Faux Tile Turtorial
To do the faux tile technique, start by scoring your white cardstock. You can use the "scorepal" or just a score blade (shown). Load your paper diagonally, then score at 1" intervals. Position your paper so you can score across the lines you have established. Making a criss cross pattern, now it looks like a tile grid. With a sponge brayer, or daubers add some color to your tile. Be sure to put more emphasis into your lines! So the "grout" lines will show. You can then decorate your tile as you like. And finish your card. See how what a cool the tile gives as a background!
