Playing With Pergamano

I've been in the mood lately to try some new things so I got out the Pergamano and the Diamond Glaze and made a card (Birthday Wishes). The flowers were coloured using a paint brush and ink refills. I then added the glaze to the front to give it a shiny look. I stamped the leaves on the background and then added some MS punched leaves for dimension. However, I wasn't completely happy with how this card turned out, so I moved on from there to work on different ways to add colour to a Pergamano card. The card with the lady in the garden was coloured using different amounts of pressure with the embossing tool, as well as the Gelly Roll pens. The card with the roses was coloured with water colour paints. I think it's my favourite because the colour shows up well, and was easy to work with and add dimension with lights and darks.

Handy Tip: I made the silver edge on the Labels 1 layers by using a Pilot silver metallic broad tip marker. I put a slit in the centre of the tip, put the edge of the paper in the slit, and then run it evenly around the entire edge. An easy way to add a layer without adding more bulk to your card!
