Hi! Before I start … I have to acknowledge that I have CASED this card (although I have changed the design & colours a little) … here is the original idea -> Mel Stampz
This card is using two techniques you may not have tried before. One is “faux tiling” (or grid technique) & the other is “french knots”. I want to show you a second “faux tiling” card … that REALLY looks like wall tiles … but I will add that in a 2nd mini post so the pics don’t get mixed up with this tutorial gallery!
So … here is the tutorial … the photos are a little small … and the grid lines are a little hard to see … so click on the pic to enlarge if you need to see better detail.
This is such a WOW card … I think ‘cos it is a little different! Don’t be afraid to try the French knots they really aren’t hard. We did this at stamp club and all the girls managed them really well!
Colours used: Pale Plum, Purely Pomegranate, Certainly Celery. Stamp sets: Garden Whimsy, Family Phrases, Daisy Field Wheel Stamp. Certainly Celery Ribbon.
“Til then … I hope you have a great day!
