Today’s tutorial on Splitcoast is written by Michelle Kovack. She shows us how to give images a Faux Tile look. For my sample I used Flourishes Kids Play stamp set. I stamped the boy image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers ( BG72, BG93, BG96, BG99, G24, G28, E31, E33, E35). The sky was airbrushed with Copic Marker B12.
The image was cut into 3/4″ squares. Those squares were topped with Glossy Accents. After the tiles dried they were attached to a another piece of white cardstock. A black piece of cardstock was cut and embossed with Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities and the layers were adhered it with dimensionals.
The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half.
A 2 1/4″ x 4″ piece of 7 Gypsies Conservatory paper was adhered to a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece paper from the same paper pack. The papers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Basic Black cardstock.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a tag cut out of Classic Cream cardstock cut and embossed with a retired Tag Spellbinders die. It was adhered to the right side of the image and topped with a bow out of Linen Ribbon.
