Faux Bargello challenge!

Share |

This week I'll be teaching the attendees of my "Time for Techniques" classes a really fun technique I call Faux Bargello.

It is a technique that is often used in quilting and I've seen (and made) the same with paper scraps for my cardmaking but BOY, is it ever a tediously long process.

As described in this article by Penny Crocker Wasmund:

So, how did I cheat to make the whole process faster with the same kind of results? Use striped patterned paper! You still make the strips and move them up and down as you adhere them to a base. Check out the card below to see what I mean....

Because I was looking to create a St Patrick's Day card as one of my examples, I was going to need some greens in my papers...thus, Woodland Walk Designer Series Paper!

It uses Garden Green and Wild Wasabi as well as Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip.

I already had the individual Lucky Shamrock stamp from the Occasions mini catalogue, so this was the perfect opportunity to use it!

So, my challenge to YOU all is...create a Bargello card of your own using striped paper. You can send me a photo, or direct me to the link on your blog if you have one, but I'd love to see what you come up with on your own!

(special shout outs to Dina and Dianne B for their upcoming St Paddy's birthdays)

You're welcome to join me on Wednesday or Thursday for this fun class. As well as the Faux-Bargello technique, you'll also learn how to do Polished Stone, stamping on candles and the Baby Wipe techniques. RSVP to hold a spot!

I made a faux bargello card today, and unbeknownst to me I used the same paper as you. It was a fun and easy card to make. You'll find my card here:
