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

OSA Challenge Cards Sea with White Pen challenge

Over at Oriental Stamp Art group June challenge was to make a card with a sea scene and also for June the challenge was to use white pen.. as the time element was at a premium when for two simple cards..
1. cut a frame on large sticky note with spellbinder think this one is labels 25 by Spellbinder.
2.Then used extra re-positional tape to attach it to card and cover up all of card except where you want stamp and colours to go..
3. then stamped stamps (and heat embossed as easier to do white pen then)..
4. then on swirl one used the PanPastels to colour it, but for second one used inks and like it much better. Just used ink daubers mostly with little extra ink on them, had used them on another work so were bit inky.
5. Then added the pen, and removed the masks.
 First card is Sea - a stamp from Artneko still current. Called "The Wave and the moon Bogo" Coloured with sponge daubers and ink, plus lots of white ink for foam etc. Second stamp which is just for the June Challenge was one I thought of when saw this challenge, a Leaf swirl stamp by Chocolate Baroque (UK), Kanji from Artneko too. "Thank you" is a digi made in Word with a Da font download called One Smear - see here
Also have another card to share... over at my friend Ginny's blog "Maxam Made" she has lots of freebie digis to share and the shells on this card are one of them.
When saw them, I bethought myself of a half done card in my reject or waiting pile - with an Our Daily Bread stamp "the Sea" masked, stamped and coloured with PanPastels month ago now. Had smeared on edge of plain white card - so needed to trim and mount it.
I printed two small copies of the shells, then 3'd then but as only two layers not sure if this is 3d? :D 
I made the Bible verse digi with a Dafont script (BD Renaissance) - see previous post below on how to install them onto Word .. its so much fun! The CB folder is swirls, with fancy labels by SB. I will paste it below but not sure if is is downloaded as it is just in m Word programme, not sure how to convert them to a png file.

Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man,
the things which God hath prepared
for them that love Him.
1 Corinthians 2:9b

What a privilege we have in our wonderful God! Let us all come to Him for our strength for the day and as our Guide for the way.. 

Every blessing, thanks so very much for popping over for a peek and chat and may god bless your day wherever you may be!

These are all gorgeous Shaz. Like that you have explained how you did them too.
As I put on my blog last week, my email addy was hacked and they sent eroneous emails out twice! Glad you didn't open them. They didn't have my usual gobbeldygook on them which is how some people realised they were not mine!

Sarn said...

Wow Shaz . . . these are just WONDERFUL. I love how you made them.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Betsy said...

Those are beautiful Shaz! I always enjoy looking at your cards even though I'm not a paper crafter at all. No talent for that medium in any of my fingers. :-) The verse in I Corinthians is one of my favorites.

Marilyn Mathis said...

I like how you have used the spellbinders dies to create the shape of the masks. Very effective and unusual. Last card is a stunner too. Hugs Mrs A.
