I'm not a big fan of this technique, but if you can do it right, it is really pretty. I did about eight of them before I got this one. I just couldn't seem to get the faux coloring right or the placement of my image. Isn't he the cutest? He is a digi from Delightful Inspiration that I got for free because I entered April's challenge. If you follow the link, you will see this little mouse and the rules for entering the May challenge.
This technique was to be done using a stamp for the image. However, I wanted to use this darling mouse which is a digi. To do this, after scoring my cardstock, ran it through the printer to place the mouse. I then proceeded to do my coloring.
I used SU chalk to do the faux tiling. I don't know what color it is except that its orange and my chalks are at least ten years old. I used SU pens to color this darling little mouse, added googly eyes and the sentiment.
So go check out the Delightful Inspiration challenge while I get this card into the mail and on its way to Nancy. Hope she likes it.
