Fussy and Fancy "Use a Faux Technique" Challenge!

Hello and Happy Friday!
I just love Friday's!
Friday's mean that the weekend
is coming up with some free time
to craft and make cards!
Yay me!!!
Speaking of making cards

has a super fun challenge for

to participate in with us!
The challenge this fortnight is
Use a Faux Technique!
I googled Faux techniques
and went on the splitcoast stamping
tutorial sight and found lots of
fun possibilites to try!
Here is my card
using the faux tile technique
colored with copic markers and cut into 9 even squares.
I inked around the edges of each square to add the illusion of depth.
I then coated each individual square with crystal effects to give the
glossy appearance of tile.
I chose this stamped image because I can imagine having 
this tiled image in
both a bathroom or a kitchen!
I love the way this came out and I enjoyed
trying this new technique!
The cardstock is Stampin Up
The designer paper is First Edition Paper  Spring Feast
The butterflies are Bo Bunny
The corner embellishment is Wild Orchid Crafts
and the flowers and laces are from my stash!
I would like to enter the following challenges
Clear It Out Challenge   Theme Spring is coming Stash Flowers
City Crafters Challenge  Anything goes  PEARLS
Papertake Weekly Challenge   Anything Goes
The Ribbon Carousel Blog   Showers and Flowers  (Bathroom tile for shower LOL!
Spooled items are crocheted flowers and spooled lace)
I truly hope that you can find time to play in
your craft rooms and try a fun new technique to
share with us!  We love to visit your blogs!

Warmest Hugs, Sheryl

    These "faux" tiles look great on a card don't they and create a great illusion of the real thing. Love those crochet flowers too!
