#30 - Pergamano Flowers

I had been fascinated with this form of art called Pergamano. Its simply amazing, beautiful and so much fun. This is my first Pergamano card and I really liked the way its come out.

For this card, I used 140gsm vellum sheet and traced the design with permanent black fine ink. The best option could be using Micron fine tip pens or even Sharpies are good. For coloring I used the Faber Castell Connecter pens and the Faber Castell Polychromous pencils of the same color shade.

For the flowers I started from the bottom of the petal, added a little color with pens and then used the waterbrush to create the light an shaded effect of the same color. Then turning the vellum, I embossed the petals starting from the top which has added the white effect on the petals.Finally, used the pencils to added a little darkness to the petals. Followed the same technique with the leaves.

I traced the chevron with the white pencils and turning the vellum stippled the entire chevron using a single needle tool.

Finally, the border, I traced it using the white pencil and embossed it using the ball embossing tool and using the 2-needle tool(Mini StampEdge) cut out the border.

I really hope everyone like this!!!

#29 - Quilled Flowers

I had come across this simple design of a 3 petal flower and wanted to re-create it with #Quilling. I have not added any sentiment on this card as I felt it could be used for any occasion.

I used the #Spellbinders - Romantic Rectangles die set to make the shaped card and added a few pearls on it.

Each petal in the flower is made of 7 individual quilled teardrop, all glued together.

Hope all like this.

I am entering this card for the IQCG#22 - Anything Goes and the IQCG DT Call 2016

# 28 - Quilled Christmas Card

I wanted to create a quilled card in red and green and thought of this very simple design.

I first quilled the flower with 3mm strips of red and golden and the leaves with 3mm strips of dark green and arranged them.
I diecut the cardstock using the spellbinders die on which I made the arrangement. Used the patterned paper from Kaisercraft Twig and Berry cardstock.
