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

Watercolours + Embossed Darkroom Door Collage Stamp - Bizzy Bec's

Hi everyone - just popping in with quick post of some watercoloured poppies for Bizzy Bec's! Please pop over here, would love it if you leave a comment on this post here!

I bought from Bec this *Darkroom Door collage stamp, which I embossed in gold EP, and heat set. Then painted image in watercolour, using the Distress Inks, smooched on a ink block and on laminated sheet. * this stamp not on Bec's site, but she can get it for you! at a great price!
I really love this card and it looks wa-aaay better in real life, sadly sometimes photos never do a card justice and red colours are one these!
The completed card:
I used Glossy accents on poppy and Our Daily Bread die set called "Lacey layered Square Dies" - it is square but I extended it into rectangle (see tutorial on this here). Can be ordered from Bec.
he "smile' stamped greeting is also a greeting from Bec - Lawn Fawn "So much to say" a really great sentiment set!
Background designer paper - Paper Pad "Wild Rose Blackberry Lane", bought from Bec.

Well, short and sweet today. I am really tired and a tad annoyed with blogger. I had another post done and lost the lot, so this is take two.
No idea why. It is just very clunky of late.
I hope to post more later but things are still very busy and energy limited. Thank you all for being patient and I am very grateful too, for I have new folk to welcome, too which will do soon, God willing.
I end with a verse I really need, a favourite of many folks.
May our great God bless you all, you are really appreciated.

Stunning card! The gold is lovely and the red poppies really "pop" against the gold. The lacey die really shows off this card. Please take it easy and rest when you need to. There is no timeline to get better. It takes how long it takes! Hugs to you.
