Wild About You!
There's a new challenge today at Splitcoaststampers on the Ways To Use It forum! We got to use one of my favourite (though hardly used) techniques: Faux Tile Technique. Of course, I didn't read through to remind myself of the directions, so instead of using Glossy Accents for the squares, I used Versamark and clear embossing powder. I think it worked out great though! I used the Cave Folks image by Tiddly Inks. I just love it! I coloured it with Copic Markers (colours listed below), cut it out, and then glued it onto the coloured cave. Then when I heat embossed it, the body shapes stood out a little more! I love that! The sentiment is from the Wild About You SU set. The background paper had a small paint splatter as part of the graphic. So I ran with that and splattered my whole paper with actual craft paint. It was totally messy, and very fun! I hope you get a chance to play today!
