Artistic Faux Tile

Just a few things to note about the making of the card.....

I made this card a while ago using the Faux Tile Technique.  Click HERE for a tutorial on how to use this technique. You do have to put quite a bit of Crystal Effects on each square to cover the area.  Plus I let it dry overnight.  I found that Tombo Liquid Glue worked best to adhere the tiles to the Chocolate Chip card stock background.

The ribbon is just pleated with a glue dot stuck behind each pleat.  I have also seen the ribbon without a glue dot but then each pleat sticks up a bit.  A different look, but looks good too.  

Also, to attach the brad, I used my crop-o-dile to punch through all the layers.


Stamps:  French Foliage, Artistic Etchings, Notably Ornate
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories:  Distressing Tool, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals, Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Victoria 5/8" Crochet Trim, Very Vanilla 5/8" Jumbo Brad, Glue Dots, Crop-o-dile, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Tombo Liquid Glue

Beautiful work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
