I've been making more parchment things this week as I have been out and about and parchment is something I can take with me. First up is a card I made for my Mother-in-Law who has just had a big op.
The pattern for the Blue Tit came from Parchment Craft Magazine April 2010 and is by Lauren Berry. I coloured the little bird with my Derwent Studio pencils, then mounted it on blue card, adding peel-offs round the edge and decorative corners. The background paper is from Create and Craft.
Next I made a bookmark for my Daughter-in-Law.
This pattern was from the Pergamano Parchment Craft book by Martha Ospina. I traced the pattern using a Pilot Gold Gel pen and Tinta Pearl White ink. Then I added colour by putting dots of felt pen where I wanted it darkest and spreading it with a damp brush. The gridwork was done on both a large and small straight grid and embossing was added to the flowers and borders. Finally it was mounted onto some pastel rainbow parchment which I had cut with decorative scissors.
