Today I'd like to share a parchment card I made for my Sisters Birthday. I decided to create my design using the Groovi System from Clarity. A couple of the plates were launched when Hochanda visited Alexandra Palace.
To create this design I used four of the Groovi plates Ornate Boxes, Trellis, Geisha and the Waterhouse plates. I started by working out where the Geisha needed to be, I completed her to the waist and added the parasol. Then I added the grasses below before adding the remainder of her dress.
Then I added the waterhouse as the focal point and the grasses on the right side. I then added the inner part of my frame using the larges box from the ornate boxes plate. This then allowed me to add the branches,blossoms, leaves and grasses within this frame. I added the same box to create the outer frame, I simply moved it along and matched up to enlarge it. Then taking the trellis plate I filled the space in between.
Before adding the colour, I decided where I wanted to add my whitework, I added all of this before adding any colour. On the trellis, I used black where the lines went underneath each other to give it more of a 3D look. I added all of the colour on the reverse of the parchment apart from the roof struts as I wanted these to be a lot blacker, so coloured at the front.
Thank you ever so much for visiting my blog again today. I hope you are all still enjoying the things I am sharing. Thank you also for your comments, I really do value these and love to read them. xxx
