To create this card I used Clarity's Groovi boards.
Henna border plate
Large box frame.
First using the large box frame and a 1mm embossing tool to get a crisp white line. I traced the inner and outer boxes only.
I then places the fuchsia plate in to th plate mate and using a 1.5 mm ball tool I out lined the bird and various flowers and leaves to create he desired image in the centre square. I then places the netting into the plate mate and went back to my 1 mm ball tool, I traces the grid pattern to fill the whole of the outside of the square frame I had created. I them swapped over to the border plate mate and the henna border to trace a frilly edge around the outside of the design.
Now to emboss the centre images, at first I use my largest ball tool, to start stretching the parchment gently. ( I use a tumble dryer sheet to stop the ball tool dragging). I then change down in size ball tool to help the parchment stretch more to give a whiter finish, when I an happy with how white I want it to be I leave it to rest, befor embossing one more time.
I used a two needle tool to edge the design as well as following the grid lines I created using the netting plate.
I then cut out the area I had pricked around using parchment scissors. I am entering this in the
