faux tile

Today the SCS Mix69 challenge was to make faux tile. I used microsoft excel to print a stencil for my tile. I printed it and cut the "tiles" out using an exacto knife. I then covered up the holes with drywall tape. I then sponged with purple and blue ink. I took a second stencil and added silver inka gold metallic ink for the grout. I outlined the grout with a black sharpie marker. I drew x-s in the intersections. I added rhinestones over the x-s. I added quilled roses and a keyboard.
 This sweet little dancer is a digital image from Diane's Daydream Designs. It is from a set called MY HEART STILL DANCES

 This card used the same stencil except with greens and blues. Instead of doing silver inka gold metallic rub on the grout, I used texture paste. I added rhinestones, quilled roses and stamped butterflies.


  1. What fabulous cards MariLynn. Love the way you have created the tiles and then added dimension to the end product. The roses and butterfly card is my favourite of the two.

  2. Totally beautiful!!! Love all the texture and dimension. Lovely creations, MariLynn!

  3. Very fun cards! Very unique! I love them!
