    I was on another board and saw something new - well at least new to me. It was "parchment". I'm not exactly what else it is called. It looks like embossing maybe and then areas are cut out as well as some areas could be chalked or painted. It is really beautiful.

    Does anyone do this? Do you use it on your scrapbooking pages or is it mostly for cards? If you have used this technique, would you mind sharing your information of how to's, etc.

    My sister does something like this. She has tools that punches holes in the parchment. It's very pretty and delicate looking. If no one is able to find anything for you, I'll get some info from her and maybe find a website for you.

    Hi Dawn..
    This technique is called Parchment Craft.. there are some people who call it Pergamano but that is just the brand name given to one company who I believe started it all.. I can't think of the ladies name..hang on.. I think it might be Martha Ospina.. anyway.. she's one of the big names in Parchment Craft.
    Dawn.. I've played around with this craft and it is trully beautiful but like so many other techniques.. can be quite expensive to get all the tools.. however.. Darlene mentioned Parchemore.. which is Fiskars brand name for there bits and bobs that produce some work in that line.. Gosh.. I do hope I'm making sense.. I am feeling like I need a FULL OVERHAUL
    Anyway.. look up Pergamano and you'll see what I mean.

    love.. Angie
