Many weeks ago I signed up for a weekly challenge with one of my Yahoo stamping groups. Of course, I was supposed to send this card out the first week of December! Yikes, poor lady has probably given up all hope! So here’s my card finally.
Pergamano is a very old technique where you stamp with white ink and dry emboss the parchment (vellum) cardstock and use a tool to poke holes into the paper. I believe this is a technique that I’ll feature in my April Technique, Tools and Folds camp. Fun but a bit time consuming. I was fairly happy with the card except the coloring of my tulips. But after poking holes and experimenting for an hour and a half, I wasn’t going to quibble or stress about some tulips stems! I had to cross that baby off my to-do list!
- Stamps: Perennial Friendship
- CS: So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Vellum CS
- Inks: White Craft
- Misc: Grosgain, and Crafter’s Tool Kit.
Here’s another Tulip card. The inspiration for this one was from the Fall Mini Catalog. There was a Halloween card that I liked the layout and so I drastically changed the stamps, colors and theme and came up with a nice new card. Never never toss those minis, use them for inspiration!
