One of the first things I did was to hunt out all my parchment craft tools and grids and started to have a play - oh boy am I rusty! But in the time since I last did any parching it has undergone a transformation with the advent of Barbara Gray's Groovi boards and grids - so of course I had to have a play with some of them too.
And I got plenty of practice cutting using the above pattern!
Then I actually made a couple of cards.
Remembering that some years ago when I was attending parchment craft workshops, our teacher brought in some designs printed onto parchment - I think they were from Pergamano - I decided to print out a design and use it in the same way - embossing the back of the design before adding it to a card. Anyone who knows me knows that I am really into digital crafting so this was a case of digital meets parchment.
The design I used for this, and also the background paper, is from MJM Design Studios. The background is actually two papers from the kit which I blended together. It is a digikit called "Lilies and Light" - though I chose the poppies, rather than the lilies, for this card.
I am still playing with parchment - though not exclusively as there are so many other things I want to try during my playtime!
