Faux Tile Tutorial!

Good morning and happy Wednesday to you! I am so excited because today I have my first EVER tutorial debuting over at Splitcoast Stampers!! The tutorial shows you step by step how to get a faux tile look on your cards. I posted this card back in June using a Crafty Secret's image from the Seasonal Friends set.

I decided to create another card using this fun technique. First, I colored my image with Copics......these Copics.....

.......and another Crafty Secret's stamp,Floral Art. I added a bit of stitching, some pearls, and a pretty ribbon to finish it off.

If you want to make a poor gal extremely happy, please pay me a visit over at SCS, and check out my tutorial! I can't wait to see the cards you create using this fun technique! : )
Thanks so much for popping by! You gals really know how to brighten my day! : )
