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

Tutorial: Peels Offs - Colouring + Using Transfer Sheet - Cardmaking Online DT

Hi there everyone!
This tutorial is with versatile peel offs for our newish blog, Cardmaking Online blog.
Please have a peek and comment on post if you can spare the time - see here (big blog hugs if you are able :D), and sending those especially to Mrs A. of It's an Alien Life, Sandra from Stamping for Pleasure and Sam from Hettiecraft. All three kindly took the time last post or so. :D (Addendum - also big thanks to Jools who joined our blog too! :D).
It shows uses of both pieces of an image on sheet - ie the skeleton of fish in this case and the inside of image further down. Used is the Japanese Koi, but you could use any of these sailing ship sheets or these knights, cute teddies or pretty pansies, etc.
Warning - this post is  picture heavy.
Photo a.
1. Take the sheet of silver fish peel-offs, Koi, use the fine pricking tool lift the outside skeleton of the Koi peel off and place on the plain sheet of vellum. Add the other pieces to make a small scene as shown in photo a
Photo b. colour vellum background
2. Colour the back portion of the the vellum to create a background on the vellum - inks used are shown in photo but use whatever you have, but it MUST not  be a wet type of ink. I brayered the ink on back of vellum, but you can use brush or sponge applicators. Allow to dry well before proceeding. (Colours will fade. Mounted final vellum on white card before making up.)
c. Gelly Roll pens colour the fish and lily pads
3. Colour vellum further on the back with Gelly roll pens (photos c. and d.).
d. Shaping tool used to shape back of vellum.
Use the shaping tool to gently shape the back of vellum fish to make them pop from the vellum a little (completed card below).
4. To use the inside of the image, take a transfer sheet and peel the backing paper off portion you will need for size of the image.
 Lay it sticky side down over the image left on original peel off sheet. Use the sharper end of the shaping tool to make all pieces adhere to the transfer paper.
e. .Image adhered to sticky side of transfer sheet, ready to apply to card.
5.Then take the image and use shaping tool (rounder end) again to rub it onto the piece of card. Gently remove the transfer sheet.
HINT: You may need fine tweezers to pick up very small pieces.
Voilà! the image is transferred ready to be used.
Here are the two completed cards:

Oh my eyes are glazing you can have the patience to do this I know not!! The best use of a peel off I fact the only use for peel offs - so much better than using them how they are meant to be used.

Missed you on WOYWW this week so hoping you are ok.
Great tutorial - guess this took it out of you writing it all up and taking the photos - worth it to us but hope it was the same for you and not too tiring.
Am going in hospital in the morning for a Pacemaker to be fitted so might be missing this week. Will have to see.
You take care.
Neet xx
