Challenge for yesterday over at Splitcoast Stampers - Create a background using a Faux Tile technique and your Scor Pal. Julie Warner of The Write Stuff created a tutorial you can find here.
For my first attempt, I got a little carried away, so ended up putting the light grey into the grout lines. The background image is the Victorian Lace from Stampin Up. I used Marina Mist to color and shade, then a C1 copic to shadow the edges even further. The image is from Winter Wonderland, again stamped in Marina. I wanted to keep it fairly monochromatic, so just aded some gold Stickles to the sun and icicles to the snowflakes.
For an alternative Faux Tile technique using embossing powders and a brass stencil, check out a psuedo tutorial I did back in June that you can Find Here .
Thanks for popping by ... Hope you all have a wonderful week.
