I started by brushing some hills onto Gelli plate card, using pale blue, mauve and pink ink, and some torn paper as a mask for the hills, blending the edges a little I also sponged some clouds in the sky. Next I stamped the Balloon image onto some pink parchment using white ink. Then I embossed all the solid parts of the Filigraphy stamp, rather time consuming but worth it as it brought out all the detail. Good job I like a challenge. I am not an expert at parchment craft but I love the effect that can be achieved, I do admire the wonderful people who are skilled at this craft.
I have shown some close ups of the different parts of the card as the colours were quite pale not so easy to show in a photo.
Well I hope she likes her card but perhaps more importantly that she has a wonderful trip to see her family. I look forward to hearing all about it after Christmas. If you are off on your travels over the festive period have a lovely time.
