More Parchment

Hello to you all

I am sharing some more Parchment, I have coloured a little on this and must say it was easier than

Fiskarettes Share

I am sharing a Pin Cusion today This was made for the Fiskarettes Facebook page. I actually saw this
on Pinterest some time ago and I am sorry but cannot find it now.

 1) Assemble a few bits together

2) Glue a piece of fabric around the pot with  and attach a bow and button. 
Push some pillow stuffinginto the toe end of an old clean tight and tie the end. 

3)Using the Circle Fabric Cutter cut a piece of fabric twice the diameter of the pot .
 I cut a 5inch circle as my pot was 2.5inches. Now just tack a small hem all round and draw up the cotton so it fits around 
the stuffing and pack it into the pot.

Quite a useful item

the parchment paper to my card.
The Parchment has been left wide enough to wrap around the card and the stitched in the fold. I also kept the corners down with strips of

Thursdays Parchment

Hello to you all, I am sharing a card using some more Parchment.. 

I have used a Unity Stamp from the KOM Jan 2015 for the image. I just stamped this onto some card and traced this onto some parchment with a white pencil.....Then I embossed the image with a ball tool.
The papers I have used were from one of the  really cheap pads I bought from The Works some weeks ago, they are fabulous papers..   I attached my Parchment to a Diecut card.

My Parchment Journey

Hello to you all

Well here I am as promised with some more Parchment craft....I have used A clarity Groovi plate for this... I loved using it...
The process is made so much easier with the Groovi Plate, don't get me wrong you still need to do shading and snipping and other Parchment techniques and those I am still learning.

Anyway I hope you like

I decided 2017 would be the year I taught myself a new craft....I have been toying with the idea of Parchment craft for a while now,  so armed with a few tools of the trade I have started my Parching Journey...........
After much practise and torn papers I found I was happy enough to share this piece..

I have just treated myself to the Groovi system by Clarity Stamps.. I did think it was cheating at first but feel it can be incorporated with the real craft.....So watch this space, I will let you know
how I get on with it when I receive
