I’ve been wanting to try out Faux Tiling for a while and thought the big flower image from the Fresh Vintage stamp set was perfect for this look!
To make the Faux Tiling look on your cards, I grabbed my Simply Scored score board and the matching Diagonal score plate to get the grid lines. For the sample above, I started by having my paper positioned long side along the top of the score board (so with one edge stretching from 0 to 4.5”) and started doing a diagonal score every 1”. Then, you just rotate your paper to finish out the grid lines so that they go both ways to make your diamond shapes.
tip: For the faux tile look, do your score lines first and then stamp on your paper. If you don’t press your stamp down too hard, this will keep the ink off the grooves giving you those nice white lines in your image, reinforcing the tile look.
I kept it simple with my colors and just added some sponging to the white strip and punched circle. Finally, it may be hard to tell in the picture but I added a rhinestone to the center of the flower for a little bit of sparkle. 🙂
