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

Ink Resist + Stampscapes Brayer card

Hullo there everyone! Well, our winter is lovely, fairly warm and sunny where we live but very cold, snowy down south and up on the northern tablelands, about an hour or so inland from here.. 
Also really enjoying watching Le Tour de France .. with all it's thrills and spills .. my brother is over there again riding each day part of the course as Aussie bike tour guide .. they usually do about 2/3 of the route each day then watch the race from a vantage point. :D

I am sharing again a couple of cards from the dozen I made for a very dear family who lost their dad.
See others shown here, here and here - two each link. .. or just scroll down below the posts.
This is an ink resist: 1.stamp the background stamp on white card with clear embossing powder
2. Using Distress Inks, ink up background with sponge daubers - Peacock Feathers, Dusty Concord, Weathered Wood.
3. Use same inks to color white mounted card, for background. "With Love" is wooden Print Blocks
Stamp from 1990's, embossed in silver, inked in Peacock feathers.
Stampscapes and brayered background (see here) on glossy card image, with masked moon. Stampscapes stamps - Lakeside cabin stamp, rock platform, reeds,and small tree branch at top, inked with black around edge. I like this last stamp 'cos they look like gumleaves.
Used curved Spellbinders borderabilities on background, with two CB embossing folders, distressed a little - bubbles (mauve) and reed (grey). "I'm praying for you" stamp is Stampabilities.

 Thanks so much every one for popping over for a peek as chat, and may God bless your day wherever you may be!

Have a good Sunday.

Lovely cards! The colours on the first card are three of my favourite Distress Inks and the background stamp is gorgeous. The second card is so peaceful. Thank you for joining us at Bizzy Becs Anything Goes

Hi Shaz, thanks for the warm welcome back you put on my page, it is nice to be loved.
I do love your cards on here, I know it is not your WOYWW posting but I saw the beautiful ink resist one and had to comment on it, I must have a go at that technique but it won't be a gorgeous as your.
The Brayered on is lovely too, but I haven't got the hang of brayering so probably won't try to copy that technique.
