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

Stencils Oxides Inky Embossing + WOYWW

Hi everyone.
Glad to be sharing today's crafty desk at WOYWW over at Julia's Stamping Ground. 
For those of you who are regulars to this blog, and wondering what's been happening please read this Post over here on vale Mike in Oz.
A quick post because I've been crafting with a very dear friend.. how wonderful!!
 Using Oxides here blending on top layer of EF for gentle shading underneath then loads of smooshing ink on top as well for real dimensional pop!
Then below is a stencil with blending of Oxides for a wonderfully fun background.
 Loved this result .. stencils and inks all supplies are my friend Anne's..  so can't give details sorry!
Rubbing wax on triple embossed craft cardstock.
The oxides were great on gold cardstock here too!! More wet amd dry embossing.
Finished result certainly worth it! Used silver rubbing wax on dragonfly.
Finished Desk. The plain brown check were simple dry wet embossing combo. Inked up top side of folder and emboss really well with number of passes through cuttlebug to give more dimension.
Card made with Washi tape, peel offs and scored lines. China H.B. die is triple cut in red gold and top layer is washi, all slightly offset for a shadow effect.
A tranquil photo from springtime Oz today after an afternoon's walk. Note wattle flowers in foreground.
Thank you to all who pop over and say hi. 
You really do bless my heart. 
I pray God may bless yours, also. 
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz.x
A favourite verse in times of trouble but also good for every single day of our lives . 
A proverb to live by, for us all:

"The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe."
Proverbs 18:10

Lots of interesting pieces on your desk this week. Very much like the feathery embossed and inked backgrounds.

Betsy said...

Oh how beautiful Shaz. I love all of the cards you made this week. The feathery colors are just so pretty. I have lots of washi tape and I’m never sure how to use it. I need to go online and try to find some ideas. You have been in my prayers often my friend. I hope all is well with you.
Blessings,
Betsy

Are you here? Or there? I am so looking forward to next week when, hopefully, we meet up again. Still cannot believe it and have to pinch myself.
Love what you made with your friend - you have certainly used the Oxides in a different way and the results are beautiful.
Too excited to write more - see you soon my friend.
Love and Blessings, Neet 4 xxx

Conniecrafter said...

good to see you crafting again, such pretty cards, my favorite is the one with the dragonfly, I love the colors!

Dotty Jo x said...

Good to see you rocking the Oxides! Love the effect against the gold cardstock. I'm not really getting into Oxides, I don't seem to be able to get the effects that I see others achieving - more practice needed I think! Have a happy week, TFS, Jo x #36

Shoshi said...

Gorgeous projects, Shaz. I love what you've done with the Distress Oxides and the embossing folders. Fabulous colours too! That verse from Proverbs is one of my favourite verses, too. I used it in one of my little books (the mixed media one I did about a walk in the woods that we did with some Christian friends).

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #37

Di said...

Jo Ann said...

Beautiful cards. Thank you for joining us at Word Art Wednesday. I would like to share with you God's Word in John 8:12 which says, "When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” God's Word is timely and timeless. Have a blessed weekend!
