I'm sending best wishes to everyone for a truly wonderful Valentine's Day!!
This card was made using my own technique called "Etched Glass". It's been awhile since I've posted anything using the technique because I've been busy converting 'other' crafting techniques to parchment craft, but it was time for me to return to my Parchment Craft Etched Glass Technique and make a few projects and get a bit ahead of the long list of spring holidays and those family/friend birthdays coming very soon!!
For more information on my book, please click on the link above and if you have questions please feel free to contact me. My card is an American standard 5 X 7 inch finished size. The image is photo edited using Paint Shop Pro (Adobe PhotoShop could also be used) and it is then printed directly to the parchment paper. In the photo editing process, I have used a program element called a "mask" and that is the heart that appears over the image.
There are several preparation steps that must be taken prior to beginning a ©Parchment Craft Etched Glass Technique project and on my tutorials page there is a lengthy post on making a grid template AND printing on parchment paper, so please pop on over to that page while you're here and see how a bit of this process is accomplished. My book takes the process even further by providing a totally VISUAL, step-by-step class in the complete preparation process of making a project similar to my Valentine card to all of you.
