Today has been a mixed day weather-wise. Wind, rain, sunshine and rainbows. So I have spent all day inside, sorting out, tidying up, having an afternoon nap and doing some prep for my TV shows on the 28th at 8am & 12pm (yes, I know I am a tease!)
Today I thought I would share a step-by-step with you of a card that I showcased on Hochanda last Saturday during the 2pm show
It was made using the following plates, the Groovi version of Barbara’s Chinese Lantern stamp & stencil set Did you know that if you trace out the dragonflies and then swap out the plates, you can add in the stems to create a bouquet of dragonflies – very clever.
I always loved the Special Day Sentiments when they were stamps and I knew that they would be perfect for Groovi
This is where the Light Wave Panel really comes into play with the darker tones of parchment (just added to the Half Price Club Members Sale!)
The line art stands out more on the black card, but the colour of the parchment stands out more on the white card
We recently showcased the Pergamano 2 Needle Tool on the Pergamano Show and the difference between the Fine and the Bold. I have always tended to go with the bold as it makes bigger holes which makes it easier to Picot cut. However, when you have a delicate design like the dragonfly wings, the bold would be too big.
Place a tumble dryer sheet under your parchment when perforating as it lubricates the needles each time you perforate.
I have used the Ringlock Scissors to Picot cut.
As Barbara always says, when you get on the Groovi Train/Bus, you can get off at whatever stop you want to.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s little step-by-step. Once we get set up in the new offices and things have settled down a bit, we will be bringing you a lot more You Tube step-by-step projects. We are going to have cameras installed in the new TV prep area which means that we will be able to film our projects as we create them.
