These became known as Anzacs and the pride they took in that name continues to this day.
May we always honour those who’ve fought to preserve our freedoms and be grateful for the blessing of every single one of those freedoms so many do not enjoy these!
Here is a quick post and a card for the CAS Stencil Challenge which closes in an hour!
This card was a labour of love, it so did not want to turn out!!
First of all the gold embossing paste was hard. When I bought the dreamweaver paste on eBay it arrived dented in a plastic container. The seller packed it badly for trip to Oz, so refunded it when I told her what happened...predictably it dried out before full use. I wasn’t giving up! so used Wendy Vecchi clear paste and some gold acrylic paint which looked a bright gold by itself, and even wen wet with paste ... however when dry it was ugh!
So now what? Tried covering a few media with no success over paste then thought of the Finetec watercolours in metallic (bought after seeing Cathy of Cathy’s card spot use them). YES! they painted beautifully over the paste, also used brown Tombow pen on the sunflower centre.
Sunflowers are seen all over French fields... like the poppy so think they’re very appropriate for Anzac Day, and needed spare sympathy card so that’s what it is. Good to remember these dear faithful ones this way too.
The sheet used on back of unamed stencil piece is alcohol play -see the post below or here.. Used also for Elizabeth craft designs With Sympathy die. Corners are from SB Marvellous Square Die.. trimmed off nice corners attached underneath
An Aussie photo we are enjoying stunning sunshine ... but not one taken recently, as I'm not well at all at mo.
Lord bless dear ones and thank you for reading this post and taking time to comment. You bless my heart. Prayers for you too.
