Going 'Technie' with the CCEE

Maryann is the CCEE Stampers Challenge hostess for November.  This week she asked us to make cards using the bargello technique.  This happens to be a technique that I really like so I was glad to play with it again.

Instead of using for my entire background,  I used it for a small panel on the bottom of the design.  Splitcoast has a wonderful tutorial on this technique if you want to check it out.  The only stamping was the leaf.  I did not put a sentiment as I am undecided if I will use it for a Thanksgving card or a masculine birthday card.  We shall see......!!!!

Be sure to visit the CCEE Stampers Blog to see how the rest of the team enjoyed this technique.

Very nice card, Joanne! I like the small bargello panel, and this would definitely work for many occasions.

How smart you are to have just used a panel! I love the addition of the herringbone!

Wow, Joanne, what an amazing effect; it's almost 3D looking, and makes me think of a tumbling blocks quilt. Beautiful work.
