Flourishes....Timeless Tuesday #31
It's been so busy around here I haven't had too much time to join in on my favorite challenges. I was able to grab a few hours yesterday to make a card for Flourishes, Timeless Tuesday challenge. The theme this week is no colouring, so I decided to make a Pergamano card.
The image I have used is from the set Sweet Violets.
I stamped the image with Stazon black onto a piece of photo copy paper to use as my pattern. I used ordinary parchment paper for the card. I taped down the parchment to the pattern and traced it with my Pergamano white ink pen. I don't think the effect of the ink is as great with the pen, I actually prefer to use my mapping pen and bottle of white Tinta ink. After it was all traced I embossed all the flowers, leaves and stems. I used a stippling effect with a 1 needle tool for the centers and hull of the flowers. I used my regular grid to add the embossed dots around the edges. The edges of the card are pierced with a 3 needle tool and then snipped with my handy little Pergamano scissors. I embossed a little butterfly and cut it out and layered it. I also added a tiny bit of stickles to the flower centers and leaves. I used a piece of rainbow parchment for the inside card.
I have added a pic for you to see the tools I used to make this card. There are lots of other tools, these are just a few.
It is so hard to get a decent picture of my Pergamano cards, too much light against the parchment paper, they do look a lot nicer in RL. If you click on the pic you will see it much better. I hope you like it.
I also want to share with you the card we are doing in class this month. It is done using a few different tools, angle and hockey stick. This is from a Pergamano book of patterns.The inside card is red vellum.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Have a great day....
