Bargello Technique

I came across a new technique the other day while blog hopping on Dawn Olchefske blog, go check out her blog she has lots of tutorials.
The technique was called Bargello. 
Which is an embroidery technique that uses long stitches to create patterns.  But of course, we use paper to replicate the technique.

 So here is the my results using this technique. Do you like the chervons that I have created using the striped Cottage Wall DSP?
This week challenge at Just Add Ink # 23 is Just Add... Patterned Paper.
 So I thought this would be a great entry.
Last weeks JAI # 22 was a colour challenge which I wanted to do but I didn't get chance to do, so I have used them for this weeks challenge.
These are glorious colours and I have enjoyed using them together.
I don't know what the name of the style of card is, it is nice to make different cards from time to time.
I have used Cheep Talk Stamp Set, which is a 2 - Step Stampin' Stamp Set, which is very fun to use. 
Next month, Stampin’ Up! is having a promotion on several selected 2-step stamp sets – so you may well be able to pick up one of your favourites at a great price.
