A Parcher...

...I will never be.

I have been dabbling in parchment craft since falling in love with some of the Groovi plate designs but a full-blown parcher I will never be.

I am enjoying my 'play' with the embossing plates and when I had a free Parchment magazine with one of my papercraft mags, I thought I'd have a bash at something a little more complicated (???) as there were some lovely designs.

So armed with a white pencil, I traced off the design from the pattern in the mag and set to...
 ...as you can see, I've made a start and will probably be pleased with the finished piece...
...but I'm not sure I'll be going the whole hog and doing all the fancy stuff around the edges (we'll have to wait and see on that bit). The shading is coming along nicely but it isn't perfect and that is annoying me a bit as I want it to look better.

Patience was never a strong point of mine LOL

I will finish this but will probably adapt bits of the design because I can't see me getting much further than the shading.

I adore parchment work but I think I'll leave the masterpieces to Joanne (Pinnacle crafts) and my friend Hilary.................................................................................

I am loving the holly parchment design so far! I would so love to be able to do this - but as well as having too much to do already, I am not sure if I would have the patience!
I just think it looks so pretty yet elegant - I would love to see it all finished and mounted up onto a card - so so lovely!
