Totally Stampalicious Monday - New Technique

So glad you could stop by today to check out my card for the Totally Stampalicious Monday Challenge.  This week we were challenged to try a technique we had never done before (or had not done in 'forevah').  I chose to do a technique that my friend Joan Ervin posted on SCS called Bargello Design.  Well......I LOVED doing this and the results and didn't want to hide it with too much else.  So, I used my digistamps of Coffee Brawd and created the cup with my fav 'coffee' saying from that set.   I colored in my coffee, and added a Tim Holtz flourish for some steam.  Then I added a row of brads, a little piercing, and that was that!!

A great place to check out some new technique ideas today would be the Totally Stampalicious Blog as each designer was trying something new this week, so it should be an interesting gallery.  PLUS, you can get the juicy details on how you can play along.

Joanne, this is a wonderful technique and you did a super job! I like your 'steam' and the sentiment...now that would take some steady, quick fingers. LOL
