My first piece of parchment is a design I make up myself. I needed to make a tri-fold card for a swap so inspired by the beautiful summer weather (!!!) we have been having I drew umbrellas on each section of the card. I coloured behind each one with Whispers Pens and then added a different gridwork pattern to them using both straight and diagonal grids. Raindrops were added under theumbrellas. Along the bottom of the card I added a row of flowers using a Siesta Grid (SPL016L).
I enjoyed making one of my favourite book mark designs, although I altered the design slightly by making it rectangular instead of cutting out around the flowers. It's from the Pergamano Parchment Craft book by Martha Ospina. I traced it in gold for the borders and white pencil for the remainder. Then it was coloured on the reverse with Whispers Pens, gently spread with a damp paintbrush. After the embossing the gridwork was done on a large straight grid.
