Faux Tiling with Razzle Dazzle

Hi!

Today's card showcases a technique that was new to me - faux tiling.  There are a couple of ways to achieve similar looks and I think they all look great.

I stamped the main Razzle Dazzle image on Very Vanilla cardstock using Marina Mist ink.  I was after the blue and cream look that I associate with country-style kitchenware.  The corners of the cardstock looked a little bare so I stamped a bit of the image in each corner.  I then cut the cardstock into 9 equal squares, sponged the edges with River Rock ink, covered them in Crystal Effects and let them dry.   I then mounted each square on River Rock cardstock leaving a small gap between each tile to give the effect of grout.


The River Rock panel is raised on dimensionals.  I randomly stamped the main image over the base card and sponged the edges to give an added subtle tone on tone effect.


I also stamped the inside of the card.  Adds a nice finishing touch to the card.

Stamps: Razzle Dazzle
Ink: Marina Mist, River Rock
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Marina Mist, River Rock
Other: Marina Mist 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Word Window Large Punch, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals, Crop-A-Dile, blue eyelet.

Catch you later,
