathy card made with the brayer and Adirondack inks Cool Peri and Cloudy Blue with a moon post it note. Then inked up with black Archival ink the Elusive Images (discontinued, but I recently bought this set on eBay) Meadow set stamps. Used two - the Lavender one and the grassy one and multi-stamped them. Added a stamped sentiment cut with Spellbinder ribbon label, embossed the base pale blue card extended (post on how to do this - see here) out of Cuttlebug folder - Argyle. The really observant among you may have noticed this card beginning on my desk below...
Thanks for popping over, and do stop and chat - also there is candy see link on sidebar!
May God bless your day wherever you may be,
Shaz in Oz. x

Sounds like you are having UK weather, Shaz. It's been a pouring wet day here today too although much colder than it is with you I'm sure.
Your card is gorgeous, I love that EI stamp, it's one of my favourites.

Beyond gorgeous!! I just LOVE those two colours used together for your background. The way you stamped the images is perfectly framing the sun.
I'm so glad you mounted and posted this Shaz!! I have been keeping an eye out for that one after seeing it on your desk last week!
Hugs,
Sheree

This delightful card showing up on my dashboard drew me here Sharon, so natural and beautiful looking that I can lamost hear the wind rustling through the grasses.

That sky in the post above looks a tad ominous, I do hope you avoid the rains and associated problems it can bring.

Hi Shaz, Thank you for following my blog and kind comments made. As invited I have popped over to visit and am now following you too. Your blog is inspirational. Your work with a brayer is just amazing (this is something I cannot master ... though think I may have the wrong sort of brayer). Looking forward to getting to "know" you. Suzanne

What a gorgeous card! I love the colours - my favourite shades. You have sure worked out how to use that brayer - you can do it beautifully!
Thank you for commenting on my card and for being a follower! I have not shown many cards lately as I seem to have been super busy but cardmaking is something I must enjoy and not stress over!

Victoria said...

Beautiful card! BTW I think you are a tidy crafter and just put that mess on your dining room table! :)

This card is a beauty, I love the embossed background, gorgeous and perfectly matches the scene. I really admire those scene cards, stunning!

Anne said...

I simply love these brayerd backgrounds and you have given us a beautiful sample here. I looked up the tutorial...it's very good and now i can see where I have been going wrong...I was brayering in both directions.....Please can you tell me if you use ordinary matt card, (I only have the sort you can print on with a PC printer) or do you use gloss card? Thanks!
