Parchment Craft SweetStamps.com Challenge...

Ok, so I must admit I had no clue what Parchment Crafting was until I was given my DT schedule of challenges and asked my fellow sweeties about it... now I must say LOVE it!  It gives such an elegance and softness to images, and I will def. have to try this technique again with more stamps... if you are like me and not sure what parchment crafting is I would recommend watching this video for a how to.  Now with that said here is my take on the challenge:

Supplies Used:
Parchment Paper
Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up!
Stamp: Starflake Medallion
Dies: Fancy leaves sweetcuts
Colored Pencils
Pearls: Recollections

Tips if you do not own a mat as shown in the video at this time and still want to play along you can use a squishy mousepad as I did, just be gentle with your stylus so as not to rip the paper.

Make sure you play along with us this week for your chance to win $20 to spend at the SweetStamps.com store!  And stop back tomorrow for our monthly technique challenge: Chalkboard for your chance to win more goodies!

Happy Crafting!
