Hello hello! Grace here.
I hope this finds you safe, happy, and enjoying your Sunday!
We’re blessed to be joined this weekend with the super talent, Jane Telford. Jane is both a valuable member of the Clarity design team and also our good friend. We love us some Jane! I’ll hand you over to the lady herself…
Fairy and Lace
The Lace and Flower Plates (designed by Linda Williams) are so pretty that I could use them all the time. For this project, I used the Daffodil plate but instead of the Daffodils, I added a fairy to the lace. I think it works well as the fairy I chose had just the right shape to fit in the circle. This is where we’re headed…

Step 1. Cut a piece of plain parchment using the largest square die. Put the fairy plate in the plate mate (with the spacer to fill the gap) and trace out the fairy.
Step 2. Change the plates to the Daffodil plate and trace out the lace.
Step 3. Move the parchment around and add more lace around the fairy, so that it looks like she’s sitting on a complete circle of lace.
Step 4. Put the fairy plate and spacer back into the plate mate and trace out the daisy.
Step 5. Reposition the parchment and trace out a dragonfly in each corner (from the spacer plate).
Step 6. Now emboss the double line around the edge using the Picot square Groovi plate. Your finished line art should look like this.
Step 7. Using the number 3 & number 4 Groovi tools, emboss some whitework in the lace, the fairy, the daisy, and the dragonflies.
Step 8. Using a pink Poly chromo pencil, add a touch of colour to the daisy petals on the front of the parchment.
Step 9. From the back of the parchment, colour the rest of the design.
Step 10. Use blending nibs and Dorso oil to smooth out your colouring.
Step 11. Cut a piece of designer paper to 6½” x 6½”. Attach the parchment to it using brads. Attach to a 7×7 card blank.
Step 12. Use the mapping pen and sticky ink to add glitter to the design.
Step 13. Marvel in your work. The project is now complete!
Hope you like it. Jane x
