Groovi Parchment

Hi all

This weeks posts is my first attempt at parchment craft using  the Clarity Groovi system

I teamed the parchment with Sue Wilson's Noble range of dies and the flowers are from SW Camellia sets
I must admit I did make a mistake on a couple of pieces of parchment.  As you work on the reverse, and everything is backwards I did emboss a q instead of a p so instead of  binning it (i'm too tight through anything away!!) I  ran it through my Grand Calibur with CE star swirls embossing folder and it became my background. I was rather please with the result

I  used the Groovi  butterfly wreath which shows  my first ever attempt at this craft. I then decided to have a play with the white embossing and colouring. It's not good enough to create anything with. But I will definitely keep it to refer to.

Thanks for popping by, it would be wonderful if you had time to leave a comment.

    Crikey, I get confused working right ways round, nevermind back to front lol!
    Splendid looking card and quite dramatic with the black and red. Your wreath looks great too.
