As I finished my card & went to show my husband, the convo went something similar to him telling me that I had a nice card with some "Fru-fru" thing on it. Yes, fru-fru. I didn't even bother to tell him what it was made of. I'm not a fan of fru-fru. LOL
Anyhoo, today's challenge at The Technique Twist challenge we are playing with Faux Tile. There are several different techniques out there but I chose to use Julie Warner's technique for Faux Tile Background. How did I twist though? Hmm......in my Snowy Brillance post, I talked about my brillant moment with Waxed paper! Here it is. I was going to use Vellum but quite honestly, the score lines just kept ripping. So while I was embossing & using my waxed paper to catching my embossing powder, I accidentally spilled some on there. I just decided to heat it up & it created this glossiness. So for this fluffy snowflake, I stamped & embossed some snowflakes on waxed paper, then I also made sure the wax was heated up as well. I then scored the waxed paper to give it tile lines and over the back of it, I sponged on some darker ink. The layers were then separated - the two clear layers were crumbled & spread back open. Everything was layered & adhered with a brad.
Pretty cool, right?! And ssssooo not fru-fru! ;) Come check out the rest of the DT at The Technique Twist & link up your own creation for your chance to win!
