Thanks for popping in. And thanks for watching Tina’s Pergamano shows if you did, and thanks for your custom, if you decided what we had on offer was for you xxx
Tina did a wonderful job as always, and here is a step by step which I blogged a while ago now, when these clever snowflake duet plates first appeared. I absolutely loved this idea of making baubles out of the snowflakes!
My idea? Nope. Inspired by lovely Linda Williams.
On black parchment, emboss the two outer squares of the Nested Squares.
On the front of the parchment and using the Nested circles, trace 3 circles with a white pencil. Remember our lifetime supply of white pencils? I used the 6th, 5th and 4th from the centre. TOP TIP: Use the plate Groovi side down, so the surface is smooth.
Use a ruler to draw in the straight dangle lines.
Working from behind and using a lightwave, fill the baubles with the snowflakes. Stay within the circles. Fill the circles well, to create the illusion of a circle when the white lines are rubbed out. Perforate first from the front. Then add the outline from behind.
You will find the little hangers on one of the snowflakes.
Time to rub out the white lines.
Perforate round the outside edge with a 2-needle bold tool and a straight grid underneath.
Yeah yeah yeah!! NOT !!! Not anymore kiddo! We have invented the GROOVI PICOT DIES!!!! No need to spend hours going round the outside ! Save the custom cutting for the inside designs, that’s what I say!!
The Duets – the Groovi and Grid Snowflake have been a huge hit. I think they are actually an epic breakthrough in parchment art.
