Pergamano ornaments

Good morning everyone.
I can't believe it is Thursday already. I hope you are all having a good week so far. Mine has been very busy as I have been preparing my Pregamano ornaments for a class this Saturday. I love doing Pergamano....it takes a lot of time, but the end result is usually very rewarding.




These are 2 of the ornaments from a set of 4. They are done in two separate pieces and the they are pierced up the middle and fitted into each other for the 3D effect. The nice thing about these is that you can emboss and pierce them any way you want. With so many new piercing tools, the possibilities are endless. On the angel I used my regular grid and pierced the holes in her dress and then cut between the holes with my tiny pregamano scissors.
On the snowflake I embossed some areas and then used my diagonal grid to pierce the holes.
If you click on each pic you will get a better look at the piercing designs.




I hope you like them
Have a great day!

Karen

I'm new to the world of crafting so most of my days are spent surfing ( the web..not the waves ).My daughter and sister both are loyal scrappers and have begged me for yrs to join the fun. I happened upon your blog I believe last week with the snow flake/pergamano technique. I have never heard of this so I tell my daughter check this out, it's the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I am determined to learn the technique. I always have to be different and I do love a challenge. lol...it may take me yrs. but that's ok.
