Hope to make another batch of cards, since Christmas pile needs a boost. Saw this idea on last week’s Scrappy Mo challenge with brusho backgrounds so late night pulled out some biscuit packet with white backing and sprinkled, spritzed and splattered result nice bright backgrounds, two more subdued on left out of photo. Three masks are washed in cases waiting to go away showing them on next desk. Tiny white scribbled paper on top of right side stencils? Card ideas.
So here I using an idea I saw over at Sarah’s craft shed last week, not her WOYWW post but one before, I often wander around when doing WOYWW, only time being a sticky beak isn’t bad manners.😁 Sarah used Oxides, beautifully layered with masking for background. Added embossed gold images. I thought Christmas cards. Yes! wild tangent, but that’s me! Layered colours three blue DOxides, needed deep blue, tried regular DI chipped sapphire. Worked just fine. Mask colour was citron oxide, with three stencils.
NOTE TO SELF: don’t seal Oxides before heat Embossing. Seal Oxides with hairspray or micro distress glaze, to make colours pop. But one I accidentally did it before Stamping and embossed ugh! Powder everywhere shouldn’t be! Turned out kinda ok but lots of work.
Finished cards, set of 4, the stamps are Stampendous Glory to God wood moubt, bought with Marilyn in Florida last Sept, nativity stamp is quite old wood mount stamp. Used my stamp-ma-jig to position them. Not going to mess up after that!
Aussie photos are from today! I went to our botanic gardens with a friend, so nice. So sharing some of our amazing plants.
Next two photos are from family travelling in Victoria.. first is silo paintings on the silo art trail down there, amazing pencil-like black and white drawings. Next garden bed with some stocks in Gardens there in central Vic. They’ve not had severe drought of elsewhere so family enjoyed visit thus far.
Pray you’re all well, and thanks so much for popping over for a peek and chat. May God richly bless you wherever you maybe!
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz.x
Thought for Today:
These photos were taken this week, if you put a pin in the middle of NSW, you’d probably land near Gunnedah where these were taken.
I’m praying for Darryn & Michelle Phinn and their family at Carol, who’ve been living, breathing in this dust, parched landscape - day after day. That’s dust storm on horizon, with willy-willy in one of photos.
PRAY please for Darryn & Michelle, for relief with rain.
Praying also for Rappville , a small town three hours north west of us.
There were 30 homes lost last night in bushfire, nearly the whole town gone, including village hall. Incredibly it looks like it was deliberately lit. So sad.
Why do sad things happen? Jesus' answer to this question was this:
God sees what we cannot, "His way is perfect", and "He will perfect that which concerneth me", and you, as we seek Him.
Blessings, dear ones, I pray for you in your burdens.
“Our Heavenly Father knoweth.” “He careth for you”.
