Nouveau Poppies

I have another parchment card to share which I made yesterday based on what I could remember from watching the clever Tina Cox on the recent Clarity  Hochanda show but using a different plate for the main part of the design.  The shows were based on the pierced borders to highlight two new books and of course some new floral and butterfly plates.   I used three borders across the piece with some flowers and dragonfly in the top section.  There was some cutting involved and the image was coloured from behind using watercolour markers.

Flowers - taken from Nouveau Poppies plate
Dragonfly - taken from Tina's flowers and butterflies
Borders - straight and diagonal pierced borders plates


  1. Very eye catching card Val love the border embossing across the front


  2. A beautiful card Val, lots of fancy work going on there too.
