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

Foiled - Alcohol Inks + Embossed Foil + WOYWW

 Yes, it’s Wednesday again and popping in with a desky share + cards made of late! Desky share for WOYWW - What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday, over HERE 😁 at Julia's … today is full of inky fun.

My desk this morning - just briefly played with Alcohol Inks on dry embossed silver foiled card (Sizzx chevron 3D)... oh so much fun and came up quickly too, worked out a easy 
technique on it. You don't need the blower this way ...

Lay around colours in locations of choice, put in centre if too bottom half two careful dollops of alcohol.

And then move it by tilting or tipping it around, and an occasional use of a gloved finger to spread it over how you like it. Easy peasy.
These days, make sure I wear gloves, apron and cover desk with scrap paper, for easy clean up.
Here’s some cards to share not done these bases up but here is one from last week, mailed yesterday.
Die by Penny Black - kind gift when I had my heart attack in June 20, from Scrappy Mo - so thank you Mo my new favourite Snippetty die ❤️❤️ you can use a skerrick strip up with it! Less than an inch roughly. The Dienamics rectangle, and Elizabeth Craft design Birthday die.
A quick CAS card of washi paper, scallop border, with disc. stamp, new fav. PB die.
Also was reminded its Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Day Christmas card challenge so quick entry, had these two elements done in Christmas box. Stampendous embossed greeting. EF 3D of carol think is Gemini brand ..
Baby card:
Image from book Beatrix Potter images. SB lattice die, large was used with DP mount, Crafts Too Daisy Lattice EF A4 with pink pearl dits to decorate.
 Celebrate die - Waffle Flower. “It’s a girl!” stamp, PB Hedgie baby set, with baby stats in Kaisercraft labels die.
An Aussie combo shot to end some pretty sunsets.

Lord bless everyone thanks so much for popping over esp if you say hi. 
I will do my very best to reciprocate, but sadly cannot comment on embedded comment boxes they block me on iPad.
Prayer hugs, 
Shaz in Oz.Xxx 

Psalm 27:3,5,7-8
 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. 

Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. 
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
The LORD is a constant companion to those Who love Him, and yet He is never far away from a seeking heart too that has not yet trusted in Him.
Our Saviour Jesus, our God is only ever a prayer away - but He made us with a free Will to chose Him, or not. 
Praying for you dear ones, you’re all so very precious to Him.

Another lovely idea from the desk of Shaz with Alcohol Inks used to perfection. You have, as always, some beautiful cards on display. Just love that Beatrix Potter image, I was reading about her the other day when we were up at the caravan, think we need to pay a visit to her house some time this year.
Hope all is well with you my friend, healthwise. Thank you for the beautiful Oz photos and short video.
God Bless, Neet 6 xx

Hi Shaz, sorry to hear you're not well, hope things improve for you soon :). Your foiled embossed AI card is a stunner, such a cool way to get the effect too, TFS. Your other cards are lovely too, the PB die looks so versatile and I too love the Beatrix Potter image, makes a gorgeous baby card. Take care, Cathy xx

Julia Dunnit said...

Lovely cards as usual Shaz, that’s about the only technique I use with AI now, because it uses up metallic card that I wouldn’t otherwise, and of course, I don’t very often use the inks either, but you’ve given me an idea and I thank you v much for that, will report in if it actually comes to something! Lovely video of the surf and beach, when you have got the strength to wal there, I’m sure you find it most uplifting. You aren’t alone with embedded comment problems, Sylvia too is having them. I work on an iPad (as you prolly know, because I do moan about it!), but so far haven’t experienced any probs. Will ask my guru, obviously a child. Take care of yourself, lovely to see you!

Sorry to Lyn aka Spyder. My fat fingers on mobile accidentally deleted the following comment.πŸ˜•πŸ˜΅

Spyder has left a new comment on your post 'Foiled - Alcohol Inks + Embossed Foil + WOYWW ':

ohooo that does look like fun and such bright shiny colours! Love Beatrix Potter images and that frame you've added it just perfect! Stay safe!
Happy late WOYWW!?

R's Rue said...

So beautiful. I love it. Thank you for sharing the Bible verses. I need them. Have a lovely day my friend.

Crafty in the Med said...

Love the variety of cards Shaz you do have an eye for colour and design!😊. I enjoyed watching your video clip. It certainly looks very peaceful ad enjoyable that walk by the seashore. How lucky you are to live in such a beautiful area. Hope you are feeling better now. Take care. Amanda x

scrappymo! said...

Glad to see you were able to use the die. Your cards all look so pretty. The Rudolph entry looks wonderful with that metallic glimmer over the embossing!

Thanks for taking part in the April Rudolph Days Challenge!

Hope you are keeping well. Al is struggling a bit and getting worn out with all the setbacks to his recovery. He is having his meds adjusted to varying doses and varying times of day to try to relieve the exhaustion/dizzy feeling. It will take time, but hopefully, they will get it sorted...
