Thanks for popping in
Thursday’s blog is always blue, right?
So here’s the one I did with lovely Tina the last time we worked together on the telly.
Using one of her wonderful Henna Stamps Set No. 2
on a piece of our new Designer parchment: the Rainbow River Collection.
The thing I LOVE about stamping on the designer parchment is you can apply all the parchy tricks we have mastered along the Groovi trail to your beautiful black lineart.
Stamp on the front of the parchment with black Archival,
and then work your parchy magic on the back!
You really don’t have to be an expert.
Get the Groovi Starter Kit, and you’re off and running!
You have the soft/hard mat and the tools to do your whitework.
If you can stretch to a couple of the basic grids as well, you can do that neat dot embossing too.
Anyway, here I have just stamped the Word Chain No.8 stamp Friendship into the middle of the Henna Frame.
I framed this piece with the scallop rectangle nested plate – a firm favourite among parchers. But the nested sqaure in the Starter Kit will do the job very nicely too.
So this is the sequence:
Stamp in the middle,
Build the Groovi frame,
Trim the parchment back leaving a largish border,
stamp some leafery into two opposing corners.
Once dry, do a little more whitework in the two opposing corners.
But so easy.
Stampers, you need this parchment!
Parchers, you need these stamps!
