Embossed Bargello

Evening All
Another Friday, boy are they coming round quickly.
I've been playing with my embossing folders again this evening after finding inspiration on Sue Wilson's blog.
She has a video clip showing how to do the Bargello technique using strips of embossed paper, so I thought that I would give it a try.
And if I do say so myself I think it looks fab.
She used plain white embossed strips on her card, but I just had to add some ink on the edges.
I was also reminded of Waxed Paper Embossing , a technique that I haven't played with in ages.
The central panel on this card was created using this technique.
Not wishing to waste anything I coloured the used waxed paper with Alcohol inks and then die cut some flowers from them using some of my Magnolia dies.
I added some extra flowers cut from white card as the waxed paper was a little fragile.
Of course I have another couple of panels to finish off as cards.
Why is it that I can never just make one piece when I'm playing, I always end up with loads of different bits and pieces. Oh well I guess that's why they call it playtime lol.
Have a great weekend.

  1. Hello kim
    This card brought back memories of my quilting days, where I cut strips of material to make a pattern, it is labour intensive but worth it as the results are always stunning, as is your card.
    Excellent work on the Bargello design.

  2. This looks like it would be fun to make up and beautiful to finish!

  3. Gorgeous card Kim. Totally lovely :)

  4. A beautiful card with lovely texture and dimension, really must have a go at the Bargello technique myself.x


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message, it is always greatly appreciated. I will try and get back to you as soon as possible if you have a query
