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 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Joseph Coat of Many Colours Technique, Mo’s Christmas + NBUS + WOYWW

 Well, everyone, this is actually my first crafty blog post for 2021! Have been blogging, but over on my Christian blog - here. Been making cards, too, but tis summer here, and either had visitors or visiting family, so limited time. We’re blessed re Covid, at a cost though, as our borders are closed. The international tennis players visiting for the Aust Open were not happy at our strict fortnight of hotel quarantine for all who do get to fly in. Since it is Wednesday and WOYWW, this is my desk for What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday (pop over to Julia’s do.. learn lots!).

I’m working a new technique called Joseph’s coat of many colours.. (or more usually Coat of many Colours, but as we know it’s really referring to Joseph’s coat! I’m just reading through there in Genesis, actually as I read the Bible through each year). Saw it in Gina K video hereExcept I cheated, I’ve painted my background in watercolours, way quicker than inking and these ones I’ve layered the colours several times, and spritzed and smooched. Smooch it in coloured layers on side of mat to spread the colours around. Let dry overnight and flatten well under heavy book before stamping silhouette stamps on them. This one is an old Disc Elusive Images UK set -  Scottish thistle, the fern stamp below on ink resist card is from the same set. Desky share above is inked in with top layer in DI Chipped Sapphire.
This desk is pre-inking with just clear embossing over painted background. Here are my cards I’ve made.
First of all my Christmas card for Scrappy Mos Christmas card Challenge.. see over here. I have used WOW Platinum EP on the deep embossing on this EF by 3D Gemini embossing folder of “Hark the Herald angels sing” so multiple embossed it for extra pop. The verse stamped on vellum is Our Daily Bread, one below is up close... the die is a CCD, and has a double layer of vellum behind it. I heat embossed cardstock die in platinum EP. The die is a NBUS entry for challenge (Never Before Used Schtuff, so over to Darnell’s challenge here, special prayers for D’s broken back to heal).
Now here are some cards in Joseph coat of Many Colours technique.
Two male cards, my 2nd NBUS - a penguin Stamp set is from ShazSilverwolf (THANK YOU) by Krazelkraft (145) and 3D EF by Spellbinders Celtic Weave, on first card the corners are cut up of diecut from SB Magnificent Squares in navy scraps 
The aged look (Tarnished Foil) on the Gold foil card is another new technique I tried.
To be honest it’s hardly noticeable in photo, but more in real life. 
Last card in this technique is for my friend, another birthday. I’ve seven birthdays in February, my friend loves purple and butterflies .. a Stampendous stamp set.
This bible verse of Isaiah 12:2 is by ODB too. Dies are CCD (border) or Scrapdragon (rectangle frames). Also linking this card to Mrs A’s Butterfly Challenge, as lots of butterflies + Geranium = Bright pink! 
The very last card ink resist is on its way to Japan, a good month early (almost), so hopefully in time. The verse “Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and He shall sustain thee.” is a set I bought on eBay, think it’s called Biblical Impressions, might be wrong though, as hunted and can’t find it, was a red rubber sheet of verses. All KJV so I loved them. 

Aussie Shots - now firstly is my darling dad's painting at my sister’s, hadn't seen it for ages..

 It's near where he lived out west, painted of Lake Keepit. Now some photos + video of beach walk at sister's.
Then some photos below of boardriders..
Also a 30 sec. video taken when just north of here in New year. Seascapes galore! And yes, I’ve had some great swims too. 
😀 very blessed!

Well, that’s it for today. Praying much for all in USA, UK, France + many other countries to be kept safe and that God to watch over all whom you love.

Thanks so VERY MUCH for popping over and saying hi.
Prayer hugs,
Shaz in Oz.x 
Thought for the day:
No matter come what may, if God is our Saviour, we need not fear!
We need to trust, rest... as simply as a little child, with childlike faith as Jesus said, trusting simply in Him.
Jesus said: ".. except ye be converted, and become as  as little children, ye cannot enter the kingdom of God." Matt. 15:3
Although we may not know what the future holds, we do know WHO holds the future, safe caring Hands. In God we trust.. and rest in Him.
