Tiled hello!

   Hey there!  Thursday already!  Man oh man is this week ever flying by!!  I have another card to share with you today using a technique that is new to me!  It is a tile technique!  Turned out to be pretty cool and much quicker than the version where you cut apart and re-adhere all of the tiny tiles! That version takes forever!!  Ask me how I know! :)

I think it looks just like a tile mosaic!  I am tickled with this technique!  I used Stampin Ups! Simply scored tool and scored my card stock at every half inch.  Then I flipped it sideways and did it on the other side.  After I scored I stamped my image and then colored it.  Then I took a sponge and went over everything with Chocolate Chip which stayed on the surface, but doesn't make it down into the tiny grooves.  There you have it......tile! :)

Side view.

Up close. 
 I added Dazzling Details to the flowers which gave them all a nice little shimmer.  Awesome technique.....I say give it a try!

Stamps: Elements of Style and Easy Events
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke and Pretty In Pink
Paper: Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke and Pink Pirouette
Dies and Punches: 1 1/2" Circle punch
Extras: Rhinestones and Dazzling Details

Off to be productive!  Hope that you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

I always love the things you do and this one is no exception! This is so cool, I can't wait to try it. Did you sponge right on top of the colored image?

Love your floral tile and it sounds much easier than the old method!! Fantastic coloring on those flowers and I love the half circle with the sentiment peeking out!
