Here is my creation:
I decided to bring out the parchment and create a card using Stacey's parchment techniques. You can see her videos HERE as well as some samples that she has created. I stamped "Rosy Heart" onto vellum using White dye ink and I heat embossed it using the Fantasy White fine detail embossing powder. You should see the sparkle that this embossing powder leaves. I then used my etching/embossing mat and my soft grip stylus tools to do some etching on the back side of my vellum. I also did a bit of etching on the roses, not sure if you can see it or not, it gives the roses a little bit of definition. I used my PITT India Ink Artist Pens on the back side of my vellum to color in the roses. I used the 4 split perforating tool to go around my final design to cut it out. Just don't look too closely at my perforating, I still have to work on it to get it to look the way I want it to. Right now it is still a bit choppy.... When I was assembling my card, I thought it needed some type of border on it, so I used the Cheery Lynn Anastasia Border die with purple and also with yellow card stock. I layered the purple on top of the yellow border and then added some pearls to dress it up a bit. And of course I added a small bow with a pearl brad in the center. Whew....
Here's a closer look at my Rosy Heart:
That was a lot of Sweet Stamps items that I used today. Check out the store, Stacey carries all the supplies/items you need to do the parchment craft. Hope you will give it a try and please share with us when you do. It is a fun technique and I hope to be doing a lot more of the parchment craft.
Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you. And please join in on the fun!
