Thanks for popping in. Typing extra fast here, because I’m back on HOCHANDA.com telly at 3pm with those adorable Printed Parchment Poppets. Yep we knew you’d love them!
Got a bit tongue tied earlier, trying to explain that the front of these is like the back of our coloured parchment, and that you have to use the back as the front if you want to emboss patterns into coloured areas!! Hahahaha! Clear as mud, right? Maybe I’ll do a Youtube, because it is really effective!
Look! This is the front. She is printed on the front. There are white and very light areas in the printed image, so when you do whitework with ball tool from the back, it does come throught white. Very white where there is little or no printed colour
If you want to add patterns to more coloured areas, like the dress or clothes, you have to pretend that the front is the back, and emboss from the brighter, ink loaded front, so that the duller side becomes the front. Get it? We always emboss from the back, don’t we? So we have to make the ink saturated front the back – that’s it in a nutshell!
So to make flowers or patterns within her dress, you place the dull side down on the diagonal grid, and you use the No. 2 ball tool to make flowers or stripes over the dress.
Then, when you flip to the NEW front, they will come out perfectly white.
Fantastic birthday celebrations in progress. Thank you so much for liking what we do. Makes it all worth while.
Love and Hugs
