Just Saying Hello! - Bandana Technique

I have a confession to make. The a│s designers made this card with bandanas all over the front cherry panel. It was gorgeous! But, I was going to have 16 stampers at camp and after doing a full card front myself, I knew there was NO WAY this was going to work. They'd kill me. It takes quite a while to do a full card front of bandana technique gel penning. But, one is not bad and one worked pretty well and with the twine and pinstripe and onyx pearls and so I modified and it was all good. :) 

Tools & Supplies:
Stamp Set: Modern Zinnia, Friend to Friend
Cardstock: Sky, Cherry, Seattle Petite Pinstripe, Sugar
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Signo Uni-Ball White Gel Pen
Toffee Twine (sample is in vanilla)
Onyx Pearl Stickers

Cutting Instructions:
Sky cardstock: 3 1/2” x 10”
Cherry cardstock: 4 1/2” x 3”
Seattle Petite Pinstripe cardstock: 4 1/2” x 3/4”
Sugar Cardstock: 5/8” x 3 1/2”

1. Score Sky cardstock at 5” to make A1 card.
2. Stamp Zinnia image with Memento tuxedo black
3. Using gel pen, randomly add “stitching” to image
4. Stamp sentiment with Memento on sugar layer.
5. Adhere pearl stickers.
6. Adhere seattle petite pinstrip to cherry layer; adhere both to card base.
7. Adhere sugar layer.
8. Wrap twine around card front and tie bow.


Have a wonderfully creative day!

Your tutorials have been so much fun to read and have loved everyone of them. It has been a long time since I have done this technique - may have to try it soon. Great projects.
