Parchment Lilies

Morning, Hopefully you got to see the shows on Hochanda, where Michelle from MJM Design Studios launched her wonderful artwork on a triple set of CD Roms. The Lilies and Light CD collection has been produced by Crafters Companion and is packed to the rafters with goodies to use. When I saw this particular design, I knew it would lend itself perfectly to parchment.

To start with I traced the design onto parchment using my pen and white ink. If you want to print on to your parchment rather than trace, you can change the outline colour to grey and fade the outline image down to approximately 30%. Obviously a printer will not print the white for you. Personally I prefer to trace with white, directly from the image.

Next using my Groovi plate from Clarity I traced the frame part of the design. I also traced one of the sentiments from the disk using gold ink.

I started adding the white work embossing from the back of the parchment in stages building it up over time.

I then used polychromo pencils to colour, again from the reverse.

To finish I added my piece onto black matt card, then layered it onto a card base made from Centura Pearl 'Hint of Silver'

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you like this project and the step by step I have shared.  Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you have about this or any other piece.

I hope to see you again very soon, There's more to come. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx

    1. You're welcome Sam. If you want to print, fade the image out as I said int eh blog and test it on a piece of scrap copier paper first, better than finding it's too dark on the parchment. Once you do the whitework it will not be seen. Hope you will share.xx
