Bargello - Curtain Call Act #31

Here we are, together again for the Curtain Call Challenge.  As always, our stamping leader, Stacey has given the Crew a wonderful inspiration photo.

I was particularly excited to try the Bargello technique.  It's simple enough.  The effect is really great!  I didn't want to cover up all that beautiful work so I kept my stamping to a minimum.  The sentiment stamped on vellum also helped.

Are you thinking I missed a challenge color?  Pretty in Pink?  Well, I tried to work in more of just didn't work out for me.  However, it is in there!  Just look closely at the Tea Party Designer Series Paper.
