Bandana Girlfriends

I think I've overdone this Bandana technique. I saw Carol's GORGEOUS bandana tags yesterday, and I'm so ashamed of mine.
My problem? Once I started on the white gel pen, I just couldn't stop. But I sure love the mix of colours you can get before you start the white pen (see the background of the main image). I first learnt this technique a long while back at the local stamp club, demoed by my dear sweet friend, Deanna M., which I'll post the card I did there tomorrow. You can also found this technique in the latest TJ Newsletter. I think I also overdid my flowers. Never used so many brads on a card. Main image is Paperbag Studio. Paisley background is Stampin' Up! Oval pearl brads found on clearance rack at Walmart. It's still a pretty card, eh?

Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!

Oh my gosh, this is so pretty! What a fun technique! Not sure I have as much patience as you do, however. I have always loved that Paperbag image and it looks super-duper on this card!

Have a great day!

So glad I inspired you. I love this card, it reminds me of the Zentangle style of doodling.

Wow, looks great. I made a promise to myself that I would try one new craft every month. Maybe I will start with this one.
