I am thrilled to be here today, ANZAC Day is a special day in Australia, it’s a day of remembrance of those that have fallen and been affected by war, but it is also about the friendships and bonds that develop.

Today we have a video hop with both Australian and New Zealand papercrafters, scroll down to find the full list of participants, the link to my video and also to find out how you can WIN!

I decided to colour some Poppy Gems from Penny Black today with a technique that I like to call ‘Messy’ Copic colouring (it kinda looks like watercolouring…  if you squint your eyes…)

  1. Absolutely exquisite, Therese! no need of squinting for me to see the water colored look – exactly as you describe as ‘messy’ Copic coloring! LOve the purples… off to watch… xx
    =]

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this new Messi Copic coloring! I’m a watercolor at heart but have some copics looking forward to see how they do!

  3. Thank you for sharing about ANZAC day in Australia. I love learning new things about other countries. And, yes, what IS it about the first pancake?!!!! Beautiful coloring. Might have to add that Penny Black stamp to my wish list! Off to meet some new card makers from down under!! Thank you, Therese!

  4. Therese, I don’t consider this “messy” coloring – it’s amazing! Those poppies are just beautiful – I’m going to give this color combo I try. Thanks for a chance to win.

  5. Loved learning about ANZAC day. It seems that most nations do have a day to honor their fallen. I love your poppies, it is a very pretty card.

  6. Your card is stunning ! I love your idea of “messy coloring”, it’s not messy at all to my point of view, it’s just gorgeous !!! Thank you for sharing your creativity.

  7. Love your card and I am glad you did the poppies on this special day of remembrance. I need to chill a bit with my blending and see how it looks too. Thanks for the tip.

  8. Such a beautiful card Therese – your style still comes up even in a ” busier” design – have a wonderful day xx

  9. Thanks Therese … always love listening to the Auzzie😀 have just watched your video on Anzac morning after the Dawn Service 🇦🇺🇳🇿 … very appropriate 👏🏻

  10. Beautiful card and the colors very appropriate for the Day of Remembrance. I follow your work always. Thank you for sharing it.

  11. Beautiful card Therese! I have the same stamp and have always colored it in reds and oranges. I will definitely try purple!

  12. Beautiful card….love the purple coloring for the poppies!!! The finished card is perfect…definitely not overworked!!! Guess we are our own worst critics!!!
    Thanks for the inspiration and the history lesson!
    Paper Hugs,
    Jan

  13. Thank you so much Therese, for your inspired thought to host this wonderful friendship hop, I have already found a wealth of local crafty folk to engage with and it is only just after 1000. Thanks also for the thought that Copics don’t need to be “perfick” to be wonderful! Dx

  14. Thanks Therese, beautiful card and wonderful to share on this day of remembrance for us, Australians and New Zealanders. Lest we forget.

  15. I really LOVE the effects of your messy Copic coloring, Therese! I think I’m going to try it!
    Thanks so much for another fabulous video!!!

  16. Love this card, the colors, the “messy” coloring with the comics. It makes them less intimidating. I am grateful to learn about Anzac day. I’ve read a number of books about the war which included mention of the Anzac troops and their bravery.

  17. Thank you so much for the effort you have put into creating a special crafting day to commemorate a special day in Australia and New Zealand’s history. You created a blog hop which was totally worth following through on, with a group of crafty people, most of whom I have not “met” before or did not realise belonged to this part of the world. Thank for a job well done and giving we “hoppers” an opportunity to enjoy such a diverse range of projects from a group of very talented ladies.

  18. Hi Therese, Love your sloppy colouring and those poppy are beautiful, and so is the card, love watching you create your cards, TFS, Lest we forget, Cheers Anna.

  19. I do love watching you color! So relaxing and delightful! (definitely NOT relaxing when I color with alcohol markers. Still a newbie…)

  20. I love this card Therese. The colors are beautiful and seem appropriate due to the reminder of how war affects people. Thank you for sharing this.

  21. Love the purple; it’s just as pretty as your first go around with greens and teal coloring of the Poppy Gems. I searched and purchased this stamp because of your first card. I’ll be recreating your cards soon. Thank you.

  22. This is another lovely card! Your card designs are always such an inspiration! If only my messy water colouring was as beautiful as yours😊

  23. Gorgeous card Therese…just starting the blog hop…I know I’m going to love it coz I know all the ladies in this hop are just fantastic..!!

  24. Therese, the purple poppies are stunning! I know this is not your typical card but I really like how you did it and changed it up! I did not think it was messy but I liked how the ‘messy’ grabbed my attention in the tag line-I thought I would learn a new technique and I totally did. As always, I enjoyed your video commentary!

  25. Purple poppies for Anzac Day…just perfect. The verterans in the march where I live brought a tear to my eyes yesterday…and you always put a smile on my face listening to your commentary!!! Lest We Forget…Hugs Ali xx (Western Australia)

  26. A stunner of a card Therese. Poppies are the one flower associated with war and I feel everyone needs at least one poppy set in their stash. So very important to remember…Lest we forget…

  27. It’s so much fun to watch you color and listen to your chatter, Therese. Those poppies are gorgeous and I may have to get that stamp. I have made several remembrance cards using red poppies.

  28. Another beautiful card for a very special occasion. Watched the Dawn Remembrance Services held in London and in France. Remembrance days always bring a tear to the eye and a lump to the throat at the misery and suffering endured by so many. The beauty and fragility of the poppy makes it the ideal symbol of remembrance and your card captures it perfectly. Thank you.

  29. Such an elegant card. Love both your choice of colours and your messy colouring.
    The card is so very special.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  30. So pretty! Just love watching you work! Your videos always hav3 such a calming effect for me! Thanks so much!

  31. Beautiful Card Therese I love watching you create thanks for sharing … Just wondering how you reshaped your katana I have a cheaper version and the wax tip broke off…

    1. Hi Linda, When my hubby was using the Katana the end had become very soft, squashed and the point was totally gone, so I simply just remolded it with my fingers. The wax seemed kind of ‘warm’ at the time and after it cooled it seemed to set again. I hope this makes sense, Kind crafty hugs, Therese

  33. Sorry I’m so late visiting, Therese … been MIA for a while with life stuff!! Beautiful poppies, the loose look is delicious … our purple poppies are coming into bud right now … and they’ll be just like these when they flower! As ever, it’s a joy to watch you create, especially so when you’re honouring the hero’s (in the widest sense) who guarded and maintained our freedoms (and continue so to do). Hugs, Anita 🙂

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
