Before go any further should welcome my wonderful new Encouragers who have joined this blog! it still amazes me that folk want to join :D thank you! you cheer my heart more than you know .. all of you!
Showing you today a new method seen before, but forgotten, so when saw it again, and thought must try it.
Had to make an orange and black card for OSA, so decided to use the method by Beate Johns of Splitcoaststampers ~ inking up a stamp block. She did as one layer card but I didn't.
Grain shaft UM stamp from Artneko stamps, with archival ink.
Cosmic Shimmer have the most fabulous colours but they are hopeless at getting blocked, Glimmer mists are better sprays in this regard I have found. This gorgeous gold one is one of them. May buy some small spray bottles and decant, but wondered if they might not do the same? I just used sponge to apply. However, as result of sponging, I had accident as you can see! thankfully was able to reattach without too much drama, when dry. I think only I will know - and those who read this post :D
Also just wanted to let you know have a post below this one (or here) on how to make your own embossing buddy or Anti-static pad for Stamping with Embossing Powder, for when you lose yours like I did! (see pickie on right)
Also there is a Calligraphy text posted back on the weekend, on the middle Verse in the Bible ~ see here!
Here is the requisite Aussie shot - of our local "5-min-walk-to" beach! a windsurfer was riding the waves!
Thanks so much everyone of you who have popped over here for a peek and chat and may our wonderful God bless your day wherever you may be, Happy WOYWW!
