Another Parchment Card

I am having so much fun with my parchment starter kit!  I don’t know why I didn’t take this up years ago.  This afternoon, I moved on to lesson four, which involved dorsing (coloring) some flowers.  I also found my fine-point embossing tool, which really helped with the fine lines on the butterfly.


I didn’t color the flowers quite dark enough and I got a little carried away with the embossing on them, so the color doesn’t show through as well as it should, but overall, I’m pretty pleased with the results.

I’m loving the 3-d effect of embossing on parchment.  You can’t see it from the scan, but the flowers and butterfly really stand out from the paper.
