Guest Designer - Tutorial: Wall Tile Background!


Hi everyone!

Today I have the privilege of being a Tutorial Guest Designer

at Splitcoaststampers with a technique that I call

Wall Tile Background!

I literally stumbled upon this idea by accident playing around

with my removeable wall tile decor.

I looked at all the hills and valleys and thought hmmmm...

that looks like a fun faux embossing folder!

The tile lended itself to be a beautiful background once 

mixed with paper, water and ink!

You can see the video here on YouTube at the 

Splitcoaststampers channel!


Here is the finished  look if you want to skip ahead 

to the final card :)

I started with these supplies:

This was actually quite easy and not quite as messy as it may seem,

although you know I love my messy art :)


Why this technique?

1. It was fun!  WAY fun!

2. It's cost effective - it was one whole dollar :)  Yep ... $1!

3. It's an alternative to an embossing folder ... 

4. did I mention fun?

5. You never get the same look twice!

Each and every background, every time, will be unique!

Head on over to Splitcoaststampers 

Tutorial section for more step by step instructions,

photos and the video!

Thanks for stopping by!
