Parchment Agapanthus

Today I have a card to share with you that I was inspired to create using Groovi plates and Clarity Stamps. Links to the products used are at the bottom of this post.


I used the Groovi octagon shape plate to create the octagon shape of the card. I wanted a scalloped border so I pulled the Groovi Square plate with scallops from my collection and embossed the scallops around the octagon. I stippled a border next to the scalloped edge.

The outer card is regular parchment paper, the inner card is white parchment paper. I was inspired by dishes that I have to create the circle of leaves within the octagon shape. I stamped the agapanthus image on a sheet of white paper and placed it under the parchment paper to paint the agapanthus flowers.

I painted the image with Tombow markers using Rosemary #0 and #1 watercolor brushes (my new favorite brushes). Once the painting was complete, I turned the parchment over and dorsed the area between the stippling and the leaves with Pergamano dorso crayons (earth colors). I lightly embossed the agapanthus and leaves with Pergamano embossing ball tools. I stippled the border with a Pergamano Bold one needle tool; the scalloped edge was embossed with Pergamano embossing ball tools.

    Stunning! It reminds me of dishes also – the ones I used to see at expensive gift shops that were usually purchased as decor items. I love the softness of the border that makes the beautiful painting of the flowers pop. You outdo yourself with every project and this is no exception.

    Such a gorgeous card… we have these gorgeous flowers, also known as the Lily of the Nile, blooming across the front of our home in California. You have captured the blossom cluster perfectly! And I love the way you paired the octagon shape and scalloped edge!
