Fussy and Fancy Challenge #206 Favourite Colours

Hello again, well I cannot believe how quickly the time is flying . Here we are in the middle of February already and time for another Fussy and Fancy Challenge hosted by the lovely talented Beth, she has chosen Favourite Colours as her theme. I do love a bit of pink especially against a bit of grey so here is my offering:

I have been trying to teach myself parchment craft using Clarity Groovi plates for a while now, I have always love the delicate results that can be achieved with this old craft but it takes so much patience using the traditional methods. With this new system the acrylic plates make it much easier. I started by tracing the outline for the centre circle and then coloured it in from the back, I gently cut slots for the ribbon and then pierced and snipped the first picot edged circle. Cut a second circle and mounted the two together.

I used a sheet of my precious patterned parchment from Clarity again called Shenandoah in my favourite pinks and grey. I embossed my sentiment and the corners and stuck my circles onto it. This is the groovi system at it's simplest some of the work that experienced parchers do is so wonderful and intricate , I can only dream.

Bye for now Annie
