Using up the scraps project #8

Hello Crafters,
I have a neat one for you today. It uses up some of those strips again. It is another one of those techniques where it doesn't matter what colours/patterns you use, it always comes out looking super cool. It is called the bargello technique. Here is the link for the tutorial I used. There is a photo tutorial and a video demo at the bottom. I made two cards and then stepped a little outside the box and did a huge one that I can use for a scrapbook layout. I have not actually done the layout yet but the base looks cool! I will show that one to you when the layout is complete. Hopefully sometime soon...if you have seen my scrapbooking mojo in the last year please send it back...I will gladly send you my card making mojo, lol!

Oh my i just love these cards...i'm partial to fish for some reason. My room has a mural of orca whales that i painted as is surrounded with tropical fish on every wall and surface, i don't know how my hubby can stand it but i love for something serious.....i need you to use up my scraps...i went to a crop last night and tried one of your designs and i have to tell you i had issues:):) i think i need paper packs that have matching paper, i'm trying to use up some costco paper before i add more to my stash, cause i have way too much. Anyway love your cards for sure, talk way
