Rustic Birdhouse

Published by at 11:17 am under Parchment Craft,Pergamano,Thinking of You

Hi there sweet friends! Today I have a parchment card to share. I designed this card last September for a parchment craft magazine in the United Kingdom. I sent it over to the editor in October and didn’t have time to get pictures of it before submission. I recently received it back and set aside some time to get it photographed.

I named the card “Rustic Birdhouse”.

I painted the design with Pergamano pintura acrylic paints.


The card is published in the January issue of Parchment Craft magazine, a UK publication. The pattern and instructions are included.

Because it’s somewhat challenging to photograph a parchment card and get accurate colors and see the delicate beauty of the craft, I’ve scanned the card to better portray the true colors and parchment work.

If you’re interested in learning parchment craft or  know some of the basics, please don’t hesitate to e-mail me. I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have. I do sell the Pergamano supplies at A Touch of Grace – Paper Boutique.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I so enjoy your visits and hearing from you. Many hugs!!Jerri Siggy3

    This is simply exquisite. You pay such attention to detail in your painting and the colours you chose blend beautifully. The edge of the card is fabulous and I can only imagine how long it took to do. Another parchment work of art.

    What a beauty! I don’t think I’ll ever get the ability of shading. Not that I don’t try.😕
    I love the whole card. And that bird. I wish the mag was a US one. But I’m still going to the book store, which sells some UK issues. I might find it there. Congrats on your publication! I know its not your first, but I’m sure it still gets you tickled every time.
    Big hugs, Jess

    Oh, Jerri, this is exquisite! Your painting skills are amazing, and I love the precious sentiment that surely takes a very steady hand. What a joy to be published, and I know many who receive this magazine will love it and enjoy reading how you’ve done it and try it themselves. What inspiration you are, sweet and dear friend! I love the scanned image, because I can see the sentiment detail more…and surely the colors are more vibrant. Sending hugs and love, precious friend! xoxo

    Greetings Jerri,
    Another stunning card. I love the little birdhouse, and the little bird is so life like one can almost touch it’s little feathers. The flowers are exquisite, so three d like. Someday I hope to see your work in person. Take care my friend and have a great week.
    Hugs, Eunice

    I’ve just come to your blog for the first time today via Barbara Gray’s Claritystamp link in the UK. What a treat to see your fantastic work, especially as you’ve been posting for so many years already (I’m going to dip into the archives as and when). Parchment work is very beautiful, but I never managed it until Barbara’s Groovi system came along and I’m slowly, slowly getting to terms with what’s possible using her plates. I’m really looking forward to what the future brings – and I’ll certainly add your site to my list of those I follow regularly.

    Hello to all from a grey, windy but fairly mild London. Anne
