At the Community Centre this arvo, we will be making this card.  I have actually taken the sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday & thought it would be a very easy layout to complete while at the same time teach a new technique - Faux Tiles, as well as Water Colouring.  This is such an esay technique.  Check back tomorrow & I will have the tutorial on how I did the tiles.

Anyhow, on with the card -

Base Card - Pear Pizzazz - 5 7/8" x 4 1/8" or 15cm x 10cm
Layer 1 - DSP - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 - Rich Razzleberry - 3" x 3 1/2" or 8cm x 9cm
Layer 3 - Whisper White - 2 7/8" x 3 1/8" or 7.5cm x 8.5cm

Inside of Card

I stamped my image directly onto the Whisper White Cardstock, using my Aqua Painter, proceeded to colour image with Pear Pizzaz Ink.  Once dried, I scored the card in a tile pattern - gaps will appear where your scorelines are.  This was adhered to the piece of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock.  It has been soooooo long since I have used this colour that I am finding it a very refreshing change.

The piece was adhered to the RHS side of the DSP, Rich Razzleberry Grosgrain Ribbon attached - again with the Rich Razzleberry - across the bottom half of the DSP & the whole piece  adhered to the base card - Pear Pizzazz.

Close Up of Tile Effect

I stamped a flower image onto a piece of scrap Whisper White using Rich Razzleberry Ink, coloured with my Aqua Painter, cut it out & applied to the card using a SU Dimensional.

I hope the operators will forgive me, but I didn't stamp a sentiment.  I love to stamp these onto my card when I know what I want my card to be used for.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Growing Green
Ink - Rich razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz
Cardstock - Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry
DSP - Greenhouse Gala
Ribbon - Grosgrain Ribbon - Rich Razzleberry
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Aqua Painter, SU Dimensionals

Until next time, Enjoy!
