Well, how are you all going? praying for you all, wisdom, grace for all of us! To keep on keeping on!
YES!!! tis Wednesday, so it’s time to pop over to deskland for WOYWW or What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday at Julia’s Stamping Ground!
About 20 mins work, it was in my head for few days, since saw B.’s blog post here, see the second card on her post was my inspiration, although mine is quite different, B's was gelli pad background she said. The stamp set on the right is by Woodware, it’s such a beautiful stamp. Mask to the left was made was made with scrap card.
1. Cut out of scrap cardstock (mine cereal packet) with circle die a round mask a bit smaller than chosen stamp.
2. Through circle blend with DI Oxides in graduated colours using makeup brushes.
3. Leaving mask on.
Chose a stencil , mine is “Small Mesh” by Darkroom Door.
4. Spritz stencil well on back of one side with water.
4. Laid water spritzed side down over the inked masked background for about 10- 20 secs & lift it off. Mine was a fine stencil so pressed it gently down too as wasn't quite flat in places.
It left a beautiful oxidised imprint.
Allow to dry then remove circle mask like below.
Stamped Woodware floral stamp on finished card with Onyx Black Versafine, and added clear embossing powder to heat set.
It’s really wonderfully glossy black stamping, this kind of captured it.
here!!! Yay! Thanks, Darnell!
Now to Aussie shots - lots today to cheer folks up!
So many moods in seascapes, our beaches are still open for exercising!
No sunbaking, though.
Some sunshine and some clouds, some down here at local beach and some at Jetty after going to post office to post snail mail!
|All taken on my walks each day this week. Some surferboard riders behind those windswept waves! Shark food was my thought!|
I was pleased that managed to comment nearly everyone last week. Finding commenting hard as do mostly on mobile phone, iPad now uncooperative with blogger. Rarely use computer as it’s really ancient. Here in Oz is like everywhere, except we are allowed to do essentials like shopping, medical appt and daily exercise.
Our deaths have more than doubled since a week ago, from 21 to 48.
For those who think that’s not many, we are large country in area, as big as USA, but population of only 25 million. Our local town has gone from 8 last week to 13 cases. Controls are pretty strict in some ways and not in others.
I’m actually in part enjoying it, and definitely not ever bored. But really miss my family. Was supposed to be on holidays now too, like lots of folks.
(Edit: Praying a special prayer of blessing for Lynn of One I Made Earlier, a fellow WOYWWer. She just emailed her aunt Gladys' funeral is to be held Thurs. 11.50am their time, 6 in attendance, sadly Lynn's mum, can't go. Praying for all in such case to seek the blessing of the God of all Comfort in the midst of grief).
Hope pray you’re all well, thanks so much for popping over, especially if you stop to chat!
Lord bless you all, praying for you all that the Lord would watch over you and keep you and your dear ones safe, ..” we have no might neither know we what to do, but our eyes are upon Thee.”
Thank you Lord Jesus.
