A couple of weeks ago I received a phone call from the local craft shop asking if I'd be interested in attending some Saturday Pergamano classes. The lady teaching is self-taught so it's not Pergamano registered but uses the Pergamano tools stocked by the local shop. The class is kept small so participation is by invitation only & it is held once a month for 6 sessions. When I took my first rather tentative steps in cardmaking I was fascinated by Parchment Craft but was advised not to concentrate on it to begin with. Dabbling in a bit of everything I was soon captivated by stamps so an opportunity to return to where I came into crafting & actually be shown the basics in Pergamano I felt was not to be missed. The first class was held last Saturday & I loved it.
Working from what I learnt using the pattern the teacher provided I had the bones of an idea which I have fiddled with to produce an entry for the new "Less is More" Challenge. I did have to curb my inclination to add more layers & embellishments but nevertheless hope that my card is along the right lines for it to qualify.
