Technique Tuesday

I was invited to take part in the Technique Tuesday challenge and there is a tutorial over there for this faux tile technique - follow the link to see it and also the work by their design team.  I used another Elusive Images stamp (now Chocolate Baroque), some Tim Holtz vintage shabby background paper and die cuts using up the other half of the Top Note piece which I cut yesterday and also a lattice Memory Box die. The sentiment was produced on the cojmputer and is layered onto an X-cut tag shape also die cut. I can see lots of potential for this idea and will probably be using it again as I'm sure it can look very different depending upon the stamps used.


  1. I love this. The colours are Stunning and its not something I've tried ,but I'll need to wait till 2013 now. Have a Lovely Christmas. Hugs Rita xx

  2. A gorgeous card in beautiful colours, I've been tring to find the time to join in with this technique, but not managed it yet. Christmas is coming a little too quickly now.
