Cherish, Clarity Groovi Plates

Afternoon, hope you are having a crafty day!

Finishing off some projects this afternoon, I’ve got quite a few parchment projects to complete.

This is one I completed today, I was brave and attempted picot edges!! I’ve still got to practice and this is by no means perfect but unless I practice the technique I’m not going to improve. I think I’ve figured out a few of my issues with the technique, I was putting the scissors into too far, I was trying to cut rather than snip and I was twisting the scissors rather than rolling them plus my piercing was not as neat as it should be.

Once I’d completed my design on the Groovi system, I used a variety of plates and borders, I did a little white work and coloured with Promarkers. I also repeated some of the designs on another piece of parchment so I could decoupage up elements. I’m not sure if you can see in the photo but I decoupaged up the large flower and the smaller leaves. 

I matted the parchment onto green card stock, using white brads to secure, and mounted onto the card blank with 3D foam pads. I decoupaged up the flowers and leaves with Pinflair 3D glue gel and used liquid pearls on the centre of the flowers.

Afternoon, hope you’re all well. 

Sharing a Groovi make today, I used elements from the Funki Henna border plate to create the focal point of the card. Rather than using my Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor pencils, I though I try out my Promarker pens on the parchment. I created the focal panel and did three individual flowers and after colouring I cut them out and used Pinflair 3D glue gel to add to the panel, embellishing with a few die cut leaves & flourishes. I stamped the ‘Thank You’ using an Archival ink pad and a sentiment from a Clearly Besotted stamp set. I matted the parchment panel onto some pink cardstock using some white brads.

Tattered Lace & Tatty Twinkles

 

Well I had a wonderful weekend at the Summer Crafting show in Doncaster, spent a small fortune and great time meeting up with fellow crafty addicts.

I decided that my craft room need re-organising when trying to put my buys from Summer Crafting away, seemed like a good idea at the time!!! I’m getting there but it’s going to take longer than I thought lol

Time to share some of my recent makes using some of the new Tattered Lace Dies and Tatty Twinkle stamps, you can see the lovely Lizzy Curtis demoing the stamps and dies at 1pm on Create and Craft today, 17th July.
