Bargello Play From The Beginning

I have looked at Bargello cards for years in awe of the pieces and patterns. Finally I decided this was the week to do it. I found relatively easy instructions on I decided to use Glossy cardstock and started by dyeing all of the Glossy White with 5 different colors and left one white. Next I used background stamps from Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela - Swirly, Impression-Obsession - Swirl, Starving Artists - Fern Leaf , and Sculpy Clay Texture Sheet - Dancing Spirals. Brilliance Galaxy Gold was used to stamp the Swirly, Swirl and Fern Leaf backgrounds. Dye on Dye was used for the Purple background. I used the Castaway pad on top of the Lavender dye ink to bleach it out. Then I used the instructions from the page from the direct link above.
The flower is one from the Three Windows stamp by Impression-Obsession. It was stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold, painted with dye ink, and then Twinklin H2O's. The gold tie is Krenik Gold #16 Tapestry Braid cord. The heart is from Fancifuls, Inc. Charm Catalog pg 5, #2046. Ranger Stickles Diamond glitter glue was used to highlight the fronds around the rose. It was fun and not so difficult when I followed the directions. Smile!!
Thanks for stopping by "the blog" to look.
