My Winning #GDP card!!!
The 'Herringbone' Technique
Good Morning Ladies,
First of all today I want to 'Blow My Own Trumpet' !! I have shared the card I made a few weeks ago using the First Frost Dsp for the Global Design Project Challenge again today because while I was at Onstage at the weekend I received the news that I had WON !!! I actually can't believe it to be honest, there is no prize, you just get to show the I'm a #GDP Winner badge on your blog. But I am totally happy with that recognition!
Now onto today's 'Bit Box' Card, I had a few bits of card that were in short strips, offcuts that were about an inch or so thick, so I looked on Pinterest to see if there was a pattern that I could build with them, and I came across the 'Herringbone' pattern.
So pretty much like the starburst technique I covered a piece of card with adhesive and laid the first 3 strips of card (dark red) down to create the basic starting point for the pattern, you then just work round, butting each piece of paper up to the next, until you reach the edges of your card, then you stop and turn over and trim off any over hanging pieces.
I am happy to do another quick tutorial if you would like me too.
Now because the pattern is so busy I didn't want to make the front of the card look overcrowded, I also wanted to show off the design.
I have shared just the background so that you can see the whole design.
I am really looking forward to seeing all of your 'Bit Box' cards this week, it doesn't matter if you have only used one piece from your Bit Box, just as long as there is something.
I had a very quiet day yesterday, uploading YouTube Videos, which wasn't helped by the internet, it kept cutting out, which is so annoying as you don't know if it has stopped the 'Upload'. Fingers crossed the next one will be up on Saturday.
I will leave another link to yesterdays in case any of you missed it...….
Tutorial for Starburst Cards.
I hope that you all have a lovely day and a lovely weekend, can you believe we are mid way through November!?!
Sending Love and Huge Hugs to all of You,
