Thought I’d share the first Faux Tiling panel I did, that didn’t quite work, but looks very pretty just the same. I made it into a card for my Mother. Mother’s day is coming up here in Australia and her favourite colours are orange & green. So Tangerine Tango and Old Olive it is (with a little So Saffron sponged over it all to soften it). I wrote “other” beside the big M with an Old Olive Stampin Write marker. It looks great, just not in the photos!
I layered up some gross grain and satin ribbons in vanilla and added a strip of lace to the mix (lace from my stash). The lace was awfully white, so I dragged it over the Tangerine Tango ink pad to give it a more suitable colour. The Very Vanilla base card was scallop edged and then I hand punched a hole through each scallop. A nice pearl tops off each small flower. Card Crafters Circle will like this card this week – their challenge is Pearls and Lace.
The background faux tiling was done with the Vintage Vogue stamp set, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and So Saffron inks on Very Vanilla CS. The base card is Tangerine Tango CS. As I’ve made the background myself I’m entering the Bloggers Challenge Blog Hop too. Here's the linky list so go check out everyone else's backgrounds too won't you!
