Thanks for joining me.
I do hope you were able to join Tina and myself this afternoon too.
What a delightful collaborative new ii-Book!
I will blog what she and I did together later on this week.
But today, I am excited to look at the
Shenandoah Parchment and Paper Duet which we launched at 6pm.
Well, I am so glad and grateful you appreciated the products and the pricepoint! Thank you for shopping with us and investing in us once again. If you didn’t, we wouldn’t last long !!!
So here is a very simple autumnal take on Mel’s finches.
Also available in Groovi
The other designs showcased are the beautiful
and also in Groovi
Stamp on the front of the parchment using Black Archival.
Flip to the back and erase some of the darker colours from the parchment with a pencil eraser.
Do a little embossing, working on a soft surface,
and using various embossing tools.
We have a great selection of Pergamano tools.
This set might be a good starting place:
Colour in from behind too, but on a hard surface.
I used everything in the cupboard!
Perga Colours, Perga Liners and Distress Markers.
NB. The white work will always override the colourwork.
Build the whitework up gradually, letting the parchment cool off and rest between session.
Add vibrance by adding colour on the front too.
Perga Colours work a treat for this because of the super fine nib.
Mount on white to bring out the colours in the parchment.
And stamping on the white background gives a lovely subtle effect.
Up a bit, down a bit…
The main point I was trying to convey on telly this evening was that parchment itself is a brilliant medium for stampers as well as parchers. That’s why we bundled the designer parchment together with its corresponding paper. It is such a malleable surface to work with, and it’s translucency is very, very effective. If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re in for a real treat .
Back on at 8pm!
Love & Hugs,
