Bandana Birthday

My monthly techniques group meets this week and I decided to pull out an older technique to show them. 

Birthday card featuring the Bandana Technique with the Flowering Flourishes stamp set (126367) and sentiment from Perfectly Penned (122892).

The Bandana Technique has been around a while, but I haven't done it with this group yet, so I thought it was about time!  I designed this card with a decidedly country flavour.

This technique works best with flourish or paisley stamp images.  I opted to use the Flowering Flourishes set which, I have to say, works pretty well! Here is a quick rundown of the products I used:
  • I stamped the largest image from Flowering Flourishes on Real Red card stock using black Staz On ink.  
  • I added the white highlights to the stamped images using my White Stampin' Chalk Marker (132133)...sooo much easier to use than a white gel pen!  That one's a keeper!!
  • I sponged the edges of the bandana layer with Real Red ink.
  • The denim-looking background is just a piece of Midnight Muse Core'dinations card stock.  I lightly sanded the entire surface of the textured side...instant denim!
  • I added a bit of burlap trim and little button brads from the Vintage Trinkets (118764)
  • I also added little knots of twine to the sentiment label.
Sometimes its fun to pull out older technique and try them in a fresh new way.  Its also TONS of fun to try brand new techniques and have we got a great one over at The Technique Twist tomorrow!  Stay tuned...
