Each month I have a group of ladies who get together for a Stamp Club. We make a couple projects each month and this month I thought Pilar (the hostess) would enjoy learning about the Faux Tiling technique. So, I promised her to have one of the cards use this technique, and this is what I came up with for her –
As I was working on it, I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out but in the end I really like it! Its pretty easy to do too.
If you haven’t done Faux Tiling, the basics are as follows:
- Start with your white piece of paper
- Pull out your diagonal score plate for your Simply Scored (or other score board) and place the paper in the upper left corner.
- For this card, I started scoring at 1/2”, 1-1/2”, and so on at 1” intervals. Then I flipped the paper and used the same score measurements to complete my grid lines
- Stamp a fairly dense or solid image randomly over the scored paper (the score lines should be valleys, so not poking up out of your paper.)
** make sure you aren’t stamping very hard as you want the stamped image to not go into the scored lines
- Embellish the rest of your card as desired and you are done!
I plan to put together a video on this so for those of you who are more visual, check back or watch my YouTube channel for updates.
