Tiled Birthday Card

Hello Everyone

Long time no

Today's card was created using a technique from a mag, creating a tile effect.

 I love how it turned out. I'm in the process of making a Christmas Card with the same technique.

I'm quite heavy handed so to protect my grouting line I used artist gum, then stamped and inked it. Made sure the inks were dry before rubbing the gum off and used versamark and clear embossing powder a couple of time.

As always thanks for your visit!
