Parchment and Rubber Stamps

The Sweet Stamps Blog is challenging us to use Parchment paper and rubber stamps.  So I thought I would give it a try.  I’ve done two of them. One to fit the challenge, and then I thought I would try one with just embossing and white ink. 

Thank You

I’ve used a stamp and sentiment I got free with a magazine.  I used clear ink and then embossed it with bronze embossing powder.  I colored the image with markers.  I didn’t want to see the tape behind the parchment (vellum) so I attached it with bronze brads.  I made the butterfly with a Martha Stewart punch. 

Here is the second card I made with just embossing.

Parchment Birthday

I like this look, but I could use a little more practice, and of course, it’s still good to try something different.  The butterfly is also a Martha Stewart punch.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a crafty day!
