Parchment card..

Hi everyone!
Today I have a card to share I made using Pergamano pattern and products.
I spent a couple of hours with some crafty friends at Wear Crafts, I forgot to take an embossing tool so I improvised and used the end of a paint brush lol!
I love parchment but never feel very happy with what I make! I could never get away with the cutting. I recently bought some Pergamano snips and I can't believe what a difference they are so easy to use. I coloured the back of the pattern with SN pencils and added some pearls.

Berry Shades...

Hi everyone I have been having a play for the Less is more colour challenge.
It's to use Berry Shades.
I used some glossy card.
I stamped the Honey Doo butterfly with Staz On. I also added some white wax crayon to create some resist. Then I used a couple of Brilliance ink pads Rocket Red and Pearlescent crimson to add some berry shading across the card.
Sentiment is from a free set I got with a magazine recently.
I matted this onto a deep red card.
