I came across the most beautiful cards. I had to know how they were made. After investigation I found out the technique is called Pergamano. It is a parchment craft. The parchment used is a special kind that is made especially for Pergamano. I found a couple of web sites that sold it. But the cheapest I found was on ebay. Here is the ebay store I bought from:http://stores.shop.ebay.com/NEEDLEWORK-MART__W0QQ_armrsZ1. They are incredible nice and very quick on sending the item. I contacted them and they combined the shipping which was incredibly reasonable. Here are my first two try's.. It is easier than it looks. The patterns came from the starter kit I bought which included the white pen, A5 papers, the two prong pin, purple coloring stick, embossing tool, and mat.
