Bright Bargello

I'm off to a good start this week...I finished my Play Date Cafe entry two days before the deadline! Whoo-hoo!
This week's color story by Jaclym Miller is bright and fun, check it out!

 I love these colors together and decided to enter my card in the Tuesday Trigger challenge over at Moxie Fab World titled "Rainbow Bright"as well. The bright colors  and the varying heights of the spools is what inspired me for my card (bargello technique) The spools made me think of the skewing of patterns. Here is the inspiration for the Tuesday Trigger. 

 I've been thinking a lot about my brayer the past week, so I tried something new with it and used my markers to color strips of color right onto the brayer. After a brayered my ink strip pattern, I cut strips and arranged them as my focal point using the bargello technique (click here for a great tutorial on this technique). Usually you use patterned paper to do this, but I went CAS and just used my ink colors.

After arranging my strips on a panel, I rounded the corners and applied a rub-on sentiment with a small, pink rhinestone. The panel is popped up with foam mounts.
