Shopping Our Stash Challenge 280

Hi Everyone,

This is my fifth and last week as Guest Designer over at Shopping Our Stash - in case you don't know its a weekly challenge, where you are supposed to use something in your stash - preferably something neglected ;)

This weeks challenge is Paper Strip Art - Use the Bargello Technique on your card or project.
Now this is something I would normally avoid.... I have this aversion to use patterned paper, although my stash is quite impressive.....not sure why I ever buy any.... So I procrastinated a bit about this and then I finally made my card and here it is:

Again, I avoided patterned paper - oh well, it was not meant to be....
If you want to learn about the Bargello technique click HERE. Just gonna tell you - you need a lot of adhesive and you can not make this in 5 minutes...
The sentiment is by Simon Says

Eager to try this?

The challenge runs until Midnight December 5th - come and play along!

Happy Stamping!

I have been loving this since I saw it in the SOS preview... original and unique asymmetrical Bargello. Much crafty love for sharing cards with up for the past month-- you make us look good!

Wow, the bargello looks amazing in shades of blue with the beautiful white sentiment!

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh that is SO GORGEOUS, i wouldn't have thought you could make something SOOOOO dramatic just with solid colors but boy oh boy you've proven it so well! (ps: i'm definitely using enough patterned paper for both of us, tho, so don't worry about that!

thanks very much for being our lovely guest star at SHOPPING OUR STASH, it was wonderful having you with us all throughout november. everything you made was luscious and totally inspiring! <3 <3 <3

ps: i forgot to say how much i love that your design runs sideways rather than up & down; i totally want to get my strips back out and try one like this!!! :)

Susanne Vargas said...

Sehr coole Technik! Das einfarbige Papier verleiht dem ganzen einen moderneren, grafischen Touch! Ganz toll!

Bożena Adamusińska said...

I appreciate this card, because I know how very laborious to perform such paper. But the effect is worth the trouble. I love this card :-)

Anita in France said...

So cool and funky, Cornelia ... those ombré blue blocks are so dramatic and bold ... gorgeous with the white sentiment! Hugs, Anita :)
