HSS Technique Challenge Bargello #93

Good Morning Stampers!! I am sorry that I haven’t been good at posting on a more frequent basis over the last week or so… I have been crazy busy!  I have had several classes/clubs and trying to get things ready for a few vendor fairs and more clubs coming up, so I truly apologize!  I am super thrilled with the card that I made for this weeks Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments, it all about the Bargello Technique– super easy and FUN!!  I did it with a twist… instead of using designer or stamped paper I did it with embossed paper- FUN!!!

You should check out HSS for all the details-
I took strips of embossed card stock and pieced them together.  I used the stripes, polka-dot, square lattice, & vintage wallpaper embossing folder and my big shot to make the designs.  I used Rich Razzleberry, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Old Olive, and Pink Pirouette card stock.

I used my ornate blossom stamp for my focal image, I love this stamp and I made it with a variety of my colors using the marvelous markers. :-)
Of course I can’t consider it complete unless it is showered with shiny things… I outlined and covered different parts of my card with dazzling details. I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
I put thick layers of it on the petals of the flower, it almost looks like puffy paint. :-)
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my little crafty space here, pop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and share your project for this weeks technique theme.  I can’t wait to see what you all create- have fun!!
