Tile Technique

I had a wonderful time a couple weeks ago at a demonstator party hosted by my upline, Shana Gaff and her upline, Nikki Holt. We stamped and talked and I enjoyed meeting some fellow demonstrators. We also had a card swap that night as well and I decided to share a card that we had made at our last card camp. Here it is...
 I decided to make a card with an appearance of a tiled background. This reminds me of something you might see in a kitchen.This is such a fun technique that is fairly simple to do. I began by scoring every inch with the Diagonal Plate then turning 1/4 and scoring again. I then used a clear acrylic block and applied Cajun Craze ink directly to the block. I gently rubbed the inked block over the surface to add some flecks of color. I then layered Crumb Cake, Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, and Early Espresso applied with sponges. I also sponged Soft Suede over the Comfort Cafe DSP to allow the color to match better.  The stamped images are from Summer Silhouettes and Papillon Potpourri.
Have a great day!!!
