Parchment and Piercing

Good morning all!
   As all of you know by now, I am  purging (trying to!) my craft space. I found this kit that had been purchased several years ago from Paper Wishes. It contained some parchment paper and patterns for dry embossing. Use it or lose it, so I made two of the three cards in the kit. I also did a bit of piercing and used pearlescent watercolors to add a some color. I do like this technique, and prefer parchment to vellum because it is a heavier weight. I hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking!

I placed a piece of dotted paper behind this one.

The paper behind this one has wispy looking cloud shapes.

Supplies: Parchment kit by Ecstacy Crafts, Pearlescent paints byNiji purchased in the art department of Hobby Lobby, Outside sentiment, "Love This" from CTMH.  



Really pretty cards.......I really love the softness this technique creates:) I'm trying to use up my stash too. Enjoy your weekend!
