This month’s Technique Lover’s Class (TLC) was Pergamano. In centuries previous, artists used to hand sketch an image on parchment paper before etching or piercing it. Today, we have the benefit of working with stamps to create our initial images. Here we used the Blended Bloom stamp, heat embossed on Vellum cardstock with white embossing powder. Then using the stylus from the Simply Scored Tool and a piercing mat we ‘etched’ in the flower petals on the reverse side. The process stretches the vellum and gives a life-like shape and a softer look to the stamped image. Once the etching was complete, we fussy cut the flower and adhered it to the card base using a glue dot in the center of the flower. To camouflage the glue dot on the front, we added a large pearl in the center. Another piece of vellum was dry embossed with the scallop from the Delicate Designs pack and once again adhered with glue dots which were concealed with pearls. The sentiment is from Blooming With Kindness and was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. This card was inspired by a similar one done by the talented Donna Centamore!
Heading off to the stamp room tomorrow to play with some of my new goodies from the Holiday Mini Catalog that I was able to bring home from Convention. My only problem will be what to work with first – everything in there is THAT good!
Ok – gotta head out and pick up my Hubby from the train station – It’s pouring rain here (at last!)
