Download from Mettemusen


I love these Sarah Kay figures and they are ideal, as sketch type prints, to print on to parchment and emboss and colour. You have to choose how to interpret the drawing so there is more work than just printing off a 'ready' image. This time I have used my Faber Castell pencils to colour from the back. The border is one I have adapted a little from a parchment pattern Cd by Florence Holmes called Say it with Flowers and Lace. A great Cd for a parcher to dip into.
The sentiment was embossed using a Pergamano Alphabet grid (No:16) that I bought from The Art of Craft - my local Aladdins Cave.

  1. I admire your parchment work, Carol! I would not even know where to start with it. Your card is very pretty. x
