Parchment Challenge for Crafty Cardmakers


I have never done parchment craft before I mentioned to my friend I was wanting to try it and she loaned me a parchment grid. This is a metal plate with embossing sections and piercing sections. I took it to my craft group and mentioned I wanted to have a go and the lady sat next to me was able to give me some guidance on how to get the best from the template. I found it very therapeutic and when I was finished was so pleased with the results


When I was using the paint fusion stamps I thought how nice the daisy might look in parchment, so I stamped on some parchment, embossed the lines, cut it out and mounted it directly to a card for a different look with parchment.

These are brilliant. Love the grid one (I've got one or two pre-patterned grids) and the daisy one is fabulous. xx

Two gorgeous creations here Tracy. Love what you did with the paint fusion daisy, but that first one. Boy did you ever get to grips with that grid quickly because your finished creation is just stunning.
