Faux Ceramic Tiles

On day 1 of the Online Card Class - Clean and Simple 4, Julie Ebersole showed how to create the look of a ceramic tile with clear embossing.

I loved it so much, I had to try and I did it with two different stamps, I just love how it turned out. It's really not my usual style for cards but I like it so much, those cards will probably go to someone I like a lot :-)

For the first one I used the PaperTrey Ink "Beautiful Blooms II" stamp set and die. All the inks I used are distress inks.

This is the first time I used a gold string in the background and although it was not easy to find the right place for it, I like the way it turned out.

Here is a closer look to the how the cardstock looks after two coats of clear embossing. Shiny and fun, really like a real ceramic tile.

I am entering this card to the Simon Says Stamp - Bright and Beautiful challenge

For the second card I used the "Antique Butterflies & Flowers" stamps and dies. In real life the green is so much more vibrant.

I am entering this card to the following challenges:

1. Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge ( H is for Hero Arts).

2. Hero Arts - Nature challenge

3. A2Z Scrapbooking - Embossing challenge
