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

Bizzy Becs DT Post No.1 - Penny Black Wonderful Day + NBUS

Hi there everyone .. such great excitement here today!!

Please join us do - prize posted world wide!
Anything Goes! and the winner of each months challenge, will receive a Mystery Prize - being a die or stamp.
 Well, my card for this months challenge is a 3D PB stamped image. Will share how it's made it step by step.
 For those who don't want to know all the details - then just look at the pickies :D

As I was using the Penny Black Wonderful Day Stamp set I stamped it out a number of times in Versafine Onyx Black with clear embossing powder. This was a birthday card for a lady suffering with dementia, well along in the illness. She loves bright colours so went with these digi papers I had. I looked online through images of daises to find one that was a suitable colour, and chose this one here, yellow with deep purple centre. I also decided it would suit best of all the
Spellbinder Majestic Marvellous squares, using the largest die from it.
Here colouring the edge of the die whilst it is in die, with PanPastel and a chalk in deeper colour to match base navy card I was using.
On right are all the layers coloured (Paper stumps for coloured blending), rounded and shaped (using a shaping tool and a foam mat).
I only coloured the layers which were going to showing, and cut out the "letter" in Hedgie's hands of base piece, as needed to colour it and overlay it on top where made slight mistake ;).
Grey Promarker and scrap pf paper is there because I go around the white edges of all the cut pieces, to hide stark whiteness on the side edge.

Emboss with cuttlebug lightly navy cardstock for to hand cutting around, as a cutting guide to put under main image die cut.

 Here it is all finished. Used the two wee butterfly stamps, also shaped, which came with the set, as Hedgie needed to be looking at something !
Added some ribbon from stash to it, and that was all it needed really.

Hi Shaz, you have used one of my most fav Hedgies, and my oh my, what glorious colors you've made him. Love the deep yellow on the flower, and Hedge looks grand topping that cheery paper. Like that die too, and seems we both like the edge shading. Doesn't it add so much depth to the image? LOVE, LOVE this one. Happy week ahead, and TFS. Hugs.
