Faux Tile Technique

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a project I taught at our April classes. We do a different technique each month and this one is the Faux Tile technique.

We started by decorating the background card, using the Very Vintage wheel and Rose Red ink on the Rose Red card - we also did some decoration on the envelope and inside of the card too.

Then using Whisper White card stock we scored inch squares, then brayered gently using Pink Pirouette ink. Next we stamped multiple images using Clearly For You making sure they went over the tile edges.


We finished with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch and the Eyelet Border punch and layered up a greeting on the matching Pool Party and Island Indigo cardstock.

The butterfly, greeting and background to the greeting also come from Clearly For You. We also used some beautiful Island Indigo ribbon and a couple of Basic Pearls.

Why not have a go with this technique next time you do some crafting?

Love Elizabeth X
