Simply Scored Tile Card!

Here is another card I created with the help of the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. If you look closely, you will notice that the background of the Top Note Die shape has some vertical and horizontal lines running through it. I created those with my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to resemble tile. I scored at 1/2" intervals:

Stamp on your "tiled" layer with the French Foliage Stamp Set. Make sure your cardstock layer has the "bumps" from the scoring on the  upside-down side. You want to be able to see the tile lines when you stamp. I used 3 different ink colors: Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight and Regal Rose. The stamp image with the splotches was first inked and stamped on scrap paper and then without re-inking, stamp again but on your cardstock this time.

I stamped 3 of the leaves in the 3 different colors and another piece of Whisper White Cardstock and hand-cut all 3 leaves. I also sprayed all 3 of the leaves with Vanilla Shimmer Mist:

I hope you try this technique, it's quite simple and very beautiful to look at!
