Tile Effect

Today's card is using a technique which I believe is called the 'tile effect' and one which I have seen lately around blogland. I thought I would give it a go and am quite pleased with the result.
I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and scored a grid at 1cm intervals to create the 'tile effect'. Once this was done I sponged the cardstock with Wisteria Wonder before stamping the images from Field Flowers in Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive. Unfortunately, as you can see, I was in too much of a rush to use my stamp-a-ma-jig so the stems disappear a little too much into the flower heads!! A butterfly was stamped in Elegant Eggplant and another, punched from Vellum with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and sponged with ink, was placed so it overlapped. The sentiment, also from Field Flowers, was stamped in the bottom corner before matting and layering onto Elegant Eggplant cardstock and a white card blank.
Tomorrow I will be back with another very easy CAS card using new stamps, a new punch and a new colour!
