Parchment card with Gerbera and spiral leaf

 Playing with parchment......with a Stamp from Designs by Ryn

          I cut my parchment with a Spellbinders die first and then I stamped the images onto a piece of card and then on the right side of the parchment outlined the flower and foliage with a white pen. Worked from the wrong side using colouring and parchment tools to create my piece. I made a card from a Tonic Layering die which has a really small "deckle". In the oval set of 14 dies alternate die are plain. I used the next size down from the white to cut the plain oval. Think it all works well together..............

All are my favourites this time from the Workshop  .
The thistle stamp was super and the card was based on a
spritz and flick technique from Tim Holtz.  Find further details on his site
but I think it may have been posted on YouTube.

used a mask for the background and then stamped the leaf trail in green and the flowers in squeezed lemonade from the Distress Ink range. A pearl in the centre of each flower. What a pretty set from Lavinia and I thought quite appropriate for a Spring theme
