Some Groovi parchment

Our Parchment Lesson in February was based on a Groovi plate instead of using a traditional parchment pattern.

The Groovi plate we used was one designed by Tina Cox and it is called Tina's Henna Corners 2. These patterns are based on Indian henna designs from Tina's background. They are beautiful and I prefer them to many of the other Groovi designs.

Marilyn (tutor) designed several cards using many of the patterns from the plate and this is the one I chose:
I chose the same colouring that Marilyn had chosen as this colour range is one of my own favourites.
The colouring on the parchment was done with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.

At the class I studied a small Groovi book showing at least 20 designs using this plate and one other.  I purchased it and hope to use some of the suggestions in some Christmas cards this year.



  1. Beautiful love the colours, I have not tried a groovi board yet, there seems so much to get to use one, I certainly think that’s one of the best Groovi boards I have seen. I look forward to seeing more card using this board.

  2. Beautiful card Carol, I've just fallen in love with the Groovi and posted my first card made on my blog this week. I have a long long way to go though.
