T is for Technique at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!!!

Edna stole my colour pallet 

Another Saturday has rolled  around and with this Saturday it's a new Challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, T is for Technique. a few weeks ago there was a challenge and I can't even remember who's it was but it was to make a Herringbone background, well it intrigued me but sadly ran out of time for the challenge but kept in in mind for this challenge. There were a couple of videos that I watched and decided on this ONE the other video I will watch and try it too as it is a bit different.

I bought this paper pad at Walmart before I retired and I have been retired 19 years. I think I've been hoarding it as it is so pretty. My sticker maker made placing of the strips very easy. I used 4 different 12 X 12 co-ordinating patterned paper cut in 1/4 inch strips, now the video said 9 so I cut 9 of each design and I have enough left for at least 3 more cards, next time I must pay attention to the small details. I added a samll sentiment as I really wanted the background to be the star.

The sentiment is from Wine Not from Creative Impressions and has 20 wine related sentiments.

There are many more techniques at the Main Blog when you have checked the rest of the design team techniques find a good one and join us. I am looking forward to seeing something I've never seen before.
Thanks for joining me here today and have a wonderful weekend.

I always choose wine - even though I seldom choose naked! :D Nicely done on the snark that still lets this amazing background shine.
