I am guilty of not trying different techniques so I jumped on this challenge as an opportunity to expand my horizons. I'd never tried the Faux Tile Technique so I decided to give it a whirl. And it was FUN!!!
I'm using another image from today's sneak, A Season Of Celebration. As Beate said in her video, it's good to measure and plan out how you want to do this so your tiles come out even. So, I did that and ended up with a 4 x 4 configuration. I stamped the image on Classic Ivory card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink before cutting it into tiles. Then I coated each tile with Glossy Accents and let them dry before mounting them on black card stock.
Here's a close up of the shine. I really love how this turned out and I *will* be using this technique again!
