How to Create Bargello Style

Taking us back to February 2008, I posted a tutorial about Bargello Style.  Over time there are new techniques and new styles so I decided to update this tutorial.  I hope you don’t mind.

Today’s card uses the brayer which is something I have been enjoying lately.  I hope you have a brayer and will try this tutorial out.

Supplies:  Brayer, Kaleidicolor ink pad, Stazon or black dye ink and stamps, Glossy cardstock (white cardstock if you do not have glossy) cut to 3″ x 5 “, Sticky sheet, Xyron paper, or ATG tape.

Brayer ink onto glossy cardstock

Continue adding ink with brayer

Stamp image(s) all over the brayered cardstock.

Cut your cardstock into even-size pieces.  I cut my into 1/2″ pieces.

Prepare  cardstock using a sticky sheet, Xyron sheet, or ATG tape (as seen in this photo).

With your 3″ x 5″” cardstock, lay cut strips closely together.  Stagger each piece.

Adhere your finished staggered-strips onto cardstock.

Another stunner Beth! I’m rubbish at brayering though.
Can’t seem to get a smooth effect at all. You are SO clever!

Hi, Beth! Gorgeous cards! Love that large flourishy stamp! If you don’t mind sharing, I’d love to know who makes it and what the stamp is called!
